Thin Clients, VDI and Linux integration from the front lines.... Raw and sometimes unedited notes based on my experiences with VMware, Thin Clients, Linux etc.

Thanks to Gears at CoolSmartPhone, I've worked through the details of their post and it does exactly what it says on the tin.

So, if like me you have issues with the infrastructure and/or security concerns that are stopping you from deploying this at your office, then try this as an alternative by having your emails forwarded. It's not ideal, but it is a guarenteed way of being able to demonstrate to your colleagues how good MS Push Email is and how very much like the Blackberry Service it is in reality and getting the all important "buy-in".

Just watch the managers faces when you can demonstrate this, and then explain how it works, they'll be on the IT Admin's case before very long and helping you get things in motion.

One thing to be mindful of though is that it *appears* as if the Scheduling for ActiveSync is taken from the time of the Server - NOT the client? (I'd be grateful if someone else could confirm or deny?) and this service would appear to be based in the US - so keep an eye out for that?  

Fantastic, Thanks Gears.
UPDATE - A mate of mine Dave tried this and had it working in 35 minutes, the hardest part was typing in the Phone!
