I'm trying to setup my iPad2 to receive my corporate email which is hosted on the companies's Exchange 2007 email server.  My personal email is working fine but no matter which parameters I enter into the add account screen on the iPad I can't get authenicated for an Exchange account.  

Server: myserver
Domain (internal): xxx.local
Domain (external):
User: zzz
What should the server name be?

What should the domain be (our external domain is a dot com)
Does user name need to be a FQDN?

    The server name you need to put in there will be the published external host name your IT dept has setup on the Exchange server.
