New toy: Treo 750 with Managed Exchange

by Volker Weber

Surprise, surprise again. I was waiting for a Blackberry Pearl which RIM has promised to send. UPS guy rings at the door, delivers a box. Inside is not a Pearl, but a Treo 750 from Palm, complete with a managed Exchange account. Here is a very quick photo. I did not even fetch the flash.

Instead of connecting to the empty Exchange account I quickly entered my account on the Collax server and was able to pull down new mails immediately. Then I hooked it up to the Mac, which does not work out of the box. Instead I downloaded Missing Sync for Windows Mobile and within minutes had synced all my contacts and (one of my) calendars to the Treo. The 750v is not supported yet, and the sync is only partially functional.

"had synced all my contacts and calendars to the Treo"
Can you also sync your mail with that tool?

OT: That's what I'm missing on my E61. I have to sync mail via imap , its not possible to synch mail with bluetooth

Since this Palm uses Windows Mobile 5, syncing everything including emails is easy - at least with ActiveSync on Windows, via IR, Bluetooth or USB. Unfortunately not over WLAN.
Nice machine though - I wonder about the Palms battery performance. My Vodafone VPA compact II sucks energy like a hungry baby - more than 2 days (max.) with DirectPush enabled and some talking is impossible.

Sounds very promising ...

> was able to pull down new mails immediately

Und wie sieht es mit Push (Mail, Termine und Kontakte) aus? Kann das der Collax?

Yves Luther, 2006-09-15

Nein, das kann er nicht. Und der Treo kann kein IMAP idle. Die Zusammenstellung passt überhaupt nicht. Windows Mobile taugt nur für Exchange-Kunden. Ich habe vorübergehend eine Vodafone-Testkarte, auf die ich Traffic draufnudeln kann. Also pollt der Treo den Collax einfach.

In Kürze gibt es BlackBerry Connect für diesen Treo. Dann schauen wir noch mal.

Noch was: Der Collax kann mir die Mails auf den Hosted Exchange weiterleiten. Dort aber kann ich weder meine normale Absenderadresse noch ein Reply-To einstellen. Klassische Sackgasse.
