Setup acces for iPhone and Android

Posted on 2011-03-12

I have a broad question that I need some help with.  I handle the IT responsibilities for a small company and want to move some users from Blackberry to iPhone and Andriods that they have.  Instead of carrying 2 phones they want to drop the blackberry.
Current setup:
Sonicwall Firewall TZ200W
Barracuda Anti-Spam Firewall
Microsoft Small Business Server 2003

So far I can connect to OWA (Outlook Web Access), and IMAP to get mail, but I cannot send via the IMAP configuration.  I cannot get SMTP to resolve to send email.  In the iPhone I can also get mail via IMAP but not send via SMTP.  

The built in exchange connection that the iPhone supports does not work either.  

I know we do not have a DNS record, so is that part of the problem?  

So I'm trying to setup exchange on the backside, the firewall in the middle and DNS on the net.  I know the firewall is allowing IMAP to get email because I get the messages on the iPhone and I can get the IMAP messages on a laptop running Outlook.

Oh yes - it will probably send you off to sleep nicely!
Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
