outlook mobile on symbian 9.2?

Will Outlook Mobile work on the Nokia e71? The phone runs on Symbian 9.2 and
not Windows Mobile, so I'm not sure if the two are compatible.

Also, the help page says that in order to use Outlook Mobile I have to be on
Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, except I don't exactly understand what
Microsoft Exchange is. And from the few bits that I understood, Microsoft
Exchange sounds a bit overkill for my purposes.

Basically, I just want to be able to run MS Office, with emphasis on Outlook
Mobile (currently on Microsoft Outlook 2007, Windows XP Home Edition), on the
Nokia e71.

Help?

I used i-mate Jamin PDA phone for a few weeks to read corporate email
for my exchange account on Outlook Mobile on WM5. It works fine until
one day it suddenly stops working. I can still receive emails and can
see the title and the sender on the list view. When I clicked on the
email and tried to see the detailed email, it gives me a blank screen.
I can still hit "reply" and other menu options. It's just that the
window to display the email is blank and i can't see anything.
The same problem happens to text messages.

Have anyone seen this problem? How can I reinstall Outlook Mobile?

It might be due to the compatibility with Mobem Chinese system and
dictionary. The day outlook stops working is the day the software
trial version expired.

My carrier is T-mobile.

Any advice is appreciated. Thank you!

Hi

We have set up Outlook Web Access and Outlook Mobile on a Windows Mobile 6
device.

However there are two issues with the Tasks feature:
1- Task Requests/Updates/etc are do not show up in the Windows Mobile
Device Inbox. However they do show up in the Outlook client on the desktop
PC. How do make the Task requests/Updates/etc. visible on the Inbox of the
Windows Mobile Client?

2- In OWA, when creating a task how can you assign the task to another
person? This feature seems to missing.

Thse two features are very important in the company as their internal
organization/workflow depens heavilly on sending and assigning Tasks to each
other.

Thank you very much for your attention

Hi - I have noticed (and I have seen others replicate the behaviour)
that Outlook 2007 does not synch notes with symbian 9.1 devices (such
as the nokia e61).

Anyone aware of a fix?

Hello, I'm looking to find out what are my options for synchronizing a Public
folder calendar on an Exchange 2003 server with Outlook Mobile on a Pocket PC
device. Will I need to get 3rd party software to impliment this?

Basically, I have a client who has a new Pocket PC and wants to be able to
synchronize with their master calendar public folder on their Exchange 2003
server. At this point they are only asking for the ability to make an offline
copy of the public folder before leaving the office so it can be viewed while
out of the office. The ability to synchronize the public folder data both
ways has not been requested but I'm sure they may be interested in doing that
once I explain the options available to them.

Thanks in advance!

Running Exchange 2003 SP2.  I am working to get ActiveSync working to Windows Mobile 5.0 devices.  I have SSL and forms based authentication enabled on OWA.  When I attempt to sync the mobile device I get the following error in my event log:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Server ActiveSync
Event Category: None
Event ID: 3029
Date:  12/19/2005
Time:  10:11:12 AM
Computer: EXCHANGE
Description:
The mailbox server  has its [exchange] virtual directory set to require SSL.  Exchange ActiveSync cannot access the server if SSL is set to be required.  For information about how to correctly configure Exchange virtual directory settings, see Microsoft Knowledge Base article 817379, "Exchange ActiveSync and Outlook Mobile Access errors occur when SSL or forms-based authentication is required for Exchange Server 2003" (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=3052&kbid=817379).
For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

So I have read the KB article but I have not implemented it. 

I wanted to know what expereice others have had by preforming this procedure in Method 2?

Also do I read the KB right and you do NOT get SSL encryption over mobile devies?  "It says Make sure that Require secure channel (SSL) is not enabled, and then click OK"

I have a problem regarding Outlook Mobile Access. We have recently (within
the past 6 months), upgraded from SBS 2000 to Windows 2003 Standard
w/Exchange 2003. The OMA options are not showing up in AD Users and
Computers. Our update was performed as follows:

-We installed Windows 2003 Standard on a new server and promoted it to DC.
We replicated the user accounts from the old SBS box.
-A second Windows 2003 Standard server was built, then promoted to DC as
well. This box was built for Exchange Server.
-Exchange 2003 was installed and exisiting SBS Exchange user accounts were
migrated into the new platform. The old SBS box was then demoted to a member
server.
-We have not installed SP1 on either the Windows 2003 server or Exchange
2003 as of yet. We will perform this function when we have sufficient
downtime available to us.
-We are running Blackberry Enterprise server as a mail forwarder to those
devices (loaded on Exchange Server).
-We enabled and are successfully running Outllook Web Access.

