Last week apple announced a number of software features and additions to the upcoming release of iPhone 2.0. One of the most significant features was the support for Microsoft Exchange servers.
Now users will be able to access their work based email with full Microsoft Exchange support on their iPhone.
Since Apple often mentions how the software you use on your iPhone and iPod Touch are based on the same code as their counterpart applications on your Mac computer, it suggests that Microsoft Exchange support will also be coming to mail.app.
This possibility is significant as it helps push Apple’s products more into the business market
IF Mail for OS X does gain full Microsoft Exchange support then users will be able to take full advantage of their work email without needing to purchase Microsoft Office 08 to gain access through Entourage.
Apple may have added one more feature to their iWork package, Corporate Email Support through MAIL.
