    Treo and Exchange

    This message could also be in the "Hardware" or "Servers" forum I suppose. But I haven't been here for a while.

    I'm looking for comments from anyone using a Treo to remotely recieve their mail from an Exchange server. (i'[m running Exchange 2003).

    My boss is considering a cell phone upgrade for the principals, and he refuses to do the obvious thing and just buy me one and I'll tell him how well it works <g>.

    Looking for any comments, problems, stories, amusing anecdotes...


    Thanks

    Re: Treo and Exchange

    The Treo 650 supports "Exchange Active Sync," which is the easiest way to interface a mobile device with Exchange Server. (See palmOne - Products - Treo 650 Smartphone - Exchange ActiveSync.) However, the Treo 600 did not. With my 600, I use Sprint's Business Connection Personal Edition, a client that runs on my desktop pushing mail out to the phone and coordinating replies and new messages so they end up in my Outbox. Each service provider offers different solutions, some with much richer features than others. You should get two week trials of all of them and write up a big comparison. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    A 650 user tells me that the unit needs to be reset about once a day; with the 600, I have to reset about once a month. Probably firmware updates will fix any lingering problems with the 650 any day now. <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    Re: Treo and Exchange

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    We've pretty much dropped the project at this point. There were concerns about how well Activesync works in reality, and as a PDA, the Treo doesn't really measure up well to the Tungsten and other high-end PDAs.
