Hi guys,
Is it possible to put ActiveSync on on front end server and OWA on another front end server? If so, how can I configure that? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

ActiveSync on a mobile device typically connects to a FrontEnd server.  Can you have more than one FE?  Yes.  How do you force a connection to one or the other?  By giving them unique public addresses associated with unique FQDNs (URLs).

Example:
OWA server = http://email.yourdomain.com  ipaddr = x.x.x.x
ActiveSync server = http://mobilemail.yourdomain.com  ipaddr = y.y.y.y

If you are using HTTPS, you'll need separate certificates for the two URLs.

I have 4 FE servers. Currently 1 FE servers hold OWA, ActiveSync,POP with 1 certificate. I was told to move the OWA to one FE and ActiveSync to another FE by using the same certificate? Is it possible to do that? Thanks

A certificate associates a URL with an IP address.  When your users connect to ActiveSync, don't your mobile devices use a public URL? 

Have I misinterpreted your question?

The users have been using the same certificate for owa and activesync. Right now for testing purpose, I do the following:

Original Server with OWA and ActiveSync =

https://mydomain.com/exchange (SSL Certificate)

Testing Servers

Server 1 OWA=https://206.xxx.xxx.140/exchange
Server 2 ActiveSync= https://206.xxx.xxx.141/

If I remove the original server and transfer the SSL certicate to server1 and server, will that work on both servers? like you mentioned, one public address only mapped to one domain. And I want both owa and activesyn to be mapped to the same url. That will be no possible right unless I have two different url to map to two different public addresses right?

Correct - it's like telling the Post Office that you want to use a single street address, but if a letter comes from Alice you want it to go to the actual address, and if it comes from Bob you want it to go to a building two streets over.
