Introduction to Z-Push 2.0:New features & improved mobile management options


Z-Push is an open-source ActiveSync implementation that synchronizes email, contacts, calendar and tasks in Zarafa. Zarafa cooperates with several other vendors on this dominant open-source ActiveSync compatibility platform. The platform has enabled Zarafa to set the standard on open-source ActiveSync compatibility. As a result, customers get better software thanks to our use of early adopters’ feedback on new business handhelds.

All devices using the ActiveSync standard are compatible, including iPhones, Android OS phones, Windows Mobile smart phones, Palm Treos and more. Zarafa supports the following key features:

  • over-the-air synchronization of mail, address book and calendar
  • use of the native device’s UI, no additional mail client download required
  • search messages, manage all folders
  • open / view attachments
  • manage calendar events; accept / decline meetings
  • easy device configuration (just enter the Zarafa server address and your user name), including remote mobile device management.

Please check the Z-Push website for more information and downloads.


BlackBerry devices are integrated over by using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) or BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BES Express). The MAPI compatibility enables Zarafa to emulate Exchange behaviour and therefore be fully compatible with the BlackBerry.
