Enable mobile phones to sync with the Zarafa server

Z-Push is an implementation of Microsoft's ActiveSync protocol which is used 'over-the-air' for multi platform active sync devices, including Windows Mobile and active sync used on Apple's iPhone, Androids, Sony Ericsson and Nokia phones.
Open source Z-Push enables any PHP-based groupware package to become fully syncable with any ActiveSync-compliant device.
