There is an ActiveSync <-> SyncML bridge. I used it years ago with an iPAQ, and it worked ok (don't remember the name). A lot better than latter day smartphones, at least for me. The bridge let me sync with Evolution too, so no servers were needed either.

SyncML: an introduction, its potential, its problems

What you describe sounds like ActiveSync for locally connected devices. There's also ActiveSync for over-the-air synchronization. My (as I said, unfortunately very uniformed) impression is that these two share the name, but not necessarily the same protocol.

Was this bridge open source? Any chance of finding the name again? I know that Synchronica had (has?) a closed-source bridge between ActiveSync and SyncML.
