today announced OpenMail Anywhere/WAP, a Wireless Application Protocol

(WAP) interface for OpenMail 6, one of the leading business

messaging/collaboration solutions for Linux and Unix systems.

OpenMail is the only major business messaging solution currently available through

a WAP connection anytime, anywhere.

Using OpenMail Anywhere/WAP, mobile OpenMail users can now access the

same corporate e-mail that they use at their desktops, including

Microsoft(R)Outlook, Netscape Navigator, Lotus cc:Mail and Qualcomm

Eudora. Users can access OpenMail's wireless Web service through

WAP-enabled phones.

OpenMail Anywhere/WAP is certified with the latest WAP phone and WAP

gateway from Nokia. It is also certified with's Up.Link 3.1

gateway and UP.Browser 3.1. This means that OpenMail is already

compatible with the majority of Internet-ready handsets being sold

worldwide. In addition, OpenMail will be certified later this year with

WAP phones from Ericsson and the TANTAU Wireless Internet Platform. Work

is also ongoing with third parties to certify's HDML handset

browsers, which are widely distributed by wireless carriers (HDML is

similar 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?
