    i just joined a company that uses Exchange 2003 and OWA. That means, through a standard https web site, i can get my email calendar contacts etc.

    is there a way i can get push email and sync of all this via the treo? i used to use chatter for imap email, but this is more robust right?

    Anyone who can help is appreciated.

    First, do you have an MR-upgraded 700P? The upgrade provided standard push for Exchange. Otherwise, there is a patch Palm made available before the MR that provides push. All you need is the standard Versamail that came with your device, which worked fine for me. Just set up the account and you should be good to go, but if you have problems I'm sure your IT guys can help. It will autosync calendar and contacts whenever you tell it to, by setting the schedule. It will not sync memos, pics or anything else, so you need to cable sync for those apps. When I was using VM, I also got my Yahoo (paid) and Gmail accounts through it as well, but by using scheduled syncs. I happen to really like Versamail. Worked great.

    With a 680 and Versamail 3.5.2, you can set up a Microsoft Exchange account. For the server, I input the OWA website. Mine is webmail."company".com. Under the username and pw I use my network username and pw. Then if you are using an ATT 680, and have the Updated software (Treo680-1.09-ATT), you can download the EAS Update from Palm and have Push email.

    I am not sure if these settings will work for you, but that's what I did. It was very simple. No help from our IT as they support bb only. Have gotten this to work with another Treo user in our company also.

    Oops!! I didn't look at which forum this was in. Sorry.

    I agree with davidra. I like Versamail. It works great for me and it was free with my device. I have a yahoo free account and paid, gmail, and exchange all syncing without any major flaws. The yahoo free is with the imap and is touch and go.

    I downloaded Versamail from Palm. I cant get it to sync however. I am not sure what to put in when it asks for my mail server. at my old company it was mail.XXXX.com.

    but with the new firm, I can get email and contacts and calendar from any browser but it is an https web link and its pretty long. when i try to put that in the field, i get an error. should i be including the "https" piece? is there a shortened web name for the servier i should be using? I know this should work but could use a little help. thanks.

    I didn't use the https. I just put in webmail.xxxx.com which is the front page where it asks for username and password to log in.

    ok perfect. and my username is the domain\username, or just the username.

    I'm unsure. Is there any way that I get web access to outlook via OWA from any browser and NOT get versamail to work. i guess my question is whether i need to simply tweak teh settings or is there a possibility of a server-side block or some sort that im not aware of.

    thanks again for your help.

    I just use username...no domain. Maybe I just got lucky. I would play with the settings. After the first few setup screens, I have use secure connection on the incoming server screen.

    im getting a DNS server error note when i try to sync up. does that mean that i am keying it in wrong? I have to imagine if i can get outlook from any web browser via https, that this shouldn't be so tough. What do you think?

    That is a very good question. I don't know. What type of error message? I didn't have any problems.

    unfortunately you are up against a few issues.

    You can use OWA (HTTPS) through Chattermail without issue, although chattermail costs money and does not auto sync calendar, contacts.

    VersaMail Exchange has some very specific requirements that can be a pain. In essence, you need a 100% valid SSL (meaning no errors saying the cert is invalid), otherwise your IT department needs to allow non-ssl connections (a security risk). You may need to also turn on ActiveSync on the server... i can't remember if this is the case or not.

    Generally, your mail server is going to be mail.SERVERNAME.com you will not need to put the domain in for the username either when setting up versamail.

    Having used both Chattermail and VersaMail. VersaMail seemed more polished in the UI design with less frills, and chatter is feature-rich. Versa will sync calendar, contacts, email where as chatter will only do email.

    OK so i am not looking for the world, just email sync. i have chatter, but not the ex plug in as my last company was using imap4. in this case, I have tried to DL the EX plugins, and the send.prc seems to come over fine, but i cant find the sync.prc plugin. and when i set up, the inbox just shows a red OFFLINE in the lower right corner. can you give me any addtional info on how to get this going with chatter. i have exchange 2003 sp2, i have OWA access. what else can i do?

    Try downloading the EX plugins from here:

    On one occasion Chatter stopped being able to access the server. All I did was erase the server name, re-enter it, and it started working. Use the Chatter support email address; they've been very helpful, even though they're not doing any developing. You might also try removing and reconfiguring the mailbox (account) for Exchange.
