It's a matter of what MUA is the lesser evil for syncing to a smartphone.
I've had all kinds of issues when moving between work and home with syncing.
Partially because I must use Outofluck, er, Outlook at work. All kinds of
duplicates and such.
The core issue I see is this. Sync software generally isn't developed with
a 24 hour day in mind. Meaning, work hours and personal hours are still
part of a larger set of "hours". You only have 24 hours in a day, so you
have to manage everything in a single calendar. But when syncing between
work and home -- all hell breaks loose. Duplications or missed events,
So -- if you have to sync to a device -- (contacts, events, mail) -- then I
dunno yet. If you do not need to sync, I'm more apt to use the GMail
interface (web based) for everything. Enable the shortcut keys and you can
get quite a bit done quickly.
