"Hewlett-Packard Company today announced OpenMail Anywhere/WAP, a Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) interface for OpenMail 6, one of the leading business messaging/collaboration solutions for Linux and UNIX systems. OpenMail is the only major business messaging solution available through a WAP connection anytime, anywhere. This interface is part of OpenMail's Enhancement Pack 2, which is shipping now."

"Using OpenMail Anywhere/WAP, mobile OpenMail users can now access the same corporate e-mail that they use at their desktops, including Microsoft Outlook, Netscape Navigator, Lotus cc:Mail and Qualcomm Eudora. Users can access OpenMail's wireless Web service through WAP-enabled phones. Highly secure wireless access is ensured through OpenMail's integration with HP's Praesidium VirtualVault technology."

"OpenMail is the first truly secure business messaging from wireless networks, and now the first to add WAP capabilities," said Nigel Upton, general manager of HP's OpenMail business. "Just as we were the first to integrate SMS access and a choice of desktops."
