Sun-kissed beaches like Cascais and Sagres offer enticements of a more hedonistic sort. Indeed, the dramatic, end-of-the-world cliffs, wild dune-covered beaches, protected coves and long, sandy islands of Portugal’s coastline have long enchanted visitors and locals alike. Meanwhile, the country’s capital, Lisbon, and its northern rival, Porto, are magical places for the wanderer, with riverside views, cobblestone streets and rattling trams framed by looming cathedrals.
However, Alas! amidst enjoying these beautiful places of Portugal, you can’t leave your professional life behind and keep yourselves always on toe with regards to checking mails, addressing issues, etc. But how will you do it? Here is the answer! Setting up your phone with Microsoft Exchange Server!
If you synchronize your phone with MS Exchange Server, accessing your mails on phone becomes easier. However, before synchronizing with Exchange mail hosting, you must check whether you are carrying a mobile device that can access the local wireless provider, the data plans offered by the provider, and the proper configuration of your device. Also being a non-native of Portugal, in order to avail the use of MS Exchange, you should first check with your home country’s local wireless providers whether they provide the roaming arrangements with the Portugal’s carriers. Also, you should check with the Portugal’s wireless providers about their various schemes and offers that they provide.
The three biggest wireless providers of Portugal are Optimus Telecomunicacoes S.A., TMN, and Vodafone Portugal. Another good news for the natives of Portugal is that they can access Exchange Email features in their own Portuguese language. The Hosted Microsoft Exchange is available in multiple language packs.
If mobile access is too expensive or not available, you can always access your exchange emails from a browser or in an internet caf using Outlook Web Access or Outlook Web App . If you are carrying a laptop, you can get WiFi or landline connections at Hotels, Internet cafes and Airports.
