I was more or less forced to try the various SyncML services supported
by Syncevolution lately. I thought perhaps I could share some remarks I

). But it's now nothing more than an
addressbook backup service. It no longer handles calendar, tasks nor
memos (so they could well be removed from the Mobical template).

from Syncevolution, but not from my phone). It's my best choice so far.
