Microsoft scores Nokia for Exchange

by Volker Weber

Just off the phone with Ilari Nurmi, Vice President Eseries. Nokia is betting the farm on Exchange. They just announced they will deliver Mail for Exchange for all S60 3rd Edition devices, all 43 of them. That is 80 million shipped by July 2008, plus all new devices that are coming out. At the same time Nokia is dropping further development of BlackBerry Connect.

Nokia is essentially partnering with Microsoft for mobile email. There is still IntelliSync, which is also used by Nokia Mail. And others can develop on S60 whatever they like, but Nokia is going to ship Mail for Exchange big time.

So, will Nokia also fix their SMTP implementation in the S60 e-mail client, too?
Their software issue with STARTTLS keeps me from using SMTP/TLS on my new E71 when I try connecting to an exim4 server. :-(

If it's your server, you could try adding the non-standard SSL-on-connect to your Exim installation and have your client do SSL on TCP port 465.

You'll have seen T-Mobile's advertisements on German TV for the iPhone: they call it a business phone and explicitly say: "Nur mit Microsoft Exchange".

Disconnected times for Notes/Domino users?

That's the plan for the weekend :)

What would happen if the Domino server suddenly would speak ActiveSync?

I don't know what would happen. But it would be a wonderful thing, especially if feature complete. At a minimum: sync mail, address, calendar, tasks, remote lock and wipe device, enforce password policy.

In one sweep, IBM would enable millions of devices for mobile access to Domino. And end lots of discussions.
