Smartner Duality Professional Email

Has anybody tried using this on their P900?

Smartner ( are positioning themselves as a Blackberry style corporate email push solution - yet you buy software that only resides on mobile device.

Doesn't seem to make sense to be able to get Corp email pushed out from an Exchange server behind a firewall....web site doesn't bother to tell you any specifics and I don't want to buy totally blind from Handango....

Thats the thing.

A Blackberry or OneBridge server requires a server setup. The software monitors for emails then push's them out.

Duality is different and in my opinion nasty and cheap. You install it on your desktop. It monitors just your desktop for new emails then forwards them on through the internet.

For those in 'user land' this is great, cheap mobile email. For anyone who knows anything about IT its their worst nightmare. Users setting up there own wireless email solutions.

With a proper BB server or better yet a OneBridge server you get encrypted emails from start to finish. Security, custom settings and the like. With OneBridge its one better, banks like it cos it dosnt store anything on the server so no security risk at all.

By all means get it for your personal email, but if your company catch you using it I can gurantee it will break every last email policy they have.

Smartner can do both - personal or corporate installation. Further, they seem to be the recommended solution from Sony Ericsson ( I just read somewhere that Moorfields Eye Hospital traded their Blackberries for Smartner. Interesting indeed.
