    Writing a synching plugin for Mac Outlook

    A colleague of mine wants to synchronize the calendar on his Nokia 6100 with Outlook on his Mac system. He has a USB data cable that works fine on PC.

    Would it be possible for me to write an Outlook plugin for his Mac to perform this synchronization? If so, how should I go about it?

    I guess it must have USB, or else the colleague wouldn't have bought a USB data cable. I myself have no idea, I use PCs.

    Yes, Mac's have USB ports.

    What part are you having trouble with?
    Presumably, this will be of use to you.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    Thanks, that link seems pretty good. The part I wasn't sure about was writing the Outlook plugin. Specifically, how to write an Outlook plugin at all, and also how to handle the communication with the phone. Do you have any advice about those aspects?
