Lotus Notes Traveler Provides Synchronization

The Office of Information Technology (OIT) is pleased to announce that Lotus Notes Traveler has been set up on a dedicated server and is now available to American University faculty and staff.

Traveler synchronizes e-mail, calendar, to-do, address book, and journal data in real time and works much the same as a BlackBerry using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server platform. That is, when mail messages arrive in your inbox they are automatically sent to your handheld device; you need do nothing.  Traveler can also trigger a tone or vibration to notify you of an event. Updates made on your device—such as sending an e-mail or changing a calendar entry—are synchronized with the server as soon as a network connection is available.

Supported devices are: Apple iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch; Windows Mobile and Nokia Symbian. More devices, including Android phones, will be added in late 2010.  For more information, click here.
