Hi All,

I seem to be being asked more and more by certain, iphone happy, people who want to Sync their iphones and activesync phones with exchange, most likely due to the fact that i don't have a clue, this never seems to work correctly the fist time.

Is anyone able to provide a decent checklist ( or link to ) , to get and exchange  2003 server ready for this, ( Ie ports to open , stuff to enable etc )

Many Thanks in advance

Also, have been doing some reading and some people have suggested enabling IMAP on the server. Is this neccesarry as this sound a bit daft to me?

Many thanks

This has solved problem , due to directory access and authentication.

Cert + PW is not really a 2-factor authentication. Also, for all the reasons we all know, certificate/smartcard authentication has not been popular. Instead, OTP tokens have become the most popular authentication method for two-factor authentication because of its simplicity and low cost to implement and deploy.

Microsoft does not support OTP with Outlook Anywhere and ActiveSync. You will need a 3rd-party authentication server that supports Outlook Anywhere & ActiveSync with two-factor authentication. Currently, there is only one such product, Deepnet DualShield:
