Posted: 28-Apr-2005 [Source: Rogers Wireless]

[Canada's Rogers Wireless introduces ISP email (POP/IMAP) and Desktop Redirector MyMail solution at no additional cost as part of their Data Service Plan.]

Toronto, ON & Redwood SHores, CA -- Rogers Wireless Inc. and Visto Corporation today announced the availability of MyMail: a new wireless service that provides instantaneous, two-way push e-mail, calendar and contacts to a customer's wireless device of choice.

By simply downloading the MyMail application over the air to any MyMail supported wireless device, consumers and businesses using ISP email (also known as POP / IMAP or Internet email) will immediately be able to receive, send and synchronize their e-mail while away from their desk. Account activation and service setup can be completed directly from the device by visiting All that is required is a valid Data Service Plan from Rogers Wireless along with the e-mail address and password, MyMail takes care of the rest.

In addition to wireless email, Microsoft Exchange and IBM Lotus Domino users will enjoy a fully synchronized, real-time, calendar and contacts experience via one of two methods:

1. Visto Enterprise Server (VES): IT Managers, familiar with "middleware" applications will appreciate the security and easy of installation offered by the VES. Acting as a behind-the-firewall solution enabling real-time delivery and synchronization of e-mail, calendar and contacts, the VES is a powerful, yet cost effective method of accessing mission critical information while out of the office.

2. Desktop Redirector Application: Customers in organizations where the VES has not been deployed can access their information by installing a small application onto their desktop PC. As long as the PC is left on and connected to the corporate infrastructure, this application will "redirect" in real-time, all e-mail, calendar and contacts to the wireless device. As an added feature, customers can delegate this functionality to another computer, allowing up to five users to access their information via one, always on desktop PC.

MyMail from Rogers Wireless, powered by Visto Mobile, is available immediately on the following all-in-one wireless handhelds: The palmOne Treo 650, the palmOne Treo 600 and the Audiovox SMT5600. Rogers Wireless expects to introduce new devices in the coming months compatible with the MyMail solution. Both the ISP email and Desktop Redirector MyMail solutions are included as part of a Data Service Plan, there is no additional cost for these services. The suggested retail price for the Visto Enterprise Server is $1999; however until August 31, 2005, Rogers Wireless customers can get the server for free. For more information please go to
