    Okay....have had my new Droid since last Friday and all I can say is wow! Unbelievable what all this thing does and how fast it does them...

    Already very happy with the onscreen landscape keyboard and have no need to even use the slider....

    got connected to my corporate exchange server this morning with absolutely no problems....currently syncing email, calendar, and contacts with email being "pushed"....no delay at all....

    only issues so far seem to be that I cannot accept/decline a meeting, and it cannot play a voicemail .wav file from my corporate phone system....

    the later seems to be a known issue...the issue with accepting a meeting request seems to be hit and miss....

    My fears of not being able to use this for daily business are gone....this thing rocks!

    Yup, email pushed instantly on mine. Just remember, subfolders are NOT push, you have to refresh them manually. I just go into my important ones and check them periodically.

    I'm going to go back on this statement I previously made, as this technically could be done via DynDNS and port forwarding on your router. So as long as you were the only one accessing your personal mailserver, and not using undue bandwidth; you'd be just fine.

    An Exchange license is pretty expensive, though.

    see email is stopping me from switching, problem I have with this route is what if you need to reply to that email? then its kind of a hassle instead of being able to just respond there are extra steps. Some ISP's wont let you set it up to reply from gmail, or forward to gmail.
    J,

    I've avoided this thread because I don't have to deal with an Exchange Server but might I suggest the way I have my e-mail accounts setup.

    Have your pop accounts polled via Gmail with labels added. Then create accounts using the E-mail app as well but do not set a poll time. This way Gmail will notify you an you can then go into the E-mail app when you want to reply via that pop account. Once you open an e-mail account it pulls your e-mail so you should be good to go.

    Hope this helps.

    -X

    That's what I've done and it seems to work well.

    The Droid does have push capabilities with Corporate Exchange. The catch is the Exchange server must have ActiveSync installed on it. I have my device set up on the exchange and I get my emails before my Outlook receives them. It also syncs my contacts and calander. You just have to set it correctly on the device to ensure it is working correctly.
