Exchange 2010 Activesync and RPC over HTTP (Outlook Anywhere)

Im in the middle of an Exchange 2003 to 2010 SP1 migration and need to setup Exchange ActiveSync for mobile phones to get email, and Outlook anywhere (RPC over HTTP) so my Outlook 2003, 2007, and 2010 clients can connect outside the network.

First question is does the exchange Activesync URL change now that I am on Ex2010? Previously the settings I used on all phones were server name mail.mycompany.com, but it seems to not be working. How do I set this up to keep the old URL and settings?

Also I used that same URL for my Outlook clients to connect (msstd:mail.mycompany.com). What config changes need to be made to get this working?

First please go to: https://www.testexchangeconnectivity.com
And show the results of Exchange ActiveSync.

But what you can check is in the EMC -- > Server configuration --> Client Access -- >Exchange ActiveSync

There you see the internal and external URL, please set the internal on "https://yourservername.yourdomain.local/Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync

and the external on: https://yourexternaldomain.com/Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync

Then go to Authentication and set the "Basic Authentication (password is sent in clear text)" on

and the client certificate authentication to ignore.

Hope you have enough information

For the RPC you have to go in the EMC --> Server configuration --> Client Access

on the right you see outlook anywhere, please enable it and set it on the remote address.
and the client authentication method on basic.

but also here you can check it with https://www.testexchangeconnectivity.com

No reason why the old URL shouldn't work as long as you have redirected port 443 on the router/firewall to the internal IP address of the Exchange 2010 server instead of the 2003 server.

Don't mess around with the authentication types, there is no need to do this.
