Exchange 2003

Company Blogs November 13, 2007 By Brett Swaim Staff

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

  1. Push mail
  2. Sync'd Calendars
  3. Sync'd Todos
  4. Sync'd Mail
  5. Sync'd Contacts

I love that when somebody sends me an email, Exchange 2003 pushes said mail right to my phone.. no waiting! I love that when said email contains a calendar invite I can accept it and not only does it add the appointment to my phone, I see it in Outlook Web Access and on all my computers (Office 2004 for my mac, Office 2007 for Vista). I love that when I put a todo on my Vista machine to get milk, I can walk right out the door, go to the store, and see on my phone exactly what to get... I love that on a high priority message my HTC Wizard reads the email to me immediately! I love that I can start an email from my phone, go to my computer, open drafts, and finish the email!!

What's that? You sent me an email a week ago and I need data from it while I'm on the road? That's okay, it's on exchange I can grab it!! I need a phone number for a co-worker but don't have it saved in my contacts? That's okay, when I start dialing my exchange server will use LDAP to hit my companies LDAP and search for anyone there AS I DIAL!!!

I weep as I realize that one day I may have to get rid of my Exchange server or my HTC Wizard... that day will be such a sad day...

"I could do that with Remember the Milk + an iPhone + enter in XYZ option" - hence why I loathe the linux users mindset.

One integrated system, or spending half of your life in configuration constipation.

Of course, I don't use Exchange, but I just thought I'd use the moment to take another jab at the Linux guys ;)

Somebody gave me one star... I'm sad... Is there a reason? Was my blog post riddled with grammar errors and misspellings? Feedback people!
