While iPhones can be used for email, for now, many businesses don’t plan to sync them with internal email systems that use technology from BlackBerry maker Research In Motion Ltd., Microsoft Corp和摩托罗拉公司旗下的Good TechnologyThat means many iPhone users won’t be able to directly send and receive messages through their corporate email systems, although they may be able to forward their work emails through a third-party service like AOL or Yahoo Mail.

这个建议并不是为了让企业更容易用户; this is about making it easier for corporate IT departments that have chained themselves to Exchange.
但是先生Saxton-Getty says he is worried that “rogue” employees may figure out ways to route their corporate emails to their iPhone. “I am getting a lot of push back, and people saying they are just going to go get it on their own,” he says, adding that an employee asks him about the iPhone and whether the company will support it about every hour.
