Windows Mobile 5 Push Technology, SBS and the KJAM.

I am delighted to report that once I downloaded and installed the latest KJAM ROM from imate.com this evening it took me a grand total of 30 Minutes to get my Windows Mobile 5 phone receiving email quicker than my desktop!   Small Business Server 2003 made it really easy as I had a self signed certificate pre-prepared for me.

This is such a cool technology…   now I can finally get my emails without having to manually synchronise or synchronise without any email being there for me.  I can also ensure that any Windows Mobile device on our network is secure and if stolen can be remotely wiped.    It worked without any issue even on Vodafone Ireland’s network.   No more Blackberries for my clients 🙂

    Nick,
    You beat me too it, still waiting on the Feature Release for Windows Mobile 5 ROM for my imate the SP5M, I wish Imate would hurry up and update the rom for all their latest devices.

    Nick,
    I’m trying to get my head around the push e-mail. Does exchange forward the mail to your mobile e-mail address or is it sent via SMS? Reading some MS docs on always-up-to-date (AUTD) seems to imply SMS.

    First, I suggest you download and read:

    Basically as emails hit your mailbox, there is a “kind of” SMS message that is sent to your phone telling it to sync. It is not a SMS message that the phone will see in the text messages, but one that the current version of Windows Mobile will recognise.

    I agree, it is a nightmare to debug…
