We have a Windows SBS 2011 Standard server.  I was checking the remote web access interface through my mobile phone and noticed it came up with a new "mobile" interface.  When I logged on, it did not allow me to access email or computers.  I went back and clicked on the "desktop version" which took me to the interface I'm used to working with and everything looked fine.  Does anyone know if Microsoft added a new mobile interface to the RWA?

By default SBS2011 RWA does have a mobile site.  It can be accessed via the desktop by going to remote/mobile.   I.e: https://remote.domain.com/remote/mobile

I don't believe this has been changed recently though.  Not 100% sure on that.

Thanks David for the reply.  What is odd, in the past when I would pull up the RWA on my phone it would come up with the desktop interface.  Which worked fine; I could check email, etc.  When the mobile interface came up and I logged in, I could not see email or anything else.  It had a screen that told me I had logged in and I had the options to sign off or help.  Any idea why I would not be able to see the email feature?

It could be something to do with the mobile browser you are using.  Which browser was causing the issue?

Mobile browsers are continual being updated - The SBS RWA, not so much.
