Plus, how about the remote erasing feature that allows stolen or lost devices to be remotely erased to prevent information theft.
That being said, it seems that MS's solution is more well thought out for the needs of the corporation with its integration and security features. Besides, for any company using exchange server, the MS solution is a no-brainer.
Yeah, how about it. Maybe take a look at mSafe from MotionApps.
(no, I am not affiliated with them, and haven't even tried it on my Treo yet)

Suuuure. An integrated all-Microsoft solution Vs. a 3rd party app from a minor league developer. Which option do you think will appeal to most companies?
When the Palm rep was demoing mSafe at the recent DevCon, I kept wondering "Why the he11 isn't this a standard part of the Treo's security system?" Palm needs to start acting like a company that's prepared to COMPETE with Microsoft, feature for feature. Expecting 3rd party developers to kludge together fixes to Palm's deficient designs and then expecting users to pay extra money for the "fixes" is truly insane.

I agree completely with your observations of Microsofts complete solution verses Palm's hobbled together incomplete disjointed excuses.
The earlier post from Oliver with the link reference to the Remote Treo disabler was a good find. But the general public sure should not have to be as knowledgable as Oliver. It should be a no brain to everyone.

Back to your caves trolls. Face it, the PPC so called 'push' (with a bit of pull) email is just blowing smoke.
Remember, its FREE.
If PPC or Palm actually got push email right, do you think this will actually impact on RIM's market share? I think people who want a glorified pager will still go for Blackberry. Too many other factors involved with PDA purchase.
As for me, I'm happy with Versamail or whatever does the job while I'm on the go - I don't need immediate notification.
It will be a bottom up solution, but in the end it will only be the less competent who will have "pure-play" e-mail solutions, everyone else will have a more fully features WM device.
