What you can do is use Evolution 2 -> Backup
And then push that change up to a webserver either by mounting
it with FUSE or something like that, there are a lot of diffrent
solutions and they depend on your access to server and your
ability to setup server your self. Then you do the same on the
other end Backup -> Evolution 2. And remember to turn on auto.
You can also use the start hidden options under Options and then
adding multisync to System->Preferences->Session->Starup Programs

Hope this helps.
