Connect a smartphone to exchange remotely

We have a couple of TYTN II Smartphones running Windows Mobile 6.
At the ofice we have an SBS2003 server with Exchange 2003 SP2 with Remote Access, Remote Web Access and Internet and Mobile User enabled in Active Directory for these and a number of other users.
OWA works great for the remote PCs and laptops as does VPN. However although the TYTN II can access yahoo and hotmail sites perfectly it doesn't read the OWA page properly.

Is there a way of connecting the Windows Mobile version of Outlook directly to the exchange server across a 3G internet connection. By using the phone as a modem access can be gained to OWA using a laptop (which is fine) but it would be really useful having proper the Outlook programme running on the phone.

Thanks
Nel

If you configure the phone in ActiveSync to connect to the server (instead of syncing the Inbox, etc. with the Outlook mailbox), that should meet your needs. You may need to do some configuration on the server to enable this. I was a feature of SP2 for Exchange 2003. The following site appears to have some good info on configuring this:

Actually the SBS-specific instructions for Windows Mobile configurations would be found here:  http://sbsurl.com/mobile

There should be no problem at all synching Mobile Outlook with your SBS's Exchange Server

Thanks TechSoEasy

A brief glance at the 50 or so pages tells me this will do the trick

Well, it's only 50 pages when you download the Word Document... the web version is a single (long) page.  :-)

And since it includes over 40 images/screen shots, it's mostly pictures anyhow!
