Configured yesterday on iPad and iPhone as Exchange server and is working well. Getting email pushed quickly to both devices. However just noticed that I am not getting HTML email through this,only text based emails with embedded http links. Is that correct?

Regards

HTML syncing with the IMAP backend is not currently supported, but it will be eventually.

Ok thanks. So what's the plan with this Seth? Will this be a new service? Any thoughts on pricing?

It will be an official service in time. No pricing for it since it's based on an open source implementation of ActiveSync called z-push. If I had gone with my original plan of proxy mirroring through Microsoft Exchange (which would have a real, expensive, licensing cost for Windows Server and Exchange per user) then I'd have done a per-user up charge to offset the licensing costs. I'm not sure anyone would have jumped on board for additional costs like that since Rollernet's philosophy has been single price point for resource levels instead of price-per-feature.

There may be limits on the number of ActiveSync-able mail boxes for lower level accounts, but that's more dependent on what server load looks like (i.e. how many people actually use ActiveSync) since each connection holds an Apache process open for itself. The way it works is it runs on a server (currently it's on the webmail server since webmail isn't high load for us) and it acts as a translator between IMAP and ActiveSync HTTP XML.

All I can say is sweet. I will be testing it as well. Currently I don't need contacts or calendar, just email syncing.

Updated the back end to 2.0beta5. A change in beta4 should cause clients to resync automatically.

Just set this up with a user on a iPhone 4S.

Will post back anything interesting that occurs.

Just out of interest, do you have anything more on HTML syncing?

It will be installed, I only checked once every few weeks for a new version and hadn't noticed the final was released.
