Outlook Web Access Error on HTC Touch Pro 2 (Opera Mobile 9.5)
Posted on 2009-06-29
We've recently bought 2x HTC Touch Pro 2's as company PDA's for myself and the sales director. The handsets themselves are brilliant and with a little customisation work just the way I need them to.
I only have one issue with it, when I try to visit our Outlook Web Access web page from Opera, I get a simple error message on-screen:
This used to happen on Pocket Internet Explorer on my old HTC Touch and Touch Diamond but never in Opera.
On initial investigation, I can't find much supporting this error. The only criteria I have to start troubleshooting is:
Connects to OWA absolutely fine over activesync (USB) or Company Wi-Fi. However, when I try in on my home Wi-Fi or on 3G, I get this error.
It makes me think there is some kind of authentication going on behind the scenes which I can't see.
I didnt have this problem on my Touch Diamond, or indeed on Opera ever before.
Is there a configuration change or changes I can make to tone down the security or simila just to allow access to OWA.
I'm upgrading to Exchange 2007 in 6-12 months, but for now I've got to put up with downloading the messages through Outlook Mobile, but cannot send through it so we have to use OWA.
A bit backwards I agree, but we only have to bare with it for a few more months.
Any comments are greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
