Over-the-Air Synchronization with BlackBerry, iPhone, and Windows Mobile Devices

SmarterMail email hosting services include the SyncML protocol to achieve Over-the-Air synchronization of contacts, calendars, tasks, and notes. Users can send and receive email messages directly from their mobile devices. Most devices are supported, including BlackBerry (Curve, 8830, etc.), iPhone, and Windows Mobile devices (Motorola Q, Palm Treo, Samsung BlackJack, etc.). Not all functionality is available on all devices. Additional information is available on the SmarterTools Website.

Powerful Web Interface

Users have access to shared calendars and the availability of their co-workers to schedule appointments. Tasks can be assigned and emails managed 24/7 with accuracy, speed, and security.

98% Antispam Out-of-the-Box

Effective out-of-the-box antispam protection is not just a possibility it has been achieved, without requiring the purchase of additional modules or hardware. SmarterMail utilizes a structured, multi-layered strategy to achieve 98% protection with exceptionally low false-positives. Technologies such as SpamAssassin, Greylisting, and Sender Policy Framework (SPF) are only a few of the techniques employed. SmarterMail email hosting services can also be integrated with third-party solutions (e.g., Barracuda, Message Sniffer) to enhance protection, if desired.
