The trend in mobile communications is all about anywhere access to your data; on your device, on your desktop or laptop computer or from a web browser. Having all of your devices synced has become the expectation for business users and now more and more consumers expect the same.
With all the excitement surrounding the release of Apple™s new iPhone 2.0 last week, one big question is where do I get one? Of all the features that it brings to the table, the one sticks out as being the most likely to impact the mobile phone world; support for push email and over the air sync of contacts and calendar items. That is great news for everyone who has an exchange server and wants an iPhone, but what about everyone else?
Apple has created a solution called mobile me, really just the next evolution of the .MAC account. They are calling it Exchange for the rest of us but what does that mean? If you are a mac user, mobile me is a great way to get the most out of your new iPhone. But with a PC running Outlook and a mobile me account what do you get? You can setup Outlook to access your firstname.lastname@example.org email account. Using the Windows control panel you can also configure your contacts and calendar items from Outlook to sync with your mobile me account. It is fine for email but less than perfect for calendar and contacts.
The answer is to get a fully functioning exchange account from mail2web.com. We offer several solutions from our (updated) mail2web LIVE 60-Day Free Trial up to full business class exchange email.
