Fairly certain you need to be in Native mode for direct push.

Are you sure that you are on Exchange 2003 SP2?
Are you looking at ESM on the server itself, or from another machine? If you are using it from another machine, has that machine been updated with SP2 as well?

That wasn't what I asked.
Are you using ESM on the server itself? The option isn't available if SP2 isn't installed, or the management component is not there. It is not reliant on the status of the Exchange org.

If you are sure that Service Pack 2 is installed, I would suggest reinstalling it.

I am looking at ESM from Windows XP SP2 machine. The ESM version on this machine is 6.5.6944 and I don't see the Enable Direct Push over HTTP(S)) option in Mobile Services Properties.

On the Exchange Server:
The ESM version is 6.5.7638.0 and I can see Enable Direct Push over HTTP(S)) option in Mobile Services Properties.

Do you know why I don't see this option on Windows XP SP2 machine. Does this has to do with different ESM version?

Thanks,

Yes. Run service pack 2 for Exchange on your XP machine and the option will be visible. (build 6.5.6944 is Exchange 2003 - no service packs)

All machines with the Exchange tools installed should be treated as full Exchange servers. When you update your Exchange server with a service pack, all other machines should also be updated. It would appear that you haven't done that.

Although best practises is not to have the Exchange management tools installed on your workstation either.
