Sync eGroupware and Android phones

As of eGroupware 11.1 Android phones can sync their calendar via ActiveSync. To set this up, do the following:

  • Settings -> Accounts -> Add Account -> Exchange
  • enter your D-PHYS email address
  • Next
  • enter your D-PHYS password
  • Next
  • edit Username so that it only consists of your D-PHYS login (not the email address)
  • edit Server so that it reads
  • Next
  • OK the next tab (Remote security administration)
  • set the Account Options to your liking
  • activate Device Administrator - don't worry, we don't use this feature at all
  • go back to your Calendar and your eGroupware events should pop in a couple of minutes
