For the Windows Mobile device you can connect it directly to exchange by setting the mailbox up on the phone.  It will then use ActiveSync to push sync to the device.

Blackberry, you will need BES, which you can download from here: http://us.blackberry.com/apps-software/business/server/express/

Outlook will sync when you configure it with an exchange account.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

u have to setup activesync, this will work for your windows 7 phone. You can also manage your windows 7 from owa as well once you are completed your activesync account on your fone.

You don't need to setup ActiveSync it's an integrated part of Exchange Server.

setup states you have to create the activesync policy if you want for passwords, syncsettings and all..

You do not have to do anything to get it to work, the policies are not required, they are an additional configuration if wanted/needed!

Hi,

Windows Phone 7 is really a consumer focussed solution and in common with earlier iPhone, Android and some other consumer SmartPhones doesn't have the onboard encryption/security capabilities that Blackberry has.

So before 'blindly' deploying email, contacts etc. to what are mainly consumer devices, ensure that you are under no regulatory or other legislative requirement to protect data on your mobile device by encrypting it etc?

For this reason, BlackBerry is used by a great many commercial and Government bodies since it's encryption and management capabilities are far superior.

Even BESExpress (the free version of BlackBerry Enterprise Server) supports a subset of IT policies enabling you to encrypt the device.

Regards,


RobMobility.

I understand  that Windows Mobile 7 and Exchange 2010 ActiveSync will work together

2 more questions:
- willI I need to connect the Windows Phone 7 to the Outlook PC through an USB cable or will it synchronise via Internet?
- My Exchange email accounts are set up to be also used also with OWA (http://mail.domain.com/exchange). Can I synchronise contacts and calendars via OWA and no need for a USB cinnection ?

Thank you

Yes, that is correct.

What names do you have on the certificate? Is it a 3rd party certificate? Or self signed?

I did not installed any certificate when I installed Exchange 2010
Just a plain, standard installation of Exchange2010, all default install parameters

However when I gotrough OWA (Outlook Web App) (https://myserver/exchange) it gives me a certificate error (I can go trough it and connect to Exchange) and the certificate error talks about "Inprivate FIlter" (I do not know if this error is related to my problem)

Thank you

If it's self signed which it will be by default, you will need to install it on the windows 7 phone.

I dont undestand. DO I have to understand a certificate on Windows 7 phone? Where do I get this certificate ? How do I install it ?
Thanks

Glen KnightCommented:
Your exchange server is using a self signed certificate.  You have 2 options purchase a 3rd party certificate (if you do this they will need the names in the autodiscover section of my article here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_2300-Outlook-continually-prompting-for-username-and-password.html ).

The other option is you need to install your self signed certificate on the Windows Phone. See the guide listed here for more details on this: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=dfad6c2f-988a-4b09-9e3b-58bfc9ac0447&displaylang=en
