Despite being a Symbian S60 smartphone there is no Blackberry Enterprise Server support offered by Nokia.  Always a shame that the E-series phones get the business support but N-series support is limited.

However I have discovered a push-email client that delivers the same real-time functionality off Microsoft Server.  Full POP3/IMAP4 support too for the gmail/yahoo/hotmail clientele.

Only at a beta stage by the looks of things but it installed like a dream and works very effectively.  Go to preview.seven.com for any further details.

I selected Nokia as the vendor with S60v3 as the application.

Interested in feedback so I can convert the Crackberry users to the Nokia side........

The E series software, Mail For Exchange is out for N95, not sure if its exactly what you want, but you can find it here

Nokia has released an update of Mail for Exchange. This application enables communication of smartphones with Microsoft Exchange corporate servers (mail sync, calendar events, contacts) via ActiveSync protocol.

The version was updated to N-series devices, at least the N95 download catalog now contains Mail for Exchange. The new version supports PointSec4 and can synchronize fields of VoIP-contacts, OMA DM can set “Always-On” even when password is missing (the user can add password manually, or at first manual sync attempt the user will be prompted for password). Besides the new version contains error corrections.

Here you can download Mail for Exchange.

I was under the impression that Mail for Exchange was a pull-based system.  I know that all my other ActiveSync devices rely on pull from MS Exchange.  Are you able to clarify, as I'm keen to offer the user other options if they're suitable.

What other devices? Symbian, Windows Mobile?

The Nokia license includes the Direct Push, which means any device using this should be able to receive e-mails as they arrive on the server.
