  • Hi WildWest_0075,

     

    Just mentioned as Tim, there is no need to download the client.

     

    Right now the best way to use OCS on Droids is Communicator Web Access(CWA). Like Outlook Web Access, this framework allows web-based use of a Microsoft case, Office Communicator.

     

    Here is an article for you.

  • Android 2.1 does not have native ActiveSync support - it has to be added by HTC/etc. Android 2.2 has EAS built-in to the core os, but it's still optional for the manufacturer if they want to use it. The HTC Desire originally had 2.1 when shipped, but has a 2.2 update available. Haven't had time to test it against Exchange 2010 SP1 yet though.

  • Looks like a OCS client for the Android is in Beta...right now you can use Communicator Web Access:

    ActiveSync is built into the Android OS, so no extra client download is needed.  Just set up your mailb profile on the Android.

  • ActiveSync works fine with HTC Desire Android 2.1 and Exchange 2010, have seen a few people reporting issues with sp1 but I haven't deployed sp1 yet to test personally.

    My HTC does not correctly use autodiscover.domain.com or domain.com/autodiscover to find the Exchange server though, it tries to set the server as domain.com only. This means I had to manually configure the Exchange services when initially creating the ActiveSync profile. Bit embarrassing when iPhone and Windows Phone devices do work with autodiscover. Once set up its all good at the moment.

    Regards

    Mark.

  • Update warning - Exchange 2010 ActiveSync on my HTC Desire (Bravo) has totally stopped working since we upgraded to Exchange 2010 sp1.

    It won't even go to Quarantine, just gets immediately blocked out at the user mailbox level for some reason.

    iPhones and iPads are working fine and will go through Quarantine if I configure that option.

    Its starting to smell like this could be a Microsoft v Google wars issue (... a "bug" that will upset Android customers until it get fixed by an update ??).

  • Mine only works when running Touchdown, the EAS which is included (which must have been added by HTC then) was working on E2k10 until we loaded sp1.

    My firmware is from the Telco though, so the generic HTC 2.1 firmware EAS could still work I guess.

    Personally, I'm happy to use Touchdown until my Telco releases their 2.2 update over the air.

    Still a bit perplexed as to how the E2k10sp1 update could stop it from working, especially when it is meant to include the EAS device quarantine feature as one its highlights.

    Regards

    Mark.

  • SP1 for Exchange 2010 "upgrades" ActiveSync to version 14.1 instead of 14.0 and adds some new features. This shouldn't be a problem, but if the client isn't implemented properly it might decide it's not a proper ActiveSync version server side.

  • Looking for help on the following:

    Work computer has microsoft 2007 Outlook Exchange. Just recently got a Samsung Moment Android 2.1 mobile phone. I am able to set up syncing with e-mail and contacts on the android phone, but the calendar will not sync. Called Sprint and they said the Samsung Moment Android 2.1 does not support that feature. It appears there are some work arounds to be able to get my Outlook Exchange 2007 Calendar appointments onto the phone. Seems like HTC has built in a HTC sync software for Android phones but Android 2.1 on samsung phone does not.

     

    What is the way to get calendar on phone?

  • Hi,

    Android 2.1 MfE does not support calendar. I upgraded my Galaxy S to Andr 2.2, did a factory reset and manual MfE configuration, resulted in working Calendar.
