Cingular Wireless launches wireless e-mail solutions for PDAs and Smartphones
Cingular Wireless has announced the launch of two new enterprise-class wireless e-mail solutions, Xpress Mail Enterprise Edition and Xpress Mail Network Edition. Based on software from Seven, Xpress Mail Enterprise Edition operates behind the corporate firewall and Xpress Mail Network Edition is a managed service hosted by Cingular. Both solutions are suitable for organizations of all sizes and are designed to work on a variety of mobile devices, including palmOne's Treo 600, offered by Cingular.

Xpress Mail Enterprise Edition and Xpress Mail Network Edition allow secure, real-time wireless access to e-mail, Personal Information Management and other company information. Xpress Mail Enterprise Edition puts a dedicated wireless mail server behind the corporate firewall, making it ideal for businesses that prefer to manage their own information and communications resources. Businesses that want the performance, functionality and security of an enterprise-class email solution, but do not want to own or manage the technology, can opt for Xpress Mail Network Edition and have Cingular Wireless manage the service from its secure datacenter. Both solutions use security and encryption technologies such as AES, SSL and VPN, ensuring confidentiality, integrity and appropriate authorization at all points in the system.

Xpress Mail Enterprise Edition and Xpress Mail Network Edition provide the following features:
  • Behind-the-firewall server (XMEE): installing this lightweight server is simple; most businesses can be up and running in less than an hour;
  • Managed solution (XMNE): Zero-footprint, with no incremental hardware or software to purchase, install and manage;
  • Push-based data access: Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Domino, IMAP and POP e-mail, personal contacts, global directories and documents are all available in real-time;
  • Over-the-air synchronization: All data and updates are delivered over the air, with no need to cradle the device; synchronization schedule and alerts are customizable;
  • Multiple inboxes: Access to multiple e-mail accounts from the same user interface;
  • Global access: Users can securely check their e-mail from any PC browser across the world; a great compliment to an organization's remote access strategies;
  • Enterprise-class security: Utilizes best-of-breed security technologies such as 128-bit AES, SSL and VPN; data is never replicated to third-party servers outside the firewall.

    Xpress Mail Enterprise Edition and Xpress Mail Network Edition are available on palmOne's Treo 600 handheld wireless device.

    Xpress Mail Enterprise Edition and Network Edition airtime is US$29.99 per user per month including 5MB of data usage, or US$39.99 per user per month including unlimited data usage. There is a one-time setup and installation fee of US$1500 for Xpress Mail Enterprise Edition. Xpress Mail Enterprise Edition requires a one-time connection fee of US$999.
