You can use ActiveSync feature in Exchange Environment, where it gives MS outlook feature to use mailflow.
To configure ActiveSync on Exchange server 2003, please follow this article:-

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_1798-Exchange-2003-Activesync-Connection-Problems-FAQ.html

Hope this helps!

And if you are using Exchange 2007 or 2010, then you can directly configure ActiveSync on your mobile devices, but make sure that you have External 3rd Party certificate. If you have an Internal certificate then you have to install the certificate on the Mobile devices.

Please check out and revert back if you have query.

Thanks,
Mohammed

Hi,

Refer this article to configure the Exchange Active Sync on the Windows Mobile Phone:
http://blogs.blackmarble.co.uk/blogs/rhepworth/archive/2008/08/01/configuring-activesync-on-windows-mobile-for-exchange-push.aspx

Before that perfomr a ActiveSync test at https://www.testexchangeconnectivity.com/#&&/wEXAQUBcwUBMWYtMGKceuP+KuCo6CH9bE4aK/3U

Use Manulay Settings option.

Hope this helps,
Shree

Are you using the SBS Self Sign Certificate, or do you have a 3rd party trusted certificate?

how to see whether it is self sign cert or 3rd party cert..

Cris HannaCommented:
Are you the Administrator of the SBS Server?  If so you should know which you used when you set it up...if you are not...you should ask the administrator
OR
If you can post the URL for the SBS Server that you use...I can probably tell you.

Cris HannaCommented:
If you are using SBS 2003 re-run the Connect to Email and Internet Connection Wizard (CEICW) on the SBS Console and tell it to create a new certficate.   This blog explains the process  http://davidschrag.com/schlog/407/renewing-a-self-signed-certificate-in-sbs-2003.
Then you'll have export that cert and install it on your mobile device.

then you need to export the SBS  certificate from a workstation...then somehow (depending on your phone) get the .cer file to the root of your device file system (not the storage card)..navigate to that location on your phone...then doubble tap the .cer file and it will install the cert

I found that when i try to access my exchange thru' web- based email account with IE. This shows: Certificate error.

when i double click the certificate error it shows me certificate path tab.

In certificate path>certificate status i saw This CA Root certificate is not trusted becuase it is not the trusted root certification authorities store.

But yet i still can login and check my email. But why i cannot synch with wm?

How to fix this problem?

Windows Mobile is very strick about having a valid certificate installed...yes the certificate must be placed at the root of the device's file system, then double tap.
If you're phone has a storage card...export the certificate from a workstation on your network, put it on the storage card..put the storage card back in the phone...then on the phone use file explorer to move the certificate from the storage card to the root of the file system...then double tap file.

i dont have storage card. i have build in 8gb memory. and i store my cert there. How to find the root then..
0
 
Cris HannaCommented:
If you have copied the cert to the phone, then you should have a program on the phone similar to Windows Explorer (usually called file explorer)...so find the cert file..cut and paste to the \ root of the device drive.  then double tap
if you don't already have the cert on your phone then you will have to connect the Windows Mobile phone to a computer and use ActiveSync.  Then use windows explorer to copy and paste the cer file.
