IceWeb is offering users a 30-day free trial of
IceMail for iPhone. IceMail is a hosted Microsoft Exchange e-mail subscription service.
IceWeb chairman and CEO John R Signorello said that his company’s efforts have been made to make sure that iPhone users have access to an Exchange-based e-mail system even without requiring any infrastructure changes to a corporate IT environment.
“There has been much press regarding how the iPhone might be ‘shunned’ by enterprise email users because of the lack of perceived compatibilities with Microsoft Exchange implementations. We’re working to ensure this will not be the case,” he said.
There have been rumors that Apple will offer some sort of Activesync connectivity for the iPhone — Activesync is the push synchronization technology from Microsoft that allows e-mail, contact and calendar sync with Exchange. If this ultimate proves correct, IceWeb plans to offer that capability to iPhone users as well, included with the IceMail subscription.
IceMail service starts at $8.50 per month.
