I have a Samsung I600, I would like to connect to my corp email.  I connect using - http://servername/oma
A get a user name and password but it doesnt connect using it.  It does work when I use http://servername/exchange however I cant use this because of the browser on the phone.  If I am suppose to connect using Domain/username this causes a problem because the phone does not have a / (forward slash)  Am I missing something?

OMA Troubleshooting guide: http://www.cewindows.net/faqs/activesync/mis.htm#MIS%20-%20Mobile%20Information%20Server 

first, you can test OMA by just using IE, no need to use the phone yet until you verify it works.

If you have a Motorola MPx200 or a Samsung i600 running the Microsoft Smartphone 2002 operating system, here is what you must do in order to make it synchronize over the air to your Exchange 2003 server.

First, install a certificate in IIS from a root certificate authority like Verisign or install certificate services to issue one to yourself. (If you are doing this remotely, keep in mind you'll probably need the CD for Windows 2003 Server if installing certificate services.)

Second, go into the virtual webserver properties for the site that contains the OMA and OWA components. Click the Directory Secruity tab and enable SSL encryption.

Third, if you have used a self-issued certificate you must use the certchk.exe utility to disable certificate checking on your Smartphone. To do this you must have the phone cradled and have a live ActiveSync connection. You simply unzip the program and type the following at a command prompt:

>certchk off

You will know you have not done the certificate correctly if the Smartphone is giving you an INTERNET_29 error.

And lastly, the only thing that might mess you up on making this work is figuring out what to type into the Server ActiveSync properties screen on the Smartphone.

If Exchange is called 'server' on the LAN and 'server.company.com' from the Internet, you need to put 'server.company.com' in the server field.

If fully qualified domain is called 'company.local' you need to put 'company' in the domain field.
