Open-Xchange, which makes an e-mail and document server, has added support for some Apple applications due to increased demand, the company said Tuesday.

Open-Xchange announced a beta version of its iSync connector OXtender for Mac OS X. The connector integrates Apple applications such as Mail, iCal and Address Book with version 6 of their server, according to Open-Xchange.

Apple computers are increasingly popular at home and in the office, which prompted the company to add support, according to Rafael Laguna, Open-Xchange's CEO.

OXtender for Mac OS X can synchronize contacts between Open-Xchange and the Apple Address Book, as well as appointments and tasks with iCal. Open-Xchange's document manager, InfoStore, can also be linked Apple Finder using WebDAV.

Open-Xchange plans to eventually add automatic configuration of Apple's Mail Client for access to Open-Xchange's Mail Services, but that feature isn't in the current beta.

The connector also adds synchronization support for iPhones that are connected to a Mac. Users of MobileMe will get new e-mail, calendar and contact entries pushed directly to their iPhone.

Other mobile devices can also get access to, for example, e-mail via a Mac, as long as they support iSync.

The beta can be downloaded from the Open-Xchange Web site.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
