'Synchronize' as in a one-way download from Tomcat, or as in a two-way

Outlook 2000+ has the notion of a COM add-in that would work for this -
construct such an add-in, give it a property page so that you can
configure its Tomcat server, and let it poll every so often.  We've done
similar work in the past.

Will there always be an Exchange server behind this?  That would make
life a lot easier if there are a significant number of users, as the
sync could be done 'behind the scenes' by a daemon running on/near that
