    "British mobile phone software maker Symbian has agreed to license synchronization software from long-time rival Microsoft in an effort to win more corporate customers, it said on Tuesday. How to master the popular information manager. Plus, great Outlook alternatives, and apps to expand the program.

    As a result, users of smartphones that run on Symbian software, over 20 million devices, will be able to wirelessly receive emails via network computers that run Microsoft's Exchange Server software. These servers are used mainly for Microsoft's Outlook email and calendar applications.

    Nokia (news - web sites) (NOK1V.HE), which sells most of the Symbian-based smartphones, last month signed a deal with Microsoft to license the same software, called ActiveSync, for use in its enterprise devices such as the Communicator.

    The collaboration is intriguing, because Symbian was set up by the world's biggest mobile phone makers in the late 1990s as a force against Microsoft, which handset makers believed was aiming to dominate the cell phone industry in the same way it had become the de facto operating system for personal computers.

    But six years on, Microsoft's market share in operating software for mobile phones has not crossed 1 percent. Meanwhile, corporate employees have to come to expect email on their mobile devices as it was pioneered by the Blackberry device, from Research In Motion (Toronto:RIM.TO - news).

    "Microsoft isn't a monolithic company. This is a deal we've done with their server division and is aimed to complete the portfolio of email solutions, so that people have the choice to receive emails whichever email system they use," said Symbian spokesman Peter Bancroft.

    Microsoft's Windows software for mobile devices is run from another division at the world's biggest software company. Symbian continues to support a wide range of other email synchronization protocols such as RIM's Blackberry Connect as well as the Open Mobile Alliance Data Synchronization protocol."
