Just to be clear. You want your pocket pc to send mail through your exchange server?

Yes, I can recieve email on my pocket pc (wince v3) but I cannot send emails, this is done through RAS and our exchange server, I think I might have the wrong SMTP address set in the ppc.
Thai: how do I open port 143?

IMAP4 is required on the exchange server to send and recieve emails from a ppc I believe. But then again, how would I know, I am actually quite ignorant when it comes to Exchange.

You will need to open port 143 from your router in case the router locked that port.

Some routers just open some ports that will be used for Exchange server:
port 110 (POP3), 25 (SMTP), 80 (OWA), 443 (SSL) ,,,,...

PS: On ppc, create a new connection and use IMAP4 as the services if you dial your ISP.  If you connect to your RAS, you can use POP3 instead because you will access your Exchange server locally.

I tried using POP3 as I am using RAS, but the ppc tells me " you can recieve messages but not send them. Could not find smtp server."
I am putting my email in as the smtp , if im am incorrect here what should it be and how can I find out?.
Thanks.

You need to put your IP address of your exchange server (or computer name) as SMTP not your email address.

Is your RAS in the same subnet as Exchange server?  How you assign the IP address to client after it connect to RAS and receive the IP from DHCP server?... I wonder if your ppc can talk to Exchange server after you connected to RAS.

Yes I use dhcp. Ras authenticates ok, it's exchange which is the problem.

After you connect to RAS.  Check on RAS Admin to see what IP address that RAS assigns to your ppc.  Go to Exchange server and try to ping that IP address... I wonder if your ppc IP is in the same subnet as Exchange server or can talk to EX.

Yes I can ping the ppc from exchange server and they are both on the same subnet. Very odd this one.
