New mail messages from the IBM Traveler service arrive on your device automatically and can trigger a notification event, such as a tone or a device vibration. Updates made on the device, such as sending a new mail message or changing a calendar entry, sync with the server as soon as a network connection is available.
IBM Traveler provides a simple, easy-to-use interface with a minimal number of configuration settings. You can customize how much data is synced with the device to optimize the use of device memory.
Mobile handheld device users only must install the client software depending on the device, and direct the device to the service. The device automatically registers with the server and syncing begins immediately for the device.
The primary method for IBM Traveler clients communicating with the IBM SmartCloud Traveler service is through an over-the-air communication channel. Examples include WiFi or your mobile device's carrier network.