I have a test box I am using to determine what the problem might be. I have
loaded Windows 2003 Server, and Exchange 2003 Trial over it. I have not
installed either SP1 for Windows or Exchange as I want it to mirror our
current environment and the OMA shows up as expected.

I have yet to find any resolution to my problem from Google, MS KB or TechNet.

My questions are as follows:
1) Is Blackberry server causing this problem? I could not find anything in
your MS databases regarding compatibility issues with BB server causing this
problem.
2) Can the OMA options be enabled in AD without having to reinstall
Exchange? They are available in Exhange System Manager, just not in the user
profiles for AD.

Any help, suggestions or pointers would be greatly appreciated.

I've got an Exchange 2003 OWA front-end server with Outlook Mobile Access
enabled. I'd like to apply the latest OMA device updates, but i'm having a
couple of problems..

1. When i try to install the updates (dupdate.exe) it says that i need the
Mobile Internet Toolkit 1.0.

2. When i try to install the Mobile Internet Toolkit 1.0 it says that an
incompatible version of the Microsoft .NET Framework was detected.

I've scoured Microsoft.com for a new version of the .NET framework but all
the ones i've tried say that the installed version is newer. The server is
running Ex2k3(SP1) on Win2k3(SP1).

What am i doing wrong?

Installing 3rd party SSL certificate to replace self-signed certificate lost connections to Outlook Web Access (OWA) and Outlook Mobile Access (OMA)
Environment: 2003 SP2 AD  server with Exchange Enterprise 2003 SP2
RPC-HTTP back end server (no front end)
 
1.       Previously we had Enabled SSL for OWA (Outlook Web Access) using our own Certificate Authority http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/SSL_Enabling_OWA_2003.html
2.       Followed Microsoft Article ID: 839357 titled: “How to redirect an HTTP connection to HTTPS for Outlook Web Access clients and how to redirect the Default Web Site to point to the Exchange virtual directory” unsuccessfully able to make work.
3.       Recently we purchased Exchange ActiveSync enabled mobile phones (iPhones) and implemented Method 2 of Microsoft Article ID: 817379  titled: “Exchange ActiveSync and Outlook Mobile Access errors occur when SSL or forms-based authentication is required for Exchange Server 2003”. This enabled the phones connection. Successfully.
4.       We then purchased a 3rd party SSL certificate and they had us remove the existing self-signed certificate and recreate a CSR – “Certificate Signing Request” from the default web site in IIS 6.0. This broke OWA and OMA. I recompleted step one on this list for the default web site which fixed OWA, however OMA continues to not work. I then removed the checkmark to require secure channel (SSL) from: Default Web Site, properties, directory security, secure communications and before restarting IIS OMA started working even though the device was set to use SLL. After restarting IIS neither OMA nor OWA worked.
5.       We then re-created a self-signed certificate as before in step 1 and this again fixed OWA but OMA continues to not work and we no longer have a valid request for the purchased 3rd party certificate.  Now unsure why OMA won’t work or how fix it or to implement the new SSL certificate without down time.
6.       Found: http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Configuring-Exchange2003-HTTP-Remote-Access.html however unsure if this is the correct way to proceed.
Any suggestion’s would be helpful and greatly appreciated!

We use Outlook 2007 on 2 different computers, one a laptop, running Vista
and the other a Desktop running XP. Both computers are plugged into a router.
We need to share the calendar and contacts on both computers (we don't need
to share emails). Is there a way to do this? Thanks

I have 2 computers and Outlook 2000 on both. I forgot to put my .pst file
from one to the other before starting to use the 2nd one so now they don't
match. Is there a way to sync them? I always just backed up the .pst and
carried it over so they'd always match and forgot.

I have Outlook 2003 on my laptop and my wife has Outlook 2002 on hers. My
company uses a Microsoft exchange server and she is using MSN DSL through
Qwest. When she sends me appointments from her calendar it comes through
normal and I can respond just as I do to people at work.

The problem I am having is when I send her an appointment it comes through
as a regular e-mail and she cannot accept nor will it post in her calendar.

Any suggestions? I am trying to link out 2 calendars together so we each
know whats going on in our day as well as knowing when we have seen the new
scheduled appointments.

