Syncing Mobile Devices - 26.Mar.2009 3:46:32 AM

My organization will be moving from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2007 (via ex 2003) very soon. Presently, we use Verizon's Wireless Sync to sync Outlook with any Verizon smart phone. Essentially, it works via a PC with Outlook installed, mail is sent to Nokia's Intellisync servers which then pushes it to the devices.

Does Ex 2007 have the native ability to push email and PIM info?  Is another component (like a BES) necessary? Does ActiveSync do this? I associate ActiveSync with a local 'PC to mobile device via cable' operation. Will it work with Palm devices or only Windows Mobile devices? Is it 'ready for prime time' or is it still "maturing" like so many applications from M$?

I realize these questions sound like theyre coming from one of the apes at the beginning of  "2001 A Space Odyssey", hooting and shaking a bone at the sky, but its been NT4 and Ex 5.5 for me for a long time and the organization is just now entering the 21st century.

Thank you very much.  

Now, where did I put that banana...

ActiveSync works with any device that has support for it either through ActiveSync in the device ( lWindows Mobile, iPhone) or through various third party apps like Roadsync (Palm, Symbian) and others. You can sync either with direct push directly to the device or by connecting it to a computer with ActiveSync installed.  You have to check with the manufacturer of the device if and how it  is compatible with Exchange  2007.

Thanks for your response. All mobile device sync will be wireless. Other than wading through manufacturer's sites, is there a definitive site or overview resource with things like device compatibility, setup and administration etc for Exchange 2007?

Hi guys

could someone assist me with synching my mobile device with my exchange server?  my device is a palm treo pro.  i am using exchange server 2007.  i'm looking to recieve my emails on my mobile device, so i need evertything to sync...ie email, calendar, contacts etc.

i've entered all the settings into my mobile device ie email address, password, domain, OWA URL, but i continually recieve the message 'error synchronising'.

is there something i need to do on the exchange server, ie tick a checkbox, enable outlook anywhere, set up firewall rules, certificates?

Can you give us some more details. What exact settings are you putting in on the device? What have you done server side? Is everything running on the default?
