Isn’t this addressed by new, native, built-in SOGo Active-Sync support?

That only works for Outlook 2013+...

Right, ActiveSync is usable only for Outlook 2013.

However  there is another reason to have SyncML/CalDav/CardDav alternative for proprietary ActiveSync protocol even for Outlook 2013 - potential patent and legal issues. ActiveSync itself is patented by Microsoft and it can decide to charge it's users or do other things which can make life with ActiveSync more unpleasant. Even SOGo documentation ( recommends to contact Microsoft before you start using ActiveSync. So companies might end with large deployment of Outlooks using ActiveSync and then Microsoft simply changes their licensing and you will have to pay - as happened to various Android vendors...

Still don’t get it. My understanding is:
- Openchange and Outlook Anywhere setup should be used for Outlook 2010
- SOGo built-in ActiveSync for Outlook 2013
- SOGo built-in ActiveSync for Android and iOS devices
- IMAP/CalDav/CardDav for Thunderbird and alike clients

Am I missing something? Why use Funambol or GetOut? Is there a reason to get some +funccionality or is that just an alternative to the above?

Thanks and Regards
