Please help me come up with a solution for automatically syncing Gmail, GCal, my desktop client and my mobile in one big data orgy.
Currently I'm hosting my domain (email only) with Mailstreet
and I'm relatively happy with their services and support. However, the siren song of "Gmail For Your Domain"
has me entranced.
I'm in the market for a new mobile, and I'm looking at either a Blackberry 8800
or a Nokia E61i
(when it comes out). Regardless, I want the full wireless sync of not only my email, but also my calendar and contacts (notes too, if possible). I can get this through Mailstreet if I sign up for the Blackberry service, but it's not cheap, and the storage space is limited (100Mb).
So I was wondering how I can set up automatic synchronization between my desktop PIM (I use Entourage, as I like having one app with all the data consolidated), my mail host, and my mobile as with the BES
This sounds like something that Funambol
would provide, but I'm not clear on the Gmail For Your Domain integration aspect.
The end goal will be I can add a contact on my mobile, and it just shows up on my desktop a few minutes later (the same with email, and calendar items). If I have to pay for Exchange, so be it, but I'd prefer to get away from it if possible.
