Droid - How can I push corporate email

I am looking for suggestions on how to push corporate Lotus notes email/calendar/contacts to the new DROID. We are a BES shop, and we are demo'ing this device, and I want to avoid having to push from Notes to Google mail as a means to push the email. I was thinking of trying to standup a Verizon Wireless Sync Enterprise Server environment, but my account rep states that it is no longer a supported product. Any advice?

Android 2.0 does not support push for lotus notes. Just forward the lotus notes account to a gmail and use push mail from gmail that is your only option.

Why are you still using lotus notes anyway? *shudders*

I am in the same boat. Currently I use BB to sync good 'ol Notes till my company gets some sense to get out of Lotus notes. Anyone using Notes sync (thru USB / Bluetooth) with droid?

The last thing I want to do is to forward all corporate email to a gmail account. I should be able to use the native Mail client to go into Lotus via pop3 I am assuming? If a push to a google account is the only option then this device will not be an acceptable corporate use smart phone!!

This Seven Beta program....I do not see a whole lot of information at this site, even after registering. Is there a good place to find some more detail on this software?

You have to look in the forums to find info.

I've used Seven on my Windows Mobile phones for several years. They have a Workgroup edition, which is really a personal edition, and I think they have an Enterprise version as well. The Workgroup version requires you to install the "connector" application on a PC running Notes, and install a client app on your phone. The connector keeps mail, calendar, and tasks synced with your phone. The phone client works in the background, and you don't need to look at it once it's configured. I found it to be quite reliable, very fast, completely free, with no noticeable impact on battery life. It just works! Software updates happen maybe twice per year, and I've experienced only one weekend of downtime when they were having server issues.

Lotus Notes

CommonTime can do this for you. The mNotes Wireless (for individual users) or mSuite (for multi user corporates) both have support for Android. I know there are some fixes for Droid happening at the moment, but due to be finished sooner rather than later.

14 day free trial is available so worth taking a look to see if it is the right solution for you - CommonTime : Products : mNotes or CommonTime : Products : mSuite

CommonTime Lotus Notes solutions - Droid and Nexus 1

I am looking for suggestions on how to push corporate Lotus notes email/calendar/contacts to the new DROID.

Hey - just wanted to update at the CommonTime Lotus Notes email / PIM app has just been updated so it is compatible with the new Google Nexus 1 and the great Motorola Droid. commontime.com

This means CommonTime's mNotes and mSuite apps are now compatible with HTC Hero, Droid Eris, Motorola Cliq, Motorola Droid, Acer A1 and Nexus 1. :)

It's a little hard to understand how to setup, but Seven workgroup can be installed on a server or your personal machine and can do full 2-way push of Lotus Notes contacts, email, calendar to multiple phones & accounts....if you sign up for the beta its completely free.

There isn't much info on it because it is not intended to be a direct-to-consumer product. The resell & rebrand it as solutions for Verizon, ATT, etc. as well as for corporate users.

Commontime works pretty good on 2.1

We run Notes and BES, while IBM is supposedly coming up with a notes client for Android I couldn't wait.
I have been running Commontime for almost a month and it works very well. Under 1.6 I was getting an error that my messages weren't being sent - but they actually were.
The message has gone away with 2.1.
Calendar and email both work fine.

You can trial it for 30 days before purchase and my 30 days is up on the 15th and I am purchasing.

Good luck

SEVEN seems to work pretty well and it has the added benefit of not storing your mail and whatnot on their servers (a plus....biiiig plus).

However, I can't seem to get my calendar events synced :(
