Right.  This is a necessity for us too, if we are to integrate the
Exchange and Cyrus systems.  One of the interesting things about
Open-Xchange is support for push via SyncML.  There is a list of PDAs
that it works with.

The devices we support now need the intermediaries of either GoodLink
or BES attached to Exchange, and if I understand it right (I might not),
they use a MAPI connection to find out when there is new mail.  If so
it appears they would work also with systems like Open-Xchange that
offer MAPI connections.
