Dear Customers of Open-Xchange,

With availability of the new Open-Xchange OXtender for Business Mobility, now users can receive push e-mail and synchronization of contacts, calendar and other information from their Open-Xchange account to their smartphones, including the iPhone and Blackberries, as well as Android, Windows Mobile and Nokia phones and many others.
Open-Xchange selected the Microsoft Active Sync protocol for synchronization due to the wide range of supported handhelds and smartphones. This ensures that any Active Sync client on a mobile device can set up and start using mobile e-mail and PIM (personal information manager) functions without complex configuration. In addition, software clients for almost all other platforms including Symbian-based devices, Blackberry or Google Android are available.
