KWLUG Meeting: Monday, July 4, 2016, 7pm

Synchronizing mail, calendars and contacts

Meeting Date

Chris Irwin lived a personal experiment to synchronize his mail, with the following goals:

  • Access mail from the commandline
  • Synchronize between hosts, with no information totally local
  • Use standards
  • Minimal annoyance day to day
  • Synchronize with Android

To accomplish this he uses a stew of utilities and libraries: mutt, notmuch, Khard, Khal, Todoman, iSync/MBsync, vdirsyncer, git, CalDav-sync, CardDav-sync, OpenTasks, Baikal and DavMail.
