Hi
I am trying to setup activesync for a sony P1 - it is failing and I think it is because the server address I am putting in is wrong. Apparently it has to be a publicly accessible domain name.
How do I set this up?
I have OWA and vpn running but how do i publish the exchange server to the outside world?

I don't think it needs to be an actual name.  I'm sure the public IP address would work, too.  First thing, though, I assume your server has a public DNS name?  Otherwise you wouldn't be able to receive mail directly.  You should be able to use that name, as long as you have HTTP ports forwarded to the Exchange server by your router/firewall.
