Abstract [en]

It is nowadays common that users have more than one computer. At the office, a stationary computer or possibly a laptop is used. When travelling, a Personal Digital Assistant is better suited for e-mail, address book, and scheduling. Probably the user also has an advanced mobile phone. A problem for many users is it has traditionally been quite complex to handle having multiple computers, since the support for mobile use has been insufficient.

We have looked into common scenarios for mobile users and given and overview of related products and technologies. Some of the traditional protocols for e-mail have been reviewed. We have listed problems with those and suggested improvements. Sendit has a proprietary protocol, which we have compared to traditional protocols.

This report gives an overview from the user’s point of view. From what we have seen, there are lots of upcoming technologies and solutions to assist mobile users. However, many problems still remain and need to be solved to facilitate the mobile user’s situation.
