    Just convinced my IT dept. to allow me access to corporate email on the T600 (we use Lotus Notes as the email client). This is actually a big deal as the company has several thousand employees and they only use Blackberries for senior execs (I'm close but not that high up yet).

    Spoke to our admin, told her all about the T600 and it's capabilities and asked if there was a solution. Turns out, they will support it. I'm probably the only non-Blackberry user with wireless handheld access.

    I have to use Cadenza though. I'm getting hooked up on Monday. Anyone with any experience with this software? http://www.commontime.com

    My company has Outlook Web Access behind the firewall. Now that the Treo 600 can handle javascript, I should be able to enter my password to get to OWA. I assume this is true for others...any similar situations?

    Hmmm, sounds like we might be working for the same company....sr. executive types use Blackberry and some higher level managers, Notes is standard, mCadenza was rolled out about a month ago in our organization. I'm going to start off by "testing" Sprint Treo 600 but ultimately want the T-Mobile GSM Treo 600. I haven't heard a lot about Cadenza except from other inhouse IT folks that evaluated the software. I heard that mcadenza was developed by possibly some inhouse IBM/Notes folks who decided to branch out.

    I'll also be getting a Palm Tungsten (WiFi enabled) and will be officially testing it for corporate usage with mCadenza but hopefully mcadenza will have a short cycle as we testing an IBM offering that will have same functionality with extra "bells and whistles" but wirelessly ....small world....

    We're in the same boat. Is anybody able to verify that Outlook Web Access works with the new Blazer browser on the T600?

    Thanks.

    I'm not sure if this is the application that you are referring to or not but.... I/we have been using "OWA for PDA" from leederbyshire.com for about a year now at it has been great. It is a third party OWA (Outlook Web Access) for MS Exchange environments. The web pages are all HTML (written in .ASP) and formatted for the small display. Works great on the Treo 180/270/300 as well as Symbian devices, danger/sidekick, etc. Also very inexpensive ($155 USD for unlimited users), and is able to be secured via SSL certificate (HTTPS).

    It has been a great approach for us. Not a Push-Technology, but a good corporate (Secure) email solution that is cross platform/device.

    HTH,

    We've been using the leederbyshire stuff as well for OWA on our fleet of Treo. The guys on 270's have been using this exclusively. The rest of us use Sprint Biz Connect, and then fall back to to OWA when BC is for whatever reason unaccessible.

    It works- Not my fave way to access outlook, but it definitely works.

    I can access my company's outlook mail from the OWA page. It's not very well laid out on the small screen, but it does work.

    My accounting firm's in the same boat.

    I've used Commontime with Orange SPV smartphone and it worked fine, no problems - there was no server software required.

    mo-bile, do you have an update on how the intall went and if you're up and running? Can you (or anyone) give me an idea of what software I (and/or my company) have to install and the costs associated with this? The website was a little lacking in info. My Company uses Lotus notes and the senior ppl have Blackberries.

    thanks.

    I asked the guys at Cadenza for information on getting corporate email on my Blackberry - as I mentioned earlier, we use Lotus Notes for email and blackberry exchange server/Blackberry devices exclusively for wireless email. I was looking for something that wouldn't require server software since our IT wouldn't approve it ("We only do blackberry").

    From the guys at cadenza:

    <<<<<
    Information regarding the Treo 600

    I have checked with the support department and we need to make you aware of
    a few points.

    -With regards the Treo, we will have software running on the device in November, not currently (although it is a Palm device, their are several Handspring modifications that create an imperfect experience for mNotes). Another point is that the Treo device will actually need a server piece to replicate wirelessly, which I know was a key factor for you. (your corporate standard is Blackberry and you don't want to be cutting against the grain with an unsupported piece of software).

    -In the main, this doesn't look great for our recruiting you as a customer and I think the difficulty with wireless is that you need someone at the server end to at least create a profile or give you permissions (it may be that you can use the same profile settings as your laptop if you have any remote replication going through your laptop).

    Other than that, there isn't a great deal more that I can say.

    Any comments?
