Blackberry with ActiveSync

 
 
 
 
SmarterMail ActiveSync is available as an optional add-on to SmarterMail. Unlike the other synchronization methods, SmarterMail ActiveSync uses direct push technology to sync email, calendars, contacts, tasks, notes, and folders in real time. 
To activate SmarterMail Activesync on your email account, please contact TOAST.net Customer Service or log into My Account and request activation. Pricing is $1/mailbox/month. Be sure to include a list of all email addresses you would like to add.

Although the Blackberry does not directly support over-the-air synchronization with Exchange ActiveSync, you can purchase AstraSync, a third-party application that enables Exchange ActiveSync functionality on the BlackBerry.
