I’m SO excited!!! For the last year my co-workers and I have had no mobile calendars (as I’ve written about at some length). Well, after letting us test both the iPod Touch and the newer wireless Palm, my work decided to let us choose our favorite toy… er… device. I chose the iPod Touch, and today IT CAME. I spent a few hours getting it set up with updated software, registering it with the campus wireless network, and then figuring out how to sync it with my calendar, mail, and contacts. What fun!!!!
By the way, in case anyone else is wondering how to sync Zimbra with an iPod Touch or iPhone and can’t find any documentation from either Zimbra or Apple, no, you’re not insane. The instructions just aren’t out there. What you do is:
- make sure you have the 2.0 version of the iPod software and the latest Zimbra upgrade
- set up a new mail/calendar/contacts account
- select “Microsoft Exchange”
- and then enter your Zimbra account information
After that, things should work beautifully.
