How to check email on an Iphone with SBS 2003

Hi and thanks in advance for any help.
I am after some general advice on the best way to enable me to view my work emails away from work on an Iphone. I have a server running sbs 2003 and i retrieve my email from my host using the pop3 wizard included in SBS. I view email at work using outlook 2003. I also have a fixed IP.

I am the only person who needs to view my email.

Any advice will be greatfully recieved.

Kind regards

Rob

Or quick and dirty (but not as good) IMAP:

I'd recommend running as secure with certificate if you do go down this route, but it is optional.

Hi shauncroucher,

Thank you for your quick response.

I will go down the Activesync route if you think that is the better way.
So do i need to get a qualified domain name for my server? And if so any info how i go about this?

Cheers

You will need a 'A' record yes. Contact your DNS providers and ask them to add an 'A' record pointing to your static IP address. mail.yourdomain.com or something like that.

Then I would personally get a Trusted SSL cert but you can use none and send in clear text (security risk) or create your own (more work, harder to maintain).

All the details should be in the link I sent you

Would this make email come direct to my server and not my current host?

No, not unless you change the MX record. Just creating an 'A' record will not affect mail destination, only editing the MX will do that.
