Concerning software, as i already mentioned:

Evolution email client, Android device on mobile phone and maybe some email client like ATMail or so, but not necessarily the last one.

Yes, i actually have Xperia Pro on Android 2.3.4 however i didn't even try libsynthesis...

Which default SyncML? I don't think Android has SyncML by default.

Some vendors add their own implementation. On the Synthesis mailing list
(the SyncML stack that SyncEvolution is based on) there was a discussion
about bugs in the Sony Xperia SyncML:

This looks similar to what you encounter: message decoding bugs due to
malformed SyncML messages coming from the device.

Funambol only tests with their own server. There have been various
issues with that client. I tried and couldn't get it to work.

If you want a reliable SyncML client for Android, then I suggest giving
the one from Synthesis a try.

The error codes themselves aren't that informative. The [ERROR] messages
themselves are what matters. I agree that a FAQ with an explanation of
each one would be useful, but that's a considerable effort and I don't
see any volunteers for that task.

The HOWTO section in the Wiki is an attempt to fix that. It's a Wiki, so
anyone can improve or add to it.

There are several technical articles linked to in the developer section
which give an overview:

It should all be possible. But the devils in the details - what software
do you want to run on each of these clients?
