Hmm. I was looking more for something like:


Which is a real one from my setup.

If I email that to myself and click the URL on the iPhone (with 
Synthesis installed), it asks me to verify the SSL cert, then asks for a 
username and password. After that, it becomes an automagic persistent 
seperate calendar with full (AFAICT) synchronisation - very cool.

I've read all the SyncML docs I can find, and they do mention the same 
sort of technique you do, but I can't seem to get it to behave.

So far, all I've managed with contacts is to export a VCARD dump, email 
that to myself and do a merge on the iPhone. That works very well, but 
not as cool as proper 2 way sync.
