  • I manage a company of 80 users on Kerio (IMAP).
  • We are 90% Mac OSX (including myself)
  • 20 of them now have iPhones and would like push enabled.

I can think of about five paths to take here, but would appreciate any advice you all can lend. Please bear in mind that I am on a Mac and running the latest and greatest in Kerio Mailserver.

Here are my goals:
  1. Push their email via ActiveSync to their iPhones (I have done this - works wonderfully!)
  2. Ability for me to maintain a company directory of Contacts that gets pushed to all iPhones, is only writable by me and contains photos of each contact.

So #2 is the tough one. How does a person admin a company list with pictures of each contact from a Mac? What is the best way to push that data to their iPhones?

Any help would be much appreciated!

The iPhone synchronizes photos with KMS, however the only client program that works with photos in contacts is Outlook. In other words, you would have to manage photos of your public contacts through Outlook.

I just noticed you're right. My Windows Mobile phone used to grab pictures from my Address Book on my Mac via Activesync to the server, but the iPhone 2.0 doesn't grab them.

Can you fix that? Very Happy
