MobileWare Personal 1.0

Work Without a Wire, or a Net

If you have a cellular phone, you can have e-mail-even without a server or central post office. MobileWare Personal 1.0 integrates into the Windows 95 Exchange client to give you e-mail via wireless connection. You can exchange e-mail with other users running MobileWare Personal 1.0; there's no need for a mail post office or LAN server.

Your wireless e-mail uses the same Inbox and Outbox as Win95 Exchange, and you manage your e-mail the same way. The program's checkpointing feature prevents data loss in the event of a transfer interruption. MobileWare Personal 1.0 confirms the sending and receipt

of each data packet. If connection is lost during transmission, it will reconnect the call automatically and begin sending exactly where it left off. When you're not connected, you can still compose e-mail offline. MobileWare stores the messages in your Outbox, and sends them when you connect again.

An Anchor for Adrift Workers

If you're a remote worker, you're probably familiar with notebook computer docking stations. But have you heard of a software docking station? SoftDock is a program that lets you access network files and applications even when disconnected from the network.

SoftDock works as a personal file server, and improves remote transmission performance. It replicates frequently accessed network files to your computer when it's docked to the network, and creates a personal file server.

After you undock with a mouse click, SoftDock provides transparent access to the replicated files. The program automatically synchronizes replicated files with the network when you redock.

SoftDock installs on the client side and will work with any network protocol.
