Introducing VMware Boxer 4.12 for Android

The VMware AirWatch® team is excited to announce that VMware Boxer 4.12 for Android is publicly available.

What’s New in this App Version

  • BINXA-6441: External Recipient Warning
    • Admins and users can configure Boxer to highlight external email addresses in red. The admins and users can define what is an external address from the console via a key value pair and in the app from Settings > More mail settings > Mark addresses.
    • Boxer prompts you to confirm before sending to an external address. For admins this is another key value pair.
  • BINXA-5498: New Sync Status indicator
    • The sync status indicator is updated to display when your mailbox was last updated. It also displays the progress is there are any updates.
  • BINXA-6678: Message about Free/Busy availability not supported on certain servers
    • Some email servers do not support Free/Busy. If the server is not supported, Boxer displays a message when checking for the availability of attendees.
  • BINXA-6611: Go to free/busy attendees from main event view
    • Now it is easier to access Free/Busy from an event. Open an event and tap on the invitees instead of tapping Edit.
