BigPond Premium Mail is great if you need to work on the move - or your colleagues do. Your team can keep in touch from anywhere with internet access out on the road, using an amazing range of web-enabled devices. What's more, those devices will automatically synchronise with the latest information, even as you switch access between your PDA, laptop, desktop and GPRS phone.The services are based on a licensed and fully managed version of Microsoft Exchange 2003, which is hosted and maintained by BigPond. It's an easy, flexible and cost-effective alternative to hosting your own organisational software. So you can synchronise shared calendars and contacts to schedule meetings and make appointments, create electronic 'to do' lists to make managing workloads easier, and send and receive email from anywhere with internet access out on the road.

Staff can access their Premium Mail features from portable wireless devices such as GPRS-enabled PDAs and WAP 2.0 mobile phones, within a GPRS coverage area. It's perfect for people who need access to their mailbox and other information while on the road.This mobile functionality includes two main types of access:

Delivers a text-based version of your email and other Outlook tools (Calendar, Contacts entries, etc) so that staff can:
BigPond Premium Mail mailboxes (and all their associated features) can be accessed from any PC with web access and a web browser. This means staff can access their mailbox from home, the office or their laptop, with no complicated set-up or configuration hassles. This Outlook Web Access is almost identical to the familiar fully-installed version of Microsoft Outlook.
Each BigPond Premium Mail account comes with a mailbox and a Sent Items folder. This gives staff their own email address, plus the ability to send and receive emails. Each mailbox includes 20MB of message storage, with extra storage available (fees apply).6
Contacts databases help staff to store, manage and access essential details for all the people they need to contact. Details (email, phone numbers, etc) can be organised by individual, or grouped into lists. And shared contacts help all team members to contact key customers, suppliers, each other and internal staff.
The BigPond Premium Mail Calendar gives team members an electronic diary to help plan and manage activities and appointments. Shared calendars can also be used to manage reservations for common resources like meeting rooms. With online access from anywhere, this can help mobile staff avoid time wasting and conflict over double bookings.
Tasks let staff create electronic 'to-do' lists for themselves. Items can be added, marked for future follow-up, and 'crossed off' when completed. It's a great way to stay organised and on top of activities or complex projects.
Shared folders provide a file where anyone on your team can place items for other team members to access. These could be anything from email information (using a shared inbox) through to bookings for shared company resources like cars and meeting rooms (using a shared calendar).
The Notes feature generates handy electronic yellow 'sticky notes' which you can use to capture ideas, phone numbers, contact details and other important information for later.
