6. Configuration steps
The options in the settings window for Icewarp Sync are very clear and self-explanatory. If you need help with any option, please contact Armada Support Team. The “Synchronization” tab is the one we want to provide some info.
This is how OutlookSync works. It synchronizes the content of your mailbox on the server with the content of your local Outlook file (PST). Changes made locally will be uploaded to the server. Changes made to the server via webmail or from your smartphone via ActiveSync will be updated in Outlook. The “Synchronization” tab allows you to define what folders will be checked for updates every minute (default) and the ones you want to check for updates on a different schedule because they are not very active. The folders not enabled will not sync automatically but when selected in Outlook to see their content they will sync. In other words, they sync on demand.
See below the screenshots for the various tabs under the Icewarp Sync settings window.
