Windows Mobile E-mail

There are many phones on the market running a Mobile version of Microsoft Windows. The current version is Windows Mobile 7, although earlier versions will work too.

It uses technology called Active Sync. It synchronises all the key data which you find in Microsoft Outlook on your network, including E-Mails, Calendar, Contacts and Tasks with your mobile. The synchronisation can be set up periodically or real time. With real time, as soon as an E-Mail arrives on your network, you will see it on your mobile. If you modify a contact on your mobile, it will update the contacts on your network, and so on.

The key benefits are (1) you carry key office functions in your pocket while on the move and (2) all data is automatically backed up should your phone be lost or you upgrade.

The synchronisation takes place over the phone network. Packages are available (usually called data services) which allow a fixed number of MB per month. Typically 10MB per month is more than enough. If you have a phone with WiFi, it will automatically synchronise using the internet whenever the phone is connected to a WiFi point, meaning the transmissions are free.

Windows Mobile also includes miniature versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Acrobat so you are able to view and change documents you receive as attachments to E-Mails on your mobile.

Windows Mobile is the most functional of the 4 technologies described here offering services like Bluetooth, Network Printing, Shared Folders and a simple file browsing system similar to Windows on your PC. Of course you can also browse the internet too using Internet Explorer.

Blackberry Mobile E-mail

Blackberry is the pioneer and one of the leaders in Mobile E-Mail technology.

While individual phones can access some of the data in Outlook, using Blackberry Enterprise Server you achieve full synchronisation including, E-Mails, Calendar, Contacts and Tasks onto your mobile. The synchronisation can be set up periodically or real time. With real time, as soon as an E-Mail arrives to your network, you will see it on your mobile. If you modify a contact on your mobile, it will update the contacts on your network, and so on.

The key benefits are (1) you carry key office functions in your pocket while on the move and (2) all data is automatically backed up should your phone be lost or you upgrade it.

With Blackberry there are excellent packages to keep data costs down if you travel internationally. As mentioned above, if you need full synchronisation you have to install a dedicated Blackberry Enterprise server, so the initial outlay is higher. Therefore this method makes more sense only with a large number of Mobile users within an organisation. For up to 30 phones you can use Blackberry Personal Server which will happily run on your existing SBS server.

If you have a Blackberry phone and an office network, talk to us, and we will have it set up for you in a jiffy.
