Emtrace has just released what they are referring to as the “first push Email client for Android with built-in Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync.” The app is dubbed Moxier Mail Beta and will offer G1 users direct push synchronization. Users of Moxier Mail will be able to receive, reply, compose and delete email messages.
- Direct push synchronization with Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 & 2007
- Easy to receive, reply, compose and delete Emails like on your computer
- Secure environment with SSL support
- HTML Email with Microsoft Exchange Server 2007
Of course, it looks like the beta version will have some limitations, according to the Moxier website, these following features will be unavailable in the beta client.
- Folder includes both inbox and sent items, additional folders unavailable
- Sync up to 3 days
- Attachments unavailable
- Text body is limited to 1000 bytes
- Other settings are unavailable
- Inline images unavailable
- ‘Reply to all’ unavailable
- Contacts, Tasks and Calendar are unavailable
Unfortunately, a few of these features, such as contacts, tasks and calendar are hard to live without, but I guess all things considered this is beta. Nonetheless, this should offer enough features to get a good testing of the app.
Although there was no mention made of how much the final version will cost, it is stated that from now until March 31, 2009 users can download a free copy of the beta app from the Android Market.
