Sync SmarterMail with Apple Address Book and iCal (OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard)

E-Mail: Using our SmarterMail Services
Users can synchronize SmarterMail with iCal and Address Book using the CalDAV and CardDAV protocols on computers running OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard). These protocols can be used to synchronize contacts, calendars and notes. NOTE: For ease of configuration on the Mac, the system administrator should setup a CalDAV and CardDAV SRV DNS record. This is what makes the Mac auto discover settings.
