    Default Android activesync: one way calendar

    Hi,

    I'ved been trying Zimbra NE. I got my Android device (HTC Desire fw 2.2) to sync with Zimbra. I tried synching just the calendar, and I did get my new Zimbra appointements on the Android device.

    But when I deleted one of the appointements from the Android device, it didn't get deleted from the Zimbra calendar (even after a few refreshes).

    It seems I accomplished a one way sync from Zimbra to Android. Is this what I can expect, or is there a trick I don't know about?

    Phone: HTC ThunderBolt 4G
    Exchange ActiveSync
    Zimbra 6.0.8 NE
    Using Outlook Connector

    Sync problems with calendar I have found so far:
    - Modify reminder on phone event clears Zimbra reminder

    Some weird things going on. HTC problem possibly?

    I just tested deleting calendar event on phone and it did delete it without a hitch on Zimbra so that sync works okay for me.

    I will keep updating this post with my findings.

    I am updating to 7.0.1 in the next few weeks. Hopefully that will clear up these problems and viewing HTML emails on the phone.

    We have upgraded our server to 7.0.1 and still are having issues with Samsung Galaxy's not sending calendar items created on the Galaxy to the Zimbra server. Calendar items from the server to the Galaxy work fine.

    I have an HTC Evo w/ the Zimbra [Edit]version and OS[/Edit] in my profile. I am not having any sync issues with the calendar or contacts. I am, however, using Cyanogen mod and not the stock HTC Sense. I didn't have any problems with Zimbra 6.0 either.

    I post this in the hopes of helping you rule out a problem on the Zimbra side of the equation.

    What exactly do you mean by "Zimbra settings in my profile"? I need to set up a samsung galaxy android phone that comes with some sort of a mime client... at least it has 'set up an exchange account' option. I wonder what that is and whether or not it works with zimbra (NE).

    Sorry, I meant "Zimbra version in my profile" which I believe is Zimbra Network Edition "7.1.1 on Ubuntu 10.04 x64." Sorry for the confusion, last week was a rough week and I am still recovering.

    I have not used Samsung Android phones. I have used HTC Sense's mail client as well as the AOSP email application. Both handled Zimbra just fine.

    Have you tried adding an event and seeing if it appears on the Zimbra web client? Also, if you go to Cyanogenmod.com you can find a link to the AOSP google apps and extract the Email.apk from there. You can install that and see if you have problems with it. If that works, I would say it is a bug with Samsung's email client.

    As info.
    I talked to HTC about the phone not pushing back calendar updates.
    After testing it was recommend that I default the OS on the phone back to factory and not delete/erase the SD card.
    After setting up a new exchange zimbra account the phone now has 2way sync working correctly .
