Activate SCC Sync for MS Exchange


In the latest SmartCloud Connect updates SCC Sync for MS Exchange can be activated directly from the Add-In; it is no longer necessary to open SCC Sync settings to do that.

You need to activate SmartCloud Connect Synchronization in the following cases:

A corresponding dialog will be brought up automatically in the Sidebar on the first start or in case 6 consequential SCC synchronization attempts get rejected by your email server.


To (re)activate your SCC Sync, enter your Exchange mailbox’s Login and Password and click Connect to Exchange.

In some configurations you may also need to enter a valid Exchange Web Services link specific to your company’s Exchange configuration. To do that, click the More v button and paste the EWS link provided by your local admin into the field.


Note that if Sync activation is skipped, a number of key SmartCloud Connect features performed by SCC Synchronization will be unavailable.
