Dear Experts,

I'm finding myself in the situation that a company wants to use their Mail For Exchange.
This company wants a Nokia E71 to Synchronise with the exchange server 2003 (wich is installed on a SBS2003 SP2 server)

The company allready has port 443 in use by a webshop, and uses port 444 to connect to the exchange server.

I set Use default port on no, and entered 444 in the box underneath that.

When i try to sychronise to the server it says its connected, but does nothing for 10-20 seconds, then i get system error.

When i test it with https://localhost:444/oma i get the popup asking for username and password,
I enter those credentials and then is says it cannot connect to the user box.

The event viewer shows the device connecting, and disconnecting, but does not provide an error code.

I'm testing this externaly, with UMTS on the phone, Testing if OMA worked, was done on the server)

I'm fresh out of ideas on how to test this issue, and got stuck.

Did any of u experience issues similiar to mine, or better yet, how can i troubleshoot this.

Kind Regards.

Create a test account and run the tests on the MS test site. See what it flags.

Dear Rajith,

I used the tool u linked, but that looks at port 443. can't this be changed to 444.

If i test it using 443 it gived a certificate error. And thats right because 443 links to other certificates. So it will never find the right certificate for the exchange server.

Kind regards.

I got it working on port 444.

The phone provider blocked port 444, so its obvious that it CAN work on different ports.
