It's very similar - but EXACTLY how depends on the version of Android - they all (by manufacturer) have different apps.  Look for your mail options on the Android devices and use the "ActiveSync", "Exchange" or other config.  Or take pictures of the phones e-mail setups and post them and we can tell you which way to go from there.

Look for an app called Touchdown by Nitrodesk. I currently use it to connect my Droid X to Exchange 2010 and it works flawlessly. I have also used it to connect the Droid X to exchange 2007 and also the first generation Droid to Exchange 2007. The default Droid email app does not work well with connecting to Exchange.

I partly disagree.  

The default app is very different on EACH BRAND of droid... I've used HTC and Samsung personally, and I've got a client with Motorola.  The HTC one works pretty well.  The Samsung one, not so much (and is the one I'm stuck with right now).  And the Motorola not so much.  I'm not thrilled with Touchdown myself as it's not worked quite right on my Captivate.  But a client using it on Motorola does like it.

Thats good info leew. I do not have quite a diversified experience on the different Droid models as you do, I have only used the Motorola Droid and Motorola Droid X. Another app is Moxier Mail. I have not tried it myself but it looks like it is getting decent reviews.

iPhones, especially older versions, seem much more forgiving with ActiveSync. I often see them continuing to work after Exchange migrations from one server to another (exchange version upgrades!) with no user intervention.

If you're having troubles connecting from Android OS smart phone and all settings are proper, your most likely reason is the SSL cert on the server. Is it a public certificate or in-house generated? If in-house (default on SBS), make sure you select "Accept All SSL Certificates" during the email accont config on the smart phone. That ought to do it.

I always get public SSL and put it in place for SBS clients - it's cheap these days, and setting it up on SBS Server is a peice of cake.
