iPhone was initially released in the market as a general consumer device but the majority of those who purchased the unit were surprisingly business people belonging to the corporate world. The amazing factors that made it so appealing to many is its easy to use, its impressive interface, and advanced integration with its industry partners in the business circle.
However, the largest setback it faces as one of the major complaints of its users is their inaccessibility to their business emails. Since, these mails are traditionally known to be running on disimilar systems, along with the fact that majority of corporate mails are protected by a firewall, the corporate email becomes impossible for the iPhone to reach and access.
One solution to this iPhone email problem is to have your received mails of your corporate mail to be forwarded to your personal email. Neverheless, there could still be some problems that may arise. If you happen to face the need of replying to any of these business mails, your address would reflect that of your personal email. The best thing you can do is just add your corporate email address in your recipients' list. Another better answer to this problem is to get your company's IT experts and administrators to add up iPhone email to their supported list of smartphones. You can suggest to search the online market for corporate email servers that can effectively integrate iPhone email to your company's system.
