SBS 2011 Migration and user email access on wireless devices config?

Hello,

We are wrapping up a SBS 03 to SBS 11 migration this week and have a quick question.  We are in the final stages of migrating the mailboxes as well as public folders today and have completed the Connect to Network, Configure the Internet Address, as well as Migrate Network settings wizards.

Previously, users with wireless devices such as Androids and iPads were able to get email while connected to the old SBS 03 via their add Exchange e-mail wizards on devices, and just using the external IP: 205.x.x.240 as the mail server.  My question is, where and how do we migrate the settings that will enable this again right away, onto SBS 2011?  Are the settings only from a certificate,  or elsewhere?  I want to minimize downtime and are looking for direction on how to enable users to once again view exchange e-mails on their wireless devices, once the mailbox migration completes.  I also just tried setting up a user mailbox on an Android device the same exact previous way, whom I already moved mailbox over to SBS 2011, but it's not working at the moment. Thanks in advance

First... I would get in the habit of configuring DNS instead of public IP but that aside, SBS11 is pretty different from 03 and with the autoconfigure-abilities they should only need their email address and domain password to reconfigure. In short, they need instructions to delete the old exchange account then add the new or, you take 30 seconds to do it for them. How many users?

Thanks Elixis.  There's only about 10-15 users, which shouldnt be a problem for me to do it manually for them.  I just wanted to make sure I had my X's and O's completed I go ahead and re-configure their devices.  Thanks for the info again and will advise if any other problems occur.
