Microsoft’s Direct Push Technology Comes to Palm OS-Based Treos

by Reads (7,893)

The VersaMail email application on recent Palm OS-based Treos already can use Exchange ActiveSync to access Microsoft Exchange Servers. But Palm, Inc. has announced a significant improvement to this feature.

PalmA free update enhances VersaMail by adding Microsoft’s Direct Push Technology, which gives users connected to an Exchange Server immediate, automatic wireless updates of email, calendar, and contact information.

Push Email

For a user with an updated Treo and an Exchange Server, any item that is changed on the smartphone is immediately updated on the server, and vice versa. New emails are sent to the Treo as soon as they arrive on the server.

VersaMail also allows users to accept or decline meeting invites or wirelessly access their company directory.

For those who don’t have access to Exchange through their company, many wireless carriers offer access to one for an additional fee.

This feature is already available on Windows Mobile-based Treos.

Pricing and Availability

This update is available free of charge for the Palm Treo 700p and Treo 680.
