To keep up-to-datewith your company email messages and meeting schedules while you’re out of the office, you can connect your phone to the Internet throughWi-Fior a data connection and synchronize with your company’s Exchange Server.

Setting up an Exchange Server connection

Before you can synchronize or access information on the Exchange Server, you need to set up an Exchange Server connection on your phone. You need to get the Exchange Server name (must be Outlook Web Access server name), domain name, user name, and the password that you use at work from your network administrator and enter them on your phone.

Note You can set up an Outlook email account that synchronizes with the Exchange Server from the Home screen Email tab using Mail Setup. See “Email” in Chapter 3 for details.

If you have not synchronized your phone with your computer, follow these steps to set up an Exchange Server connection.

1.Tap Start > All Applications > Email > SetupE-mail.

2.Enter the E-mail address andPassword for the email account and select theSave password option. TapNext.

3.Clear the Try to gete-mailsettings automatically from the Internetoption and tap Next.

4.In Youre-mailprovider, select Exchange serverand tap Next.

5.Tap Next again.

6.Select the Attempt to detect Exchange Server Settings automaticallyoption and tap Next.

7.Enter the Domain name and tapNext.

8.In Server address, enter the Exchange Server address and tapNext.

9.Select the items that you want to sync with the Exchange Server.

Tips • To change synchronization settings of an information item, for example,E-mail,select the item, then tap

Settings.

To change the rules for resolving synchronization conflicts, tap Menu > Advanced.

10.Tap Finish.

Notes •

If you synchronized email messages with your computer before, open ActiveSync on your phone, then tap Menu

 

> Add Server Source to set up an Exchange Server connection. When prompted to select information types for

 

synchronization, you must first clear the E-mail check box under the Windows PC item before you can select

 

E mail under Exchange Server.

To change Exchange Server settings, open ActiveSync on your phone, and then tap Menu > Configure Server.

Starting synchronization

Before you start synchronizing with the Exchange Server, make sure your phone has been set up with a Wi Fi or data connection to the Internet so that you can synchronize over the air. For more information about connections, see Chapter 8.

After you finish setting up an Exchange Server connection, your phone automatically starts synchronization. To manually start synchronization, tap Start > Settings, and then touchSync Data.

Note If you connect your phone to your office computer via a USB or Bluetooth connection, you can use this connection to the computer to “pass through” to the network and download Outlook email messages and other information to your phone.

7.2  Working With Company Email Messages

Your phone gives you instant access to your company email messages and lets you manage your messages easier. Direct Push, Fetch Mail, Remote email search, and email flags are just some of the tools you can use to manage your email messages.

Note Some messaging features depend on the Microsoft Exchange Server version used in your company. Check with your network administrator for the availability of these features.

Automatic synchronization through Direct Push

Direct Push technology (push email feature) enables you to receive new email messages on your phone as soon as they arrive in your Inbox on the Exchange Server. Items such as contacts, calendar and tasks are also

immediately updated onto your phone when these items have been changed or new entries have been added on the Exchange Server. To make Direct Push work, you need to have a Wi-Fior data connection on your phone.

You need to perform a full synchronization between your phone and the Exchange Server before Direct Push can be enabled.

Requirement The Direct Push feature works for your phone only if your company is using Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 Service Pack 2 (SP2) with Exchange ActiveSync or later.

To turn on Direct Push in Comm Manager

1.Tap Start > Settings, and then touch Communications.

Tip You can also tap Start > All Applications > Comm Manager.

2.On the Comm Manager screen, touch the OFF/ON slider at the right side of the Microsoft Direct Push item.

To turn on Direct Push in ActiveSync

1.Tap Start > All Applications > ActiveSyncand then tap Menu > Schedule.

2.Select As items arrivein the Peak timesand Off-peaktimesboxes.

Note When Direct Push is off, you need to manually retrieve your email messages.

Scheduled synchronization

If you do not want to use Direct Push, you can set a regular schedule for synchronizing Outlook email and information.

1.In ActiveSync on your phone, tap Menu > Schedule.

2.Select from the available options to set the synchronization schedule.

Tip You can select a shorter interval in the Peak times box and a longer interval in theOff-peaktimes box, so that your email messages are synchronized more frequently when you are working. To set the days and hours that make up your peak andoff-peaktimes, tap thepeak times link at the bottom of the screen.

Instant download through Fetch Mail

The Fetch Mail feature downloads an entire email immediately without the need for you to perform a full Send/ Receive action. This limits the download to just the email message that you want and helps save data cost.

Requirement Fetch Mail works for your phone only if your company is using Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 or later.

1.Tap Start > All Applications > Email > OutlookE-mail.

2.Open an email message.

3.By default, only the first few words of the message are shown. To download the whole email, fingerscroll to the end of the message, then tap Get the rest of this message.

4.Wait for the remainder of the message body to download.

Notes • For information about changing email sync options such as setting the download size for email, see "Customizing email settings" in Chapter 6.

When you receive an email that contains a link to a document such as a PDF or Microsoft Office document located on SharePoint or an internal file server, you can tap the link to view the document on your phone. You can view the document only if you have a Microsoft Outlook account that synchronizes with Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 or later. Exchange Server must also be set up to allow access to SharePoint document libraries or internal file servers.

Searching for email messages on the Exchange Server

Requirement Flags are enabled only if email messages are synchronized with Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 or later. Flags are disabled or hidden if email messages are synchronized with earlier versions of Microsoft Exchange Server.
