Hp Openmail To Include Wap Interface
today announced OpenMail Anywhere/WAP, a Wireless Application Protocol(WAP) interface for OpenMail 6
, one of the leading businessmessaging/collaboration solutions for Linux and Unix systems.OpenMail is the only major business messaging solution currently available througha WAP connection anytime, anywhere.
Using OpenMail Anywhere/WAP, mobile OpenMail users can now access thesame corporate e-mail that they use at their desktops, includingMicrosoft(R)Outlook, Netscape Navigator, Lotus cc:Mail and QualcommEudora. Users can access OpenMail's wireless Web service throughWAP-enabled phones.
OpenMail Anywhere/WAP is certified with the latest WAP phone and WAPgateway from Nokia. It is also certified with Phone.com
's Up.Link 3.1gateway and UP.Browser 3.1. This means that OpenMail is alreadycompatible with the majority of Internet-ready handsets being soldworldwide. In addition, OpenMail will be certified later this year withWAP phones from Ericsson and the TANTAU Wireless Internet Platform. Workis also ongoing with third parties to certify Phone.com's HDML handsetbrowsers, which are widely distributed by wireless carriers (HDML issimilar to WAP).
The fact that you don't have to use a different email address to check your email on your phone is a big plus in my book. Anyone else have experience with email on phone's or PDA's?
