Current System Status:

We have a network with three servers running (File&Print, Exchange Email 2003, Terminal Remote Server).  All servers are in a domain and we service about 30 workstations.  We are also running Blackberry Enterprise Server on the Exchange box with about 10 users in the network using BB devices to sync their office email, calendar and contacts.

Problem:

One user recently purchased a Apple IPhone 3G and wants to use it to sync his exchange data on the network.  I have never setup a Apple IPhone and I have been trying to do research on the setup required to do so on a Exchange environment.  The information is lacking at best.  I know I have to setup MS Active Sync on the Exchange server (Which I have Never Done) along with SSL (Which I have also Never Done).  I went to MS site to try to find and download Active Sync for Exchange but their are many variations of the product I am nervous about just loading anything.  This server is very important for network and business operations here and I am nervous about loading something I am not fimilar with.  I am looking for a little hand holding here, or somewhere to get step by step instructions on how to load this and set it up.

Hopefully someone else has gone through this already and can help me out.

Thanks Guys.

Active Sync should be enabled already on your exchange server.  Open up ESM and go to Global Settings | Mobile Services. Right click Mobile Services and go to properties and make sure the boxes are checked.

In order to enable SSL support, you will need to make sure Certificate services is installed as a windows component.
