    Default Opening .exe files with Safari

    My company uses a web-based email tool which looks something like this:

    http://....../eadmin.exe

    Unfortunately we can't use a pop server to check it with an email tool. The only way is through a browser, but Safari won't open .exe files.

    Any idea how to get around this problem?

    Thanks

    Not a chance. Exe isn't web based tool. You need windows for that. Would never under any circumstances work on the iPhone.

    Please do flame me if i'm wrong

    Unfortunately, your company's web-based email tool is a pile of crap, and is Windows-only. Any email system worth its salt is going to support a standard that's been around for years - like IMAP or POP. (For the record, Exchange isn't a standard - its another crappy proprietary format designed to lock you to one vendor)

    My guess is that it does. So find out what the email server's IMAP or POP details are, and plug that in to the iPhone. You can use the native email client on the iPhone then.

    it's not "windows only", it's a webserver running a cgi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_..._Interface):-/

    Trust me, I already knew that my company's email tool is a pile of crap. But there's nothing I can do about it. If the tool would support IMAP or POP I wouldn't even write this post.

    Now, is there another alternative to Safari?
