IBM and RIM are tightening integration between Big Blue’s Lotus Domino e-mail server and RIM’s Blackberry mobile...
IBM said its developers were now busy producing new tools to support the Blackberry system.
The aim is to make it much easier for Lotus Notes e-mail users to get their messages to their mobile devices using the Domino server and Blackberry software.
Domino 7 will now fully support Blackberry mobile devices. RIM is offering Domino-using companies a free ten-user version of Blackberry Enterprise Server version 4.1 to support their mobile employees, as part of the new partnership.
The Blackberry system is the market leader in automatic push e-mail systems, although Microsoft is now making a serious challenge in the market to support its Exchange e-mail server platform.
