IBM pushes Notes to iPhone users

Latest beta supports Exchange ActiveSync

By CBR Staff Writer

IBM has produced a version of its Lotus Notes collaboration software that will automatically push e-mail and synch contacts and calendaring data with the Apple iPhone.

iPhone users can already access Notes e-mail via third-party software or IBM Lotus iNotes, but the additional of support for Exchange ActiveSync will mean messages are actively pushed to the increasingly popular smartphone. 

Users will soon be able to use their iPhone to access Notes contacts and calendar without having to be on-line.

IBM said today that a beta release of Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5.1 collaboration software includes plans to support Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync in version 8.5.1 of Lotus Notes Traveler.

This effectively extends Lotus Domino automatic synching capabilities for e-mail and calendaring tools to the Apple iPhone. 

The software already supports BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 5.0, which was announced last week.
