SmarterMail with Exchange Web Services

The email solutions we provide at InteractiveWebs is capable of using a more advanced connection technology than POP3 and IMAP. Known as Exchange Web Services, the technology is a covenant and robust way of connecting to the mail servers.

The Idea

All your email, calendars, contacts, and notes will reside on our mail servers. Your devices (computers, laptops, iPhones, and iPads) will link to our servers. This way, every device will see the same information at all times. If you view a message on one device, then you can see that message “as viewed” on all your other devices.



We have elected to use the latest technology for this service. At this time the only software that connect to Exchange Web Services are:

Mac Mail – Snow Leopard, Lion and later

Outlook 2011 -  Mac and later

Outlook 2012 – Windows and later


How to setup Exchange Web Services Email

Follow these steps to set up Apple Mail to sync with Exchange Web Services

  1. On your Mac, open System Preferences.
  2. Click Mail, Contacts & Calendars.
  3. Click Microsoft Exchange.
  4. Complete the display name, full email address and password fields.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Type the root URL to your webmail.
  7. Click Next.
  8. An account summary screen will display. Click Continue.
  9. Click Add Account.

Apple Mail is now configured to sync with InteractiveWebs SmarterMail. Depending on how much data there is to synchronize, the first sync may take a few minutes.


iPhone and iPad Touch

The iPhone and iPad still use the IMAP connections to the mail server.

  1. On the iPhone, tap Settings.
  2. Tap Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
  3. Tap Add Account.
  4. Tap Other.
  5. Tap Add Mail Account.
  6. Complete the Name, Address (email address), Password and Description fields.
  7. Click Next.

    • Username is your full email address
    • Password as provided
  11. Tap Next.

    • Tap Save.

  26. Tap your email address to go back.
  27. Tap Mail to go back.
  28. Tap the Home button.
  29. Tap the Mail App to check your configuration.



Push Notifications

With the phone and iPad, it is possible to use a service that pushes email messages to your phone, rather than your phone being set to constantly run off and check for new messages. This saves on battery life, saves on data used on your monthly plan and ensures your email messages always arrive on time.

If it is important to you to have email messages when they arrive, then this service is what you need. Known as Active Sync, it can be enabled by us with a a small additional cost for each account. $5 per month.

Larger Mail Accounts

Because your email remains on our servers, it means that your accounts will grow and grow in size. This takes up resources on our mail servers (which is fine) but if you like to keep past history of mail sent, and all your arriving email messages, then you will need to extend the storage space of your mail account on our servers.

This can be done easily with a small monthly fee per account. $15 per month.

iWebs News–Now available on the iPhone and iPad

imageToday marks a big day for us at InteractiveWebs. We have had approved and released our version 2.0 update to our popular iPhone app “iWebs News”.

What’s New

The App has been totally rewritten by us, and now is released as a native Xcode iPad & iPhone app in one.

So if you have an iPad, and have previously seen our iWebs News app, then please check out the app on your iPad. It is a terrific experience.

Why is it a Big Deal for us?

Much of our focus over the last 8 months has been on enabling our team to produce rapid iPhone and iPad apps. In order to do this, we felt it necessary to develop a framework that we have called “Mushroom”.

The release of this 2.0 update for iWebs News App marks the first release of any App by us that is built entirely on our new Mushroom Framework.

Naturally we are pleased that apple process approved the app first time around, as this means that all the hard work in testing and resolving any issues paid off.

What does it mean for us?

Actually it means quite a bit! Now we have the rapid deployment framework, that is a “Universal App” running on both iPhone and iPad, we are able to use and deploy the app on behalf of our customers and clients.

Because all of the code is ours, we can take the future development in any direction we like. We are really very excited to see the result, and see how well it performs.


Would you like your own iPhone / iPad App?
