Smartner's MoMail Enables Secure SMS Access to Enterprise E-mail Accounts Wednesday 20 December 2000 PDF Print Smartner Information Systems Ltd. releases MoMail, a software product that enables reading, receiving and sending e-mail messages on an existing enterprise e-mail account with a GSM phone through SMS. After MoMail has been installed on the company’s own server, employees can access their e-mail accounts with GSM phones. MoMail is an operator-independent application, and the use of it does not require setting up a new e-mail account. Smartner’s MoMail provides an additional point of access to existing enterprise e-mail accounts. In practice this means that employees can now manage their e-mails not only from a desktop, but also with their GSM phones. They can browse the headings of new e-mails as well as read, reply and forward individual messages at any time and at any place. Users have full control of all these functions; new e-mails are sent to the GSM phone only on request, not automatically pushed. By providing a user interface for managing enterprise e-mail accounts from a mobile terminal, MoMail helps employees keep up to date with new information. From the technology point of view, the benefits of MoMail include fast installation and high-standard data security. Apart from the SMS messages, the e-mails remain inside the company’s firewall. Identification of users is based on SIM-cards, and sessions as well as passwords can be used as additional security mechanisms. As a CD-ROM application, MoMail can be installed on the employees’ desktop computers rapidly and easily. The company only needs a Windows NT Server, and a Siemens GSM modem. MoMail supports POP3 and IMAP4 protocols, thus enabling access to Microsoft Outlook, Lotus Notes and many other e-mail accounts. For companies with mobile workforce, MoMail is a cost-efficient and currently the fastest available means to provide access to enterprise e-mail accounts with a GSM phone. "Wherever you can send a text message, you can also use MoMail. A user can read his e-mail messages from China just as easily as from Finland", says Janne Orava, Product Manager of Smartner. "GSM phones are much more common and also cheaper to use than WAP phones and Communicators. Text messages provide a secure and cost-efficient means of communication." MoMail is currently in test use in ten enterprises. The employees of Finpro in Helsinki and London, for instance, have for the past month had access to their e-mail accounts with their GSM phones. The efficiency and user-friendliness of the application has been a positive surprise, and Finpro recently ordered more MoMail licenses.
