No, all of these devices are not supported by SimpleSYN.

SimpleSYN synchronizes Outlook installations with each other; a computer running Windows Vista (32bit/64bit), Windows 7 (32bit/64bit), Windows 8 (32bit/64bit) or Windows 10 (32bit/64bit) is essential.

If you wish to synchronize Outlook on your iPhone, Windows Phone or Android device, please contact the manufacturer of your device.

SimpleSYN Standard is fully compatible with the Business Version. You can only synchronize over a local network with the standard version, however.

Please note: The SimpleSYN server has to be in the same local network as the client.

Further note: The Configuration Wizard in the standard version cannot establish a connection with the SimpleSYN server if the SimpleSYN server is configured for synchronization via the Internet.

Provided you have made changes to the default settings of the color categories, you will have to manually set up the list of color categories (formerly main category list) identically on all computers. The category list is not synchronized by SimpleSYN. The assigned categories in the items, however, are kept and synchronized by SimpleSYN.

    SimpleSYN requires an active internet connection for its operation. The internet connection is required to connect to a central server operated by SimpleSYN. This server is used to help in the establishment of a direct connection between the SimpleSYN server and SimpleSYN client. Only data required for establishing the connection is transferred via this central server. After establishing an connection, SimpleSYN uses the best connectivity available.

    If SimpleSYN Business is used to synchronize via the Internet and it is impossible to create a direct connection between SimpleSYN server and SimpleSYN client, e.g. because of Firewalls NAT or Routers are blocking the direct connection, SimpleSYN uses a relay server as a last resort. This relay server allows SimpleSYN to communicate even if only outgoing traffic is allowed from your networks.

    In either case the connection between SimpleSYN will always  use an SSL/TLS encryption respectively.

    Your Outlook data is never transferred in clear-text nor stored permanently on our Internet servers (no Cloud).

    Note: Proxy-Servers are not supported by SimpleSYN. SimpleSYN must communicate with our servers located at services.simplesyn.net.

    We recommend using only POP3 accounts for synchronizing e-mail.

    With IMAP accounts your emails are server based and already synchronized between all your devices. Therefore SimpleSYN will only show none-email folders and will not let you create email folders. You can use SimpleSYN for synchronizing the other items, like contacts, appointments and notes.

    Category: General, Version 4.0

    When using the automatic synchronization it is also possible to synchronize all Outlook® subfolders automatically. The Outlook® subfolders will use the same synchronization direction and settings as their parent folder. Changes to the folder hierarchy below a selected folder are being synchronized

    SimpleSYN is a Client-/Server application. In your SimpleSYN network one PC must be configured as a server. The SimpleSYN server must be authorized in the Windows Firewall and/or Desktop firewall.

    Please make sure that SimpleSYN is allowed in your personal firewall.
