ActiveSync is supported on our Windows SmarterMail services. ActiveSync is an optional addon to your Windows web hosting account and is $1 per email account (which you wish to have ActiveSync enabled for) per month.
ActiveSync is different from Exchange Web Services announced with SmarterMail v9, ActiveSync does not work with desktop clients (like Microsoft Outlook), it is developed to work with and for mobile devices such as Apple iPhone, iPod, iPad, Android devices, and of course Windows Phone 7 devices.
This is a technology developed by Microsoft to provide over-the-air updates of email, contacts, notes and calendar events. It is an automated synchronizing solution for your wireless handheld device and our SmarterMail mail server / Webmail interface. It can also aid in saving battery life as your device no longer has to constantly check for new messages, the device sits idle until our server pushes new messages, contacts, notes, and calendar events to it automatically!
No more having to wait or have delays between receiving messages, the moment our server receives a new message your phone is notified within seconds of the new message! Apple, Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Palm and Motorola are a few of the manufactures that make handheld devices that support this technology. If you are not sure if your device supports this technology, please consult your manual or call your provider for more details.
