Like Windows Mobile’s connection to a PC over ActiveSync, Multisync allows you to share and synchronize files with your Linux PC, as well as calendar and contacts information with the Evolution software.
Used in conjunction with SynCE (which is used to establish and maintain the connection) these two Linux apps for Windows Mobile PDA and phone devices successfully replicate (and some say improve upon!) the ActiveSync connection used by Windows PCs.
In Ubuntu (and other similar distros) Multisync can be accessed from the Applications > Accessories sub-menu.
Upon launching the Multisync-gui app (after first connecting your Windows Mobile device and confirming it is attached via the SynCE tray icon), select Edit to open the Settings menu.
From here, you can setup your sync preferences for contacts, events and tasks, with the following options:
Address Book: choose to sync Address Book or No Address Book.
Calendar: choices here are Personal, No Calendar or Birthdays and Anniversaries.
Tasks: choose from Personal or No To-do.
Meanwhile, sync groups can also be setup depending on which device you have connected – the data categories Contact, Note, Event, Todo and Data can all be disabled from future syncs.
To apply these changes to your device, click OK, then Refresh to sync!
