Hi,

Is it possible to get email on an IPad from an Exchange 2003 server that doesn't have OWA enabled?

Yes, you should be able to connect to exchange for email without OWA.

See this guide for step-by-step instructions:

Have you got POP3/IMAP enabled? You can use that, or the standard ActiveSync.

HI,

I tried it and it didn't work....

I'm actually confused on what server should I put in the Account Information on the Ipad.

Thank you!

Use your external IP as the server, and your domain details for almost everything else.

OK,

I finally got it figure out and I can get email on the IPad. My question now is how secure this is since I had to open some ports in order to do that? Now I have the https port open from WAN to the private and public IP address of the exchange server.

Thank you for your help!

OWA has nothing to do with ActiveSync.

ActiveSync is what is used with the ipad/ipod/iphone and other ActiveSync Enabled devices.

You need port 443 open, this is the only port required if you have ActiveSync enabled with SSL and this is secure.

See my guide here on how to configure the iPad/iPhone for use with Exchange Server: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_3211-Configure-iPhone-for-use-with-Exchange-Server.html
