when you have outlook web access open in Android, is it possible for it to give a vibration or sound to let know that there is a new mail? (i know this is a default sound in desktop, how about mobile devices)?

    If you're using OWA on a browser that's not Internet Explorer, you can only use the "light" version - that means, no public folders or outlook style look and feel.

    You can configure Exchange email on Android devices so it appears as messages on your smart phone.

    ActiveSync (or POP3/IMAP) is required for the phone to "know" when it receives an email from Exchange.
