iPhone support is coming to Novell GroupWise!

GroupWise 7Alex Evans, GroupWise Product Manager has announced in his blog that the ActiveSync protocol is coming to GroupWise in a future update. What does this new native support mean for iPhone users? Well, it means that you will be able to sync your GroupWise calendar and contacts to your iPhone via the Exchange conduit (located under Settings-->Mail-->Add Account). This is truly exciting. ActiveSync is quickly becoming the mobile sync standard for devices and businesses that do not have or cannot connect to a BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES). Of course, there is the variable of your IT supporting this feature, but it is still a reason to rejoice! I recommend sending this article to your GroupWise Admin staff to inform them of the update :-)

For those of you not using and iPhone, this also means you can sync to on supported devices too, such as the Palm Centro, Palm Pre, Palm Treo Pro and other Windows Mobile devices and Symbian OS.

Finally! I can haz groupwise sync!

Great news! Maybe more people will now drop Windows servers for Linux servers.

Frustrated Groupwise User says:

Ok-- when? It's 8/3/09 and I've heard nothing else about Groupwise syncing with the i-phone? What updates are out there?

Chad Garrett says:

Novell is adding ActiveSync to GW8. When and how it will get implemented is still to he determined. I do not know anyone who is using the beta :-(

Don Bernardo says:

Maybe it well become a christmas gift or even a aim at new year. Maybe someone can send them a box of red bull ;-)

Charles Robertson says:

Groupwise is end of life so I can't imagine ant further development will take place for native syncing. To be honest, couldn't come soon enough. Groupwise was a great email solution, for years heads above anything else on the market but Groupwise 8 put an end to that. What a horrible product.

Steven Smith says:

GroupWise is not end of life and still is a great email solution. The current version is 8 which is excellent. Older version move out of support.

Jeff says:

I work for Novell and can tell you as a matter of fact that GroupWise is not end of life. In fact there are many people internally using iPhones and synchronizing them with GroupWise.

Ed H says:

I use GroupWise 8.0.1 HP1 today and have my Motorola DROID (Google Android 2.0.1 OS) syncing to it via ActiveSync built into the Android OS connecting to the Novell Data Synchronizer Mobility Pack (beta) gateway. It works great. All my Contacts (Multiple Address Books), Emails, and Calendar items all sync bi-directionally. GroupWise is here to stay for years to come. The GroupWise Windows client is outstanding.
