    Are there any mail programs that get get mail from MS Office Web Access. I have tried with my web browser but the page is just symbols. It doesn't load the right way. Not sure why that is.

    thanks

    Normally you'd browse to http://your server name/exchange. Try replacing exchange with oma. OMA stands for Outlook Mobile Access, and Exchange version 2003 has this. It is webmail for devices. Quite a nice interface actually. Works well with Blazer and you can see calendar, contacts, tasks and email.

    Corsoft has an interface in works (in-beta) for Aileron Mail which enables email management via Outlook Web Access. www.corsoft.com

    I had no end of aggrevation with OWA and Balzer. Technically, it worked, but the frames in OWA just made Blazer next to useless to actually read mail, check calendar, etc. In fact, OWA not working well in Blazer was the major reason that I switched to WebPro. I'm really happy with WebPro on my Treo 600 with OWA. Works great.

    z3bum, do you have a Treo 600, or a 650? I understand that Blazer for the 650 is better than Blazer for the 600 (not hard to do), which may explain how you found Blazer + OWA to be viable?

    I tried that it can't verify

    robbalaze, this WebPro does it work over top of Blazer or do I need to delete Blazer when I load WebPro? I'm new to all this and not sure how it works, can you have 2 browsers at the same time without them conflicting? I have a 600 and got app happy at first so many resets I hard reset everything and now I have a happy 600....very rarely have a reset.



    Thanks Tippy

    IMHO the user experience with OMA or AWFUL. Try and reply to (or create) a message... EZ - only 37 clicks later you've sent the message!! Reading a message? No problem....as long as you don't mind reading it in spoonsize chunks. Attachments? Aw...you probably REALLY don't ever need to read attchments anyway

    Tippy,
    Blazer is still there after you install WebPro. You can use both (but I wouldn't know why one would). WebPro is tons faster than Blazer (partially because it uses a proxy, which can be disabled if you hate that sort of thing). I think it formats a lot better than Blazer too.

    Blazer itself is in ROM and cannot be deleted, but you can delete all of the blazer data files in RAM (using Filez or the like) after installing WebPro. If you launch Blazer, it'll recreate them all.

    You can set WebPro as the default browser app in Prefs -> Default Apps.

    The only issues with WebPro is that it has CRAPPY 5-way support. Also it tends to leave a lot of files laying about, but they are all identified with the correct creator ID, so they should all go away on deleting the application (if not an uninstaller or even Filez will take care of it).

    I never use Blazer anymore, once you see how fast WebPro is with the proxy enabled, and how well it handles OWA, I'll bet you are the same. You can trial it before paying for it, and I'd suggest that you do (it only took me a few days to pay for it).

    WebPro is by far the best OWA browser - I used it on my 600. Unfortunately I couldn't get it working on the 650 (no formal support for it, unless that's changed in the last few weeks), and the 650 Blazer was torture to use OWA with - a last resort only. Fortunately my company did some security finagling and I can use Versamail ActiveSync now, so my mail problems are over - but I was bummin there for a while!

    Eric,
    Can you detail the changes you needed to get Versamail ActiveSync working? Did they enable secure IMAP thru the firewall?

    Would the use of the proxy (which I don't really understand) be why I can't get to my OWA? The url for my OWA starts with https (rather than just http). So if Web Pro can't help me with this, it's still worth it for internet speed? I'm a new 600 user and haven't used my Treo a ton on the web yet so am not sure I can make a good comparison between Blazer and Web Pro.

    Midwife, proxy and SSL are fine. Those should not be the problem. What happens when you try to get to the OWA page? One thought is that your OWA page may not be configured to serve to non-IE browsers. I have no real clue how WebPro identifies itself to the HTTP server... Can you get to the page using, say Opera from a PC?

    Thanks for trying to help, robbalazs. I am having lots of problems with WebPro. When I try to get to my OWA page it says:

    Security error
    Please contact your system administrator
    HTTP 403 forbidden

    Yesterday I was trying to use it to check a flight status on Southwest. I kept getting

    Page not found
    Please refresh the page and try again
    HTTP 401 Gone

    I thought that might be a fluke so just tried it again to no avail.

    I've noticed that it looks like when I am using Web Pro the data connection is dropping while I am doing something (i.e., light goes from yellow to green--I have VZW). Also, I noticed on the Southwest site that it doesn't look like the full address is in the Wedb Pro browser?

    I am using the trial version. Maybe that is the problem? Then again I don't want to buy it if it isn't going to help me any!

    Mark,
    I tried to verify with corsoft and it couldn't. I found after talking with my National Office the reason I can't access OWA is because the site looks for IP verification, and being on the treo I have no IP address. Can anyone verify this for me. If this is the case couldn't I go to T-Mo and switch to VPN Internet which is the same price and be able to get OWA then?

    For what it's worth, with my Treo600, I could use OWA, with the 650 I have not been able too, even though it supports Java script. Anyone find a workaround with Blazer and not another browser? I think some poeple are able to do it?
