Microsoft plans mobile e-mail push upgrade
Tech Ed: Microsoft plans mobile e-mail push upgrade – Computerworld: "Microsoft Corp. plans to offer an upgrade to its Windows Mobile 5.0 handset software later this year that will provide push e-mail technology and improved security management, the company announced today at its Tech Ed conference in Orlando. The Messaging and Security Feature Pack for Windows Mobile 5.0 is based on wireless features that will be added to Exchange Server 2003 in Service Pack 2 (SP2). ‘One of the key components of the Messaging and Security Feature Pack is to enhance the Outlook mobile experience by pushing e-mail from Exchange to handhelds equipped with Windows 5.0 using our new Direct Push technology,’ said Jason Langridge, U.K. mobility manager at Microsoft. ‘Another key component is to provide the ability to protect managed devices directly through Exchange.’ "
