Configuring Lotus Notes Traveler
Accessing Your Mail & Calendar on Your Windows Mobile Device
Lotus Notes Traveler provides two-way, over-the-air synchronization between Lotus Notes servers and select handheld mobile devices. 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.
When new mail messages arrive in your Inbox they are automatically sent to your handheld device without you needing to do anything and can trigger a notification event, such as a tone or a device vibration. Updates made on the device such as sending a new e-mail or changing a calendar entry are synchronized with the server as soon as a network connection is available.
