    Exchange 2007, ISA 2006 and ActiveSync

    We are trying to get Exchange 2007 ActiveSync to work externally through ISA 2006 so people can access their info from mobile devices such as iPhones.

    We've installed it using Verisign SSL certificates and OWA works fine. I can't however get ActiveSync to work. I've tested in on www.testexchangeconnectivity.com and get the following results, can anyone help please?

    - Silly question but have you enabled activesync for a particular user(s)?

    - also use the same url for activesync as you do for owa. make sure that in the Exchnage management console you have the internal and external URLs correctly defined in the following locations:

    Server Configuration | Client Access | Exchange ActiveSync's properties.

    On the isa server use the wizard to publish exchange activesync and make sure that your ISA server 2006 is at SP1 level to fully support SAN certificates.

    For more info check out this link --> Publishing Exchange 2007 OWA, Exchange ActiveSync and RPC/HTTP using the 2006 ISA Firewall (Part 1) and review all parts (6 in total)


    HTH,

    Ash.

    Thanks Ash, it's got it all working now.

    I altered the ISA config to be NTLM authentication and then in IIS on Exchange set Microsoft-Server_activesync up as integrated windows authentication and it all sprang into life!


    Hooray!

    I hope you're well.

    Hi Divaldo, I am having the same problem when I try to get iphone to synch with exchange 2007 to get emails externally. OWA works fine from PCs but not the iphone or a blackberry. We're running ISA 2000 and exchange 2007. Blackberry used to work fine with exchange 2003 but since the upgrade to exchange 2007 it stopped and can't get iphone to work correctly. I am having to forward users’ email instead of connecting the mobiles to mail accounts.

    I was told that ISA 2000 doesn't fully support Exchange 2007 that's where the problem lies, is it true?

    I hope you can help with this- Your help is appreciated.

    Thanks
