"The Product works on a Real Time Synchronization between linked mail server and customer‘s Handheld (Push Technology)," said a company spokesperson, though he refused to answer all questions relating to Airtel‘s Post Paid subscriber base, projected revenue growth through this technology or investment made for this.


"Airtel Easy Mail is a hassle-free solution targeted at the Enterprise Users to check their corporate mails while they are on the move," the company claimed.

The service is Push-based mail where Airtel customers using a range of Symbian and Windows enabled mobile devices with GPRS connectivity can enjoy the service.

It enables the mail to arrive on the mobile device just as it appears on the mail server and also supports most popular attachment types like Word, PDF, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.
