    Currently, I use the Seven.com software (which is branded as Sprint's Mobile Email Work app) for accessing my business email that is behind a firewall. It entails running a redirector on my Windows machine, and it allows me two-way access my Outlook calendar, email, and contacts from my Palm Centro.

    Developer Seven hasn't announced whether they'll be supporting the Pre, nor has Sprint via Mobile Email Work. If need be, I'll run the Seven app within the Classic emulator, but I'd obviously prefer a native solution.

    Any suggestions?

    what mail server is your employer using? perhaps you could use Exchange Active Sync (EAS)? that would sure be better than that awful redirect kludge crap you're doing now.

    My understanding is that they are running Exchange 2003, but without VPN, no access to your account.

    you may be able to do it with your Centro already. IT may just need to download and activate EAS if it has not been already. not sure if VPN is necessary - that's a different animal.

    info you'll need -

    ActiveSync Info

    1. Server Address – ex. mail.xyz.com
    2. Network Username/Password
    3. Domain Name
    4. Port Number

    I wish it was that simple. iPhone users can't even access their EAS accounts without VPN now.

    The port for EAS isn't accessible without being on the corporate network, so a VPN tunnel must be up & running on the handheld (until they figure out some other form of secure access).

    You are so out of the loop. IT guys eat Hostess Twinkies, not doughnuts.

    ...

    Well, OK, unless they're free...

    • EAS - Exchange ActiveSync: It's a protocol/client application combo that allows mobile devices to syncronize data with server (different versions allow other functions as well, but that's basic enough).
    • VPN - Virtual Private Network : A system including a service and client that allows a device to appear as if it's on a local area network (LAN) remote from the client. In the use you see it here, this allows devices connect to Exchange systems that don't have EAS avaialable on the public network.
