Hi list-

I work for a company that would like to bring PDA's and SmartPhones
into our infrastructure for mobile access to email, calendaring, etc.  

Our requirements:  

Novell GroupWise 7 compatible
Supports Pocket PC and PalmOS (RIM and Symbian are nice-to-haves)
Calendar Integration
Push, not pull

Security Requirements:
Full encryption (server->device, on device, device->server)
Can force encryption on device, including removable cards
enforce password policy
remote reset of passwords
remote wipe and/or poison pill
enforce data transfer restrictions (ie, data on device cannot be copied
off of it via BT, IRDA, WiFi, Sync, or memory card).

Has anyone had any experience with this kind of product and, if so,
could you recommend one that you've liked?
