If the provisioning XML file is in a signed .cab or .cpf file, it can be pulled OTA by the device in response to an e-mail message.

Security roles can impact the configuration result. For information on role-based access control, see OMA Client Provisioning Security Best Practices.

The following illustration shows a graphical view of how the provisioning XML is pulled to the device by using e-mail.

To deliver a provisioning XML file

  1. Put the .cab or .cpf file that contains the provisioning XML file on a Web site from which the user can download the file.

  2. To alert the user that an update is available, send an e-mail message that contains a link to the Web site.

  3. When the user clicks on the link in the e-mail, Internet Explorer Mobile opens the Web page that contains the .cab or .cpf file that has the provisioning XML file.

  4. The user downloads the file from the Web site.

    When the download is complete, the device installs the provisioning .cab file. The device is configured.
