Hello.  I am still learning AD and exchange but I want to setup my company email on my phone.

I have access to AD and exchange, but how do I find the pop3/smtp settings on the network?  

thanks in advance!

What kind of phone? What versions of Windows Server and Exchange?

Modern versions dont use POP but use direct push (Activesync) technology instead.

The question I should have asked:
Can you not just ask your IT people?

thats fine, then I would like to know the activesync but also how to find the settings I would plug in standard microsoft outlook/express client.  

thanks again

I'd direct you to your IT people again.

In any case, you can try some common names like mail.domain.tld, smtp.domain.tld, pop.domain.tld, pop3.domain.tld.

Oh lol I see, you are curious.  Np.  Actually I am an I.T. lobee and my peer is a jerk and wont answer the question.  As I am still learning AD and exchange, I am trying to figure out where on the network to find this information.  I guess I kinda figured since I paid for an experts exchange account I would not get referred back to some other I.T. guy.

As a "lobee", do you have access to the exchange server? You could check its internet identity by going to www.ipchicken.com...it will return the IP address and reverse lookup of same. The reverse lookup, if properly configured, should give you mail.contoso.com or whatever the FQDN of the mail server is.

When configuring "Corporate Sync" on your android, this is the server name. Login is DOMAIN\username and your network password. I don't know the size of your organization or if your exchange has a third party certificate. When prompted about SSL, start with selecting it and "Use Any" or "Don't Verify"....work your way backwards from there untiil it works.

By default Exchange 2007 (there is no 2008) and above dont do POP...nor will they accept SMTP from just any client.

That wasn't my intent.  Sometimes people ask questions to get around safeguards put up by their employers.  It seems to me, if you're allowed to have access to your corporate e-mail on your cell phone, your IT department should help you.  If they won't, go to their supervisor(s).  There are legitimate legal reasons to deny someone access to corporate e-mail outside of work.

In any case, I gave you several settings to try in my previous post.  Tell us which version of Exchange you're using and maybe we can be more specific about where to look.

yes, Paul, I kinda figured why you were curious no worries its understandable.  

I am allowed to have the email access, I am just trying to learn here.

In the Exchagne Management Console, look under Client Access in Server Configuration.  You'll find what you need there.
