Users can synchronize BromleyMail 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.
