Sprint serves up access to Sun software

Sprint has begun offering to outsource e-mail and calendar functions using Sun Microsystems' servers and its iPlanet software, the companies said Thursday. The services will be offered at Sprint's Dallas-Fort Worth data center, which opened Friday. Sprint will provide its customers with help-desk support as part of the offering. Sun has been concentrating for years on service-provider customers such as Sprint but recently has shifted its focus to large corporate customers that haven't been hit as hard by the current economic downturn.
