Apple iPhone owners with IBM Lotus Notes corporate e-mail accounts now have a new way to access their mail, calendars and contacts via iPhone thanks to a free application that’s now available in Apple’s App Store, called Lotus iNotes ultralite.
Security minded users and administrators also have the option of using IBM’s Lotus Mobile Connect virtual private network (VPN) software along with Lotus iNotes ultralite, IBM says.
The application is available for free download to anyone with a Lotus Notes software license, though admins need to install IBM Lotus Domino Web Access 8.0.2 for the application to function correctly, according to CNET.com.
IBM and Apple are reportedly in talks to bring the Lotus Notes Traveler software, which can securely bring Notes mail to Windows Mobile devices via Domino, to the iPhone, though no official announcement has been made as of yet.
