Reduce Cost on Enterprise Mobile Devices Synchronization with Email Server by Using Automated Summarization Option

Use of mobile devices like smart phone and PDAs for retrieving email, memo and instant messages can be supported via synchronization with mail servers. Main inhibitors in email synchronization include cost of air time and constraints on mobile device resources when dealing with large amounts of email. By adding automated summarization utility into the mobile device synchronization system, the amount of data to be transmitted will be greatly reduced, and thereby reduce the cost of air time and the probability of hitting low memory problem on the device side.
