Zaurus Software Review
Email workgroup server
Sharp has introduced Zaurus Mail to enable corporate departments or small
business to communicate while in or out of the office. The new messaging
application for the Zaurus keyboard-enhanced PDA allows small workgroups
of up to 20 users to exchange messages and Zaurus data using a single Windows-based
PC that has the Zaurus Message Center server software installed.
Taking advantage of the device's built-in messaging client software, Zaurus
Mail transforms the server PC into an electronic post office. providing
workgroup messaging without the need to install a local area network or
subscribe to a public email provider. Each copy of the server can handle
up to 20 clients, and the system supports full passworded mailboxes. You
can create and view individual messages or groups. When they connect to
the server, either locally via infrared or remotely via modem, all the user's
mail will be available in their individual In folder. Users can upload and
download mail, as well as view the contents of their In and Out folders.
Zaurus Mail is not limited to Zaurus users. Messages from non-Zaurus users,
such as phone messages or reminders, can be entered into the Zaurus Message
Center software on the server PC. The server also supports the Motorola
NewsCard pager and other paging systems for alerting users that time-critical
mail has been received at the mail server.
Zaurus Mail is cost-effective solution for small workgroups with low volume
mail usage. Zaurus Mail costs $99.
