POP3 calendar and contacts won,t sync on Z10

I managed to get my POP3 e-mail (COGECO) working, but my contact list and calendar won't sync to my Z10.

 

Anyone figured this out yet?

I believe you will need an IMAP account for that.

Re: POP3 calendar and contacts won,t sync on Z10

I think you need to be on an Exchange ActiveSync server to sync the calendar and contacts wirelessly.

Also caldav is supported for the calendar.

IMAP will sync email folders very well, but it does not do calendaring or contacts.

Re: POP3 calendar and contacts won,t sync on Z10

To be honest, I can't find any documents anywhere that suggest that they support remote calendar/contacts sync. Here's the official support page:

If your email sever offers IMAP for your email, they may wirelessly sync calendar and contacts.

I know mine (GoDaddy) will a paid IMAP hosting.

Otherwise, hotmail, outlook.com, yahoo and gmail offer this on their email accounts.

You would import your contacts and calendar to that new account.

Re: POP3 calendar and contacts won,t sync on Z10

Thanks for the help. Seems my e-mail host (Cogeco) does not offer IMAP.  So my solution is to live without wireless syncing (no really big deal) or to move to Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.  Since that would mean changing a long-time e-mail address, I'll live with it for now.

Thanks, I appreciate the research.  Appears COGECO doesn't offer IMAP service, so I'm stuck with out wireless syncing for now.

Well, no, not really.

 

I created a new outlook.com account and sync my calendar and contacts ONLY through that account. I haven't yet sent or received one email (well, I did one, a test email) through that account.

Otherwise, I am using it only for contacts and calendar sync.

 

My personal, private domain email account remains intact and my primary email account.
