You will need to restart the Everyplace Synchronization Server. After this you
should see your new server up and running.
2.3.4 Creating a default synchronization setting for the user
A device profile is a group of settings (filters) that limit the scope of synchronized
data. Device profiles are device-specific. Each device can have one and only one
profile associated with it at a given time. To synchronize data to his device, a
user must create his own device profile or use one created by the administrator.
Device profiles can be categorized into the following two groups:
򐂰 Administrator profile
Administrator profiles are created by the Everyplace Synchronization
administrator. These profiles can be linked to by user profiles such that the
user profiles will automatically inherit changes made to the perspective linked
administrator profiles. You will define administrator profiles using the
Synchronization Administrator Profiles portlet.
򐂰 User profile
Each Everyplace Synchronization user will have a user profile for the targeted
synchronization device. A user profile can link to an administrator profile, or
can be created separately. A user profile can be created by either the
Everyplace Synchronization administrator or by the user. You will create user
profiles using the Synchronization Administrator for User portlet or the
Synchronization User Profiles portlet.
Chapter 2. Exchange 2000 and 2003 synchronization 145
In this configuration, you will create an administrator profile called ITSO Mobile
Users. You will then use the Synchronization Administrator for User portlet to
create a user profile for the user, and link the profile to ITSO Mobile Users.
Perform the following steps to create a default device profile:
1. Log in to the portal using the administrators user ID and navigate to
Administration in the portal controls, and from the left links choose

Synchronization Administrator Profiles.

4. You have many options to configure e-mail synchronization. There are two
sections:
The top section under Creating profile lists filters specific to the default
device profile you are creating.
The bottom section under Global Mail Filters lists filters used for
all e-mail
synchronized.

5. We will deal with the global settings. Notice that by default attachments are
not synchronized. However, in this example we will use the attachment with
extension .doc and a size of less than 250 KB.
–Select Include only files with the following extensions (comma
separated).
