Corsoft Aileron 5.0 "always-on" e-mail for Palm OS

Corsoft Aileron 5.0
Corsoft launched Aileron 5.0, a wireless email solution for Palm OS handheld devices. The new version of Aileron provides a more user-friendly interface, adds support for sending & receiving Adobe PDFs and various other attachments, and allows users to check multiple email accounts – both business and personal (including AOL, MSN, Hotmail and Yahoo). Aileron 5.0 also offers “push notification” to users of Handspring Treo devices, providing users with "always on" email service that notifies them when incoming email messages have been received.

"People today commonly need to access multiple email accounts—both business and personal—but most wireless email applications don’t provide an easy way to send and receive emails from more than one account," said Chirag Patel, Corsoft’s president and CEO. "Aileron makes it easier than ever for a mobile professional to manage all of their communications through a single device."

Users of Handspring Treo devices can enjoy "always-on" email and be notified as new email arrives. Aileron provides push-enabled data notification for new messages using Short Messaging Service (SMS). In a future release, Corsoft will expand “push notification” to users of Palm Tungsten C and other WiFi-equipped devices.

In some instances, it is more appropriate to respond to an email with a phone call rather than a written reply. For converged devices, Aileron offers tight integration with the handheld’s Address Book application and telephony capabilities, giving users the choice of either replying to email messages via phone call or email.

A vital ingredient to any functional email solution for business purposes is the ability to send and receive attachments. Aileron 5.0 provides comprehensive support for attachments, including MS Office files (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint), Adobe PDF, and graphic images (JPG, GIF, BMP, etc.). It integrates with third-party Palm OS applications including Web browsers and office document solutions (such as Quickoffice, Documents to Go, WordSmith, etc.). Users can receive a document via email while on the road, make edits and wirelessly transmit it back to the office within minutes. Corsoft has also added the ability for users to send and receive faxes directly on their handhelds.

Aileron provides a robust and highly secure wireless messaging solution for companies. It uses a multi- tiered architecture, optimizing network bandwidth and greatly reducing the typical download time for each attached document. Aileron Enterprise Server provides secure and native access to corporate mail servers like Microsoft Exchange. Corsoft uses Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) to secure data between the handheld and the Aileron Enterprise Server, eliminating the need for Virtual Private Networks (VPN). It also maintains wireless synchronization with each users’ email boxes to report all messaging activity on the mobile devices, such as messages read, deleted or sent.
