Mail For Exchange Goes 2.1

MfE AppMy current favorite way to get my email and contacts synced to my mobile phone has gotten a software update recently. The only new feature in this release is the fact the Company Directory function can be downloaded as a separate SIS file. This is useful for folks that need to be able to look up corporate phone numbers, but don’t want the overhead of a full Mail for Exchange installation.

There are, of course, a number of bugfixes in the release. Nothing earth shattering that I can tell so far, though if you are sporting a Nokia N81 or an 8GB N95, you’re now supported. I simply loaded it over my existing 2.0 installation on my Nokia E61i and off I went, doing a Full Resync for good luck. The release notes state this isn’t necessary for upgrades from 2.0, but it is necessary if you are upgrading from an earlier release.

I find the easiest way to download Mail for Exchange from my mobile handset is via Catalogs or Download!, depending on the handset, though you can also go to http://businesssoftware.nokia.com/mfe if the application doesn’t show up there for some reason.
