    I am trying to set up a Treo 700wx to access our Microsoft Exchange Server 2007. We run a VPN to access the network. Do I need additional software to make this work with Direct Push and the VPN? I am pretty lost, any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Do you have web access to your exchange server?

    If you have access to https://yourexchangedomain/OMA, then you do not need to use a vpn.

    Activesync/direct push uses https to communicate so if its open why bother with the extra steps.

    So I can get access to email via Internet Explorer within the Treo but shouldnt i be using Outlook???

    You setup the active sync to connect to the exchange server by using the OWA's address.

    For example, if your OWA is https://exchange.yourdomain.com you would put exchange.yourdomain.com in the activesync settings of your 700wx. You would also check the box to make a secure connection.

    Another example is http://mail.yourdomian.com

    You need to find out if your IT department is using SSL. If not then you don't need to put the check mark in the box to make a secure connection.

    Windows Mobile 5 supports VPNs natively.

    If you can get to your OWA without a VPN then you won't need the VPN software for your Treo to sync with the exchange server.

    I'm in the same situation, but I want to leave my activesynce connection alone to synce with my pesonal pc. I Would like to setup a seperate IMAP email account in pocket outlook using imap emails servers. If I do it this way, don't I have to use our vpn? Ir can I use the owa.companyname.com as a proxy?

    Thanks

    Your phone can sync with multiple computers. You just can't sync the same items. Sync your email and or contacts and or calendar with the exchange server and sync everything else with your personal pc.

    Via ActiveSync?? No... you still need a certificate, right?

    You only need a certificate if your exchange server is using SSL. YOu can tell by logging into your OWA. If the address uses HTTP then you are not using SSL. If it uses HTTPS then you are using SSL and then you have to get a cert for your phone.

    Check with your IT department to make sure you have the correct cert. Then make sure that it is installed correctly. I don't have a lot of experience with SSL on Exchange since we don't use it much with the companies I have been with.

    OK, gotcha. Weird thing is, our company uses SSL, but if I try to use just "http://" for OWA (drop the s) it still lets me log in. However, all the graphics are gone.... I can see, read, click-on emails, but all the icons are greyed out.

    I tried setting up server ActiveSync on my Treo to not use SSL, but it didn't work. I got back an Exchange error code which seems to indicate that non-SSL isn't supported. (even though I can still log-in to OWA without it)

    Unfortunately they're not giving out certificates (yet), so I'm stuck for the time being. Oh well.
