Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync (previously known as EPhost Push Email) gives you two-way over-the-air synchronization between your EPhost Webmail account and your mobile devices for email, calendars and contacts. Enjoy Microsoft Exchange-like features at a fraction of the price. Compatible devices include the iPad, iPhone, Windows Mobile, Droid and Blackberry phones.* Unlike the other synchronization methods, Microsoft ActiveSync uses direct push technology to sync email, calendars, and contacts to your EPhost Webmail Account.

  2. Avoid SMTP sending issues regardless of what Internet provider you use. This method does not use POP3 or IMAP and directly routes mail, contacts and calendars to the EPhost mail server.
