iphone exchange 2003

Hey gang-
One of my users had to get the iphone, so here we go....

My exchange server has ssl and OWA working properly. From my firewall I have forwarded TCP port 143 to my exchange server. On exchange I started the imap service, then went into exchange system manager and started imap. Anything else here to configure?

On the iphone, i went through the mail settings. I'm using mail.mydomain.com for incoming mail server and outgoing mail server. Also set the iphone to use SSL for incoming and outgoing.


-------Error Message on iphone-----------

Cannot Get Mail
The connection to the server "mail.mydomain.com" failed.

-----------------------------------------------------------


What should I check?


Thanks in advance

I should add that I did checkmark in ESM-->administrative groups-->first administrative groups --> servers -->exchange server-->protocols-->imap4 --> default imap4 virtual server -->properties--> access tab -->authentication -->requires ssl/tls encryption

Also,
ESM-->administrative groups-->first administrative groups --> servers -->exchange server-->protocols-->imap4 --> default imap4 virtual server -->properties--> calandering --> use SSL connections

ssl and IMAP?
You will need to install ssl for the IMAP virtual server.
Also,
Does mail.mydomain.com public IP address point to the server where the default imap virtual server is running? For example, IMAP does not use OWA virtual directories or the ssl cert installed for owa.

ESM
server name
protocols
properties of default imap virtual server
access tab
certificate button

Maybe you could get it working without ssl the add the cert?

I too am having a similar issue. The IMAP service is running and the IMAP Virtual Server is running. The problem is knowing which certificate to buy how to install it on the server? I think I can figure out the port forwarding. I am just wondering if the outgoing and incoming mail server can be the same as the address for OWA, or do I have to set up another address for that? Thanks for any Input!!!!!

address is specific to a box. For example, a public address redirects to a server inside. If the IMAP virtual server and the OWA virtual directories are on the same box then you would use the same address.

If you have a cert for OWA, you can use that cert for IMAP. Export it and import it to IMAP. But, if you do this the domain name for IMAP and OWA must match and IMAP and OWA must run on the same box.

The ssl port for IMAP is 993

Ah, ok. Yesterday i did see a bunch of port 993 getting blocked by my firewall, and subsequently wondering if that had something to do with it. I'll try to import my SSL cert to imap and forward port 993 to my exchange. Makes sense now. I'm going to give this a try this morning.

<<Does mail.mydomain.com public IP address point to the server where the default imap virtual server is running?
Yes. We only have 1 exchange server.
