TELUS and Visto Corporation today announced the availability of Business Inbox, powered by Visto MobileTM, a secure wireless e-mail service that offers mobile professionals instantaneous access to critical corporate information from their mobile devices.

“TELUS continues to expand its e-mail services portfolio with sophisticated wireless applications such as Business Inbox, allowing business users of all kinds to stay connected and visible, anytime, anywhere,” said Robert Blumenthal, TELUS senior vice president of products and services. “Available for clients ranging from individual users up to national enterprise clients, Business Inbox lets professionals experience first-hand the significant productivity gains possible with mobile e-mail.”

TELUS clients can experience fully synchronised, real-time e-mail, calendar and contacts using one of the following options:
