I currently have Outlook 2003 SP2 installed on a Windows Server 2003 SP2 at home. I currently use Outlook Web Access and access it via the URL http://
Now, I have just installed 'RoadSync' on my Nokia N95 (after having problems getting MailForExchange to work) but have run into a problem connecting to my Exchange server. All the time I'm within range of my Wireless Network at home, if I specify the server as the full .local domain name (<serverName>.<domainName>
.local) it connects and sync's with my exchange server without a problem. As soon as I specify the server name as <MyHomeServer.co.uk>/excha
nge, it won't connect or sync. I referred to the RoadSync documentation which states that http://
and / should be EXCLUDED from the server name field, and should be specified like mail.mydomain.com. I can't specify any such address/name for my exchange server though as it's a virtual directory, hence /exchange.
I have bought a new domain and updated the DNS to point to my Exchange servers IP Address. I created a new website in IIS on the server, updated the host header info so it handled any requests for exchange.myNewDomain.co.uk
and set it to redirect to http://
/ but this still didn't resolve the RoadSync issue, so I'm thinking I can't use a server address that redirects to another address? This brings me back to my question, that is, how do I configure my server to have Exchange as the root website for this server, so when exchange.myNewDomain.co.uk
is requested, it points to my servers IP and I don't need any redirects or virtual directories in order for Outlook Web Access to be returned. (I don't have any other sites I need to worry about on this server).
If anyone could shed any light I'd be grateful.
