When you sign into Affinity for the first time, we’ll start automatically syncing your email/calendar data, which we use to auto-create people-type and organization-type contacts for you.
- People-type contacts are auto-created when there are full names associated with each email address (see When does Affinity auto-create contacts?).
- Organization-type contacts are auto-created based on the person's email domain.
- If the email address is Jane Doe <firstname.lastname@example.org> and Jane Doe is auto-created as a contact, then we'll auto-create Airbnb (airbnb.com) as an organization as well, and also associate it with Jane Doe.
Note: Gmail accounts sync every 4-6 minutes, and Office365 and Exchange accounts sync every 6-8 minutes
While Affinity syncs with emails in most folders in Gmail, Office 365, and Exchange, below are the few exceptions that we explicitly do not sync:
Folders we don't sync for Gmail
- Chat, Draft, Spam, Trash
Folders we don't sync for Exchange or Office 365
- Clutter, Conflicts, Conversation Action Settings, Deleted Items, Drafts, Journal, Junk, Junk E-Mail, Notes, Outbox, Quick Step Settings, RSS Feeds, RSS Subscriptions, Suggested Contacts, Sync Issues, Conflicts, Local Failures, Server Failures, Tasks, PersonMetadata
