The following instructions will erase the contents you may already have stored on your device, under Calendar & Contacts. At this point in time, there is no guaranteed method of merging the contents on your device with Zimbra (VMail) accounts.
If you have critical entries in your Calendar or Contacts on your device, which you need to save (BEFORE SYNCHRONIZATION), please contact the ITS Support Center first to determine if transfer is possible. ITS has not found a method that has provided 100% data transfer.
Users have two options to access their email, calendar, and contacts on their Internet enabled device - either OTA (over the air) or Wi-Fi:
1) Zimbra Mobile Access, 2) Microsoft Exchange.
This method uses the iPhone/iPod Touch Safari browser to access your account online. It provides direct access to your account data, and is not a method where you actually synchronize the data to your device (for off-line viewing). Basically, how you access your account via a computer web browser is the same method here - only that the version is made for a micro-browser.
Launch Safari and enter (bookmark) this address: vmail.svsu.edu
Users are also able to Bookmark the Zimbra Mobile, and create an icon on the device for quick launch & access. Log into your account, then click the + symbol to Add Bookmark, then choose Add to Home Screen.
Microsoft Exchange (via ActiveSync) is a popular default solution for many handheld devices. It allows you to configure the device to manage all contacts, calendars and e-mail, or to choose which individual service you want stored on your device.
