sharing evolution data without exchange/groupware

Postby lawmanuk » Fri Aug 08, 2008 7:54 pm

evolution mail seems to be able to replace outlook in most of its functionality.

1. i'm not sure if there is a simple way to share calender/contact information with other evolution users (without a big exchange or similar server).

something like google calender between users? and something else for contact?

sharing over internet would be great too, rather than just lan.

found a free way to do this apparently without a groupserver, and to do it globally too...

syncevolution using scheduleworld seems to fit the bill.

this seems pretty amazing, free and well, does it make exchange pointless?

i'll install and see how well it works.

here's a frontend gui that simplifies installation and running:

i think this should be in the wiki at some stage, as loads of people would love to have a way of sharing contacts/calenders/notes without the need for groupware servers which are a right headache.
