ActiveSync is able to negotiate changes and updates protocol uses a technology that is often referred to as "Push".

The "push" technology means that changes that are made on the mobile device are synchronized with Signetique Business Email without requiring polling.

You will need ActiveSync if you would like your emails in your mobile device, calendar, contacts synced to the Signetique Business Email's server.
