View Full Version : Synchronizing Gmail/yahoo
19th November 2007, 09:56 PM
Im sure Ive asked this before. Does anyone know what software there is to use on a nokia mobile likely to be N73 or 6120 to sync email and Calendar either from a yahoo or gmail account?
I have yahoo go it does the email but not the calender.

Well, not sure if there is anything yet but Google did make the APIs to their calendar available here (http://code.google.com/apis/calendar/) so the chances of someone having written an S60 app are reasonable. There is already Companionlink for WM and other devices, but not S60.

Solo12002 - drop me a pm with your email address in and I'll buzz you over (if i'll still got it) the old native symbian client of yahoo go that featured full calendar integration.

Not ideal, but you can sync gmail with the native client on your handset using imap.
For the calendar use gcalsync (http://www.gcalsync.com/). It's also a google group (http://groups.google.com/group/gcalsync).
Download this version: 1.3 Beta (http://code.google.com/p/gadjet/) as I think it offers more functionality.
This also lets you sync your google apps calendar. I think you can read and write both ways, so changes made in your phone upload to the google calendar.
As far as I know, there is not one client out there that syncs both email and calendar. Shocking really. It would be useful if the native calendar could take a web feed. Anyone know of a calendar that can do that?
Yahoo go would have been a winner for me, but like you I was amazed they withdrew the calendar function.
Why is S60 poorly served by calendar and email? Yes, both can be done, but neither is perfect.
