Hi
i'm looking for a solution how an iPhone can be sync with exchange. I would not use ActiveSync. Is there a service like BIS for the Blackberry Devices?
As far as i know the MobileMe service did not work with an outlook exchange postbox.

Is there anything else?

Best regards,
Trexman

Activesync is the preferred solution worldwide - what is your problem with using Activesync?

You can use POP for email but I don't see why you would not use Activesync (like alanhardisty said). I use an iPhone with Exchange 2003/2007/2010 and there are no problems whatsoever.

Hi,

If you're looking got a 'BlackBerryesque' Enterprise solution for iPhone, why not consider Good Mobile Messaging? www.good.com.

Use by some very large multi-national corporates who don't want to open their firewalls to inbound traffic - works like BlackBerry.

Activesync uses HTTPS - most people / companies allow that in / out!

First of all, we want to sync inside and outside of our company.
I see 2 problem in our enviroment.
1. We have a internetconnection with a dynamic ip address
2. Using a SSL Certificate on this i-net line

So i'm searching for an external service provider where i can push all data and got that on the iPhone.

Are you not able to obtain a Fixed IP Address?

Hi,

Not all companies want to allow HTTPS into their environment - if you do it properly, you publish ActiveSync out via ISA/IAG and only allow inbound into a DMZ.

Good Mobile Messaging, like BlackBerry, establishes an outbound connection from the Server to Good's NOC and devices also connect to the NOC. In this way, end-to-end connectivity is established. All mail is encrypted at source and only decrypted on the device - the NOC has no facilities to decrypt the mails.

I believe this solution would address the issue of the Dynamic IP address as the server is connecting outbound and no devices connect inbound directrly to the server itself?

It's relatively easy to setup and you can trial it first if you wish.

Regards.,


RobMobility.

The obvious alternative is to host your mail externally and then you have no security issues and can use Activesync happily.

Hi,

FYI, I used Good when I worked for an internationally renowned IT hardware manufacturer  - we deployed it to 18,000 users worldwide and had no problems.

I know this is closed, but for your info.

Good team was part of the RID (Blackberry BES) team if I recall. there was a seperation in business drivers as one wanted to support only their devices (Blackberry via the BES) and the other wanted to provide the same BES type solution to all other mobile devices, introduce the GOOD team. so if you want something like BES. then what "ROBMOBILITY" said. GOOD is your solution.
