We’re happy to announce that Exchange ActiveSync is now available as an add-on enhancement for your email account. Though Exchange ActiveSync has been supported on our mail servers for some time, it is only now with changes to how Microsoft licenses this technology that we are able to launch this feature.
For those unfamiliar with Exchange ActiveSync, it is a protocol that has become a de facto standard to sync groupware and mobile devices. With the ActiveSync add-on, your email, contacts, calendar and tasks are synchronized between our mail servers and your mobile device (e.g. your smartphone or tablet) in real time.
ActiveSync includes synchronization support for most mobile devices on the market, including Google Android, Apple iPad and iPhone, Motorola, Nokia, HP, Samsung, LG and Windows Phones.
We know that we are a mobile society and having access to information on-the-go is increasingly important for your business and personal life. So we are glad to be able to make this feature available to help you be even more productive.
Why Use Exchange ActiveSync
ActiveSync makes your connections easy. You use one protocol to sync the majority of your data. You also receive this in realtime using Push technology, while other protocols work on interval schedules. With ActiveSync you receive a native sync to the device/application – meaning you won’t have extra calendars or contacts to work out of. One other perk is that ActiveSync adds an extra bit of security. When ActiveSync is enabled on a mobile device, if that phone is lost of stolen, you can remote wipe the device to protect any sensitive information.
ActiveSync makes it easy to give users the BEST and MOST EFFICIENT way to get native synchronization for their mobile devices – regardless of their platform. iOS, Android and Windows phones and tablets will be able to natively sync email, contacts, calendars, and even notes and tasks on supported devices.
