Exchange Active Synch

Hi,
I just started at a new compagny and I need to figure out all about Exchange active sync and owa settings they have here from scratch and I'm not familiar with these:

Where do I go to know if
       1- OWA is in use
       2- What's the http link to it
       3- What are the data I have to input in an Iphone to acces the existing Active Synch setup
       4- How to set up an Outlook 2010 to access ActiveSync when on the road.

I looked at ESM and I see a POP3 Protocol and a HTTP one but it doesn't show the http: link required.
We have Exchange 2003 sp2 in place here.

tx!

My article is probably all you will need to get Activesync up and running:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_1798-Exchange-2003-Activesync-Connection-Problems-FAQ.html

OWA would be something like https://mail.yourdomain.com/exchange but you need to check your IIS Settings and DNS settings to make sure.  The SSL certificate installed in IIS Manager on the default website may tell you the address.

Hopefully you don't have an http: link to OWA as is isn't secure.

Outlook doesn't use Activesync on the road, it uses RPC over HTTPS and you can see if you have this configured by visiting https://testexchangeconnectivity.com and running the relevant test.
