hi sebastien,

yes ... i am using imap on the iphone to cyrus without any issues --
it's syncing contacts/calender/tasks/etc where i'm stuck

i've downloaded and played with z-push -- the missing piece is to be
able to sync pc outlook data up to the z-push instance, and then sync a
mobile. looks like the only way to do that is to buy the zafara
product ... then your outlook syncs to zafara and iphone as well.

i'm trying to find a freeware solution to sync everything -- i've got
the funambol outlook plugin running on a PC, so the
contacts/calendars/etc all get syncd up perfectly. it's the iphone (with
the official funambol plugin) that only syncs contacts and not the rest.

looks like i'm going to have to break out of jail to get the full
funambol.app to work.