I've configured my POP3 account as always and the "Test Account

my server, however I can send emails as usual.
No error is reported on the receive process, it executes like there
where no emails on my account (but there are).
Windows Mail, included on Windows Vista works does not have this

You're better off posting this in the beta testers newsgroups.

I have one email address, from which I send on the desktop. I want to be

Is there any way that I can sync the two pst files, without copying the pst
betweeen the machines.

Any offers

Is it possible to sync Outlook 2010 on 2 computers (my desktop unit and my laptop)?

Hi Everyone,

We have recently completed an install for a client and we now have 1 file/mail server (windows 2k3 standard) and 2 x Terminal Servers Windows 2k3 Standard. We have installed exchange 2k3 SP2 on the file/mail server and the clients use Outlook 2k3 on the terminal server.

We have noticed that some users are experiencing a significant lag (up to 15-20 seconds) when typing a message in outlook or trying to select different folders or even when trying to click on "new message".

Is this "lag" a known problem or can anyone suggest some possible fixes? If this has already been answered elsewhere then please direct me with a link. I tried to search the forums first but could not find anything specific.

Thank you in advance for any help or opinions.

Regards,

Brad

Hello Everyone and thanks for your help in advance. I am running Exchange 2003 Enterprise and want to set up access with an Audiovox PDA phone running Windows Mobile 2003 SE. The Exchange Server has been running stable for about one year and I also have OWA working. However, I am having problems getting Outlook Mobile Access to work either browser based or through server sync. When I try to access via IE on a regular laptop by https://server.domain.com/oma (I think this is correct), I receive a log in screen. However, once I type in the appropriate credentials, I then receive a server error message. Whne I do the same on the PDA, I get a similar message "unable to connect to your mailbox on server". ON the PDA, when I try to use server sync, when I set the server name to server.domain.com:443 (I am using SSL with a certificate issued by the Exchange server), I receive a "synchronization failed due to an incorrect SSL certificat common name:. I am surprised about this since I downloaded and successfully installed (I think) the certificate. I am further convinced this worked since I can get to Outlook Web Access on the PDA and am not confronted with the certificate challenge screen that I received before installin the certificate. Unfortunately, I am very inexperienced in OMA and PDAs and really don't know where to go from here. Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hello,

We're having a problem with our company's server dedicated to mobile synchronization. When you sync your device the first time the server forces you to use additional security. On Iphone and Symbian 9.3/9.4 it's just a password protection. On Symbian 9.1/9.2 and any phone that uses preinstalled RoadSync (SonyEricsson, Samsung) there's no protection at all. BUT unfortunately on WM5/6 after the synchronization is set up there's not only the password protection but also the entire device gets locked down. You can't install any software (neither through ActiveSync nor by using the .CAB package), you can't even copy a bloody ringtone! Everything is locked down and renders some advanced powerful device into a phone that can read your mail and that's ALL you can do. After that you can't even remove the synchronization - only a hard reset helps.
This had been tried on several devices so it's obviously some rules forced by the server.

Does anyone know how to deal with this from the user side?

If that's impossible, can anyone who had experience with this problem indicate what are the exact security settings on the server that trigger this problem? The admins are not being cooperative at all so I suppose that actually they might not know how to fix it so maybe I could point them in the right direction.

Thanks a lot in advance.

I am trying to setup outlook mobile access, but have run into a problem. When
I log in to the website with my account which has OMA enabled in active
directory I get this message on the web browser.

"Your user account has not been enabled for wireless access. Please contact
your system administrator for additional assistance."

I have double checked active directory and my account is enabled for OMA.
What am I missing here? Outlook web access works just fine, just cant get
this darn OMA to work for any users. Any ideas?

Thanks so much

Hello

I am trying to synchronise some iphones with outlook mobile access but am having trouble connecting ot the server. The server is SBS server 2003 and MS Exchange server 2003.

exchange is configured to retrieve mail via the pop3 connector from the hosting complany.

I used self SSL to add a certificate for oma.mydomain.com.au

I also had the mail hosting company add the same address to the DNS records for this domain.

When I type in the address oma.mydomain.com.au into a browser i am presented with the remote web workplace web page and not the oma page that i would be expecting.

Is this a problem with the way the hosting company has added the DNS entry or is a problem with IIS on the server.

If I type the address https://WANIP/oma i can actually get to the oma login window where i can login with a username and password and can actually see the messages .

Any help would be appreciated.
