    "Must-have for home PC of Droid & iPhone users"

    April 2, 2012  |   By rc_in_Dallas

    Pros

    FINALLY can synch your gmail contacts, email, and calendar in one desktop application, and your Hotmail too! This makes it possible for Droid and iPhone users to keep their phone and desktop contacts & calendar easily in synch.

    Cons

    Tricky to configure a Hotmail account. (But if you have a droid, you are already trying to get away from Hotmail).

    Summary

    This is the missing link for mobile phone uses who need to keep their contacts, email, and calendar in synch on the same account from both phone and home PC. much easier to configure & use than Outlook. Some hints for Hotmail acct configuration, which is tricky:
    username = email address.
    Incoming server: pop3.live.com, security SSL.
    Sending mail: SMTP server SMTP.live.com, security (no SSL), Authentication: username & password required (re-enter username & password).
    Set synch for no more frequently than every 15 minutes. YOU WILL GET AN ERROR IF YOU TRY TO SYNCH MORE THAN ONCE EVERY 15 MINUTES; This is a Hotmail 'feature'. Ignore it and it will work in a few minutes.
