Htc Magic - Exchange Activesync - Wirelessly Sync Emails Contacts Tasks And Calendar Entries With Outlook


I have the rogers branded version of the magic and i was thinking about setting up a hosted exchange account. Can anyone comment on how well or how poorly exchange accounts work with the magic? I just want to be able to easily and wirelessly sync my emails, contacts, tasks, and calendar entries with outlook.

I have been using many different nokia phones over the last couple of years and i really liked that i could just enter the server details and within a few minutes of starting a new phone i could have all of my pim info loaded. Is there an option to only sync every 15min, or 30 min if i am trying to save battery life?

Samsung Captivate - Exchange Activesync - Contacts And Calender Do Not Sync

Have been a longtime windowsmobile user. The captivate has a menu to synchronize with exchange including mail, contacts and calenders. I got mail to work, but contacts and calender do not sync. I would assume it is officially supported since it is in the menu. Has anybody else got it to work, meaning can you pull contacts and calender from your exchange account down to your phone?

Htc Incredible - Activesync Exchange - Send Emails But Not Receive

I installed touchdown and my work exchange account works great. When i try and use the native client it doesn't work right. It sends just fine but it does not receive. The only way it will receive is if i go back into the account settings and saving the account even though i don't change anything when i go back to the inbox it syncs up. But after that it stops. Does it have something to do with the certificate warning i got when i entered the account info? Or is it something else ? I need to use both clients for my two accounts so i need to get this working.

When register the account it doesn't sync at all. When i go to my general sync settings and select exchange/activesnc and then select sync now i get "error when doing ssl" if i go to account settings>configure server then unselect "this server requires an encrypted ssl connection" then i reselect and then save it will sync. But just that one time. Anytime after that i get the "error doing ssl"

I can send emails but not receive. (Emails get sent twice)

I think it has something to do with the certificate. I cannot login to the owa page from the browser either. When i try and configure the mail app i get the same certificate error. Anyone else having this issue?

Activesync And Exchange Calendar

Having a bit of an issue trying to set up my wife's new vzw lg ally. It runs android 2. 1 for those that don't know. I am trying to get it to sync with an exchange accout. It works fine for email and contacts but won't sync at all with the exchange calendar. It says "sync error - sync is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly. " This message never goes away unless i turn off syncing the exchange calendar. Everthing else seems to sync fine regardless of this message.

I have tried to remove syncing the google calendar with no luck. I know i can use tounchdown since i am using it on my hacked tp2 android with the same exchange server, but really wan't to use the stock stuff. It seems like it should be an 'easy' fix since i am not having problems syncing contacts or emails. Btw - this is with an exchange 2003 sp2 server.

Htc Desire - Exchange Activesync Contacts

I use activesync to synchronize my contacts between my exchange server 2010 and my htc desire (2. 2). Quite a few of my contacts just have a company name but no first/last name (like hotels, banks, etc).

When synchronizing, first and last names get added to these contacts, e.g. Having a contact with company name "adobe systems incorporated" will add "adobe" as first name and "incorporated" as last name.

Having far more than 1'000 contacts, whereof an unknown number gets messed up is rather annoying.

Htc Incredible - Setup Exchange Activesync

I just set up exchange activesync, and here are my thoughts:

1. Very easy to set up. My company does not use security policies, though. I just typed in server, domain, username, password, and email address, and everything worked flawlessly.

2. Emails sync with outlook (both send and receive) about as fast as they did on my blackberry with bes server.

3. Calendar stuff syncs fine and i have had no problems yet, but it seems to take a little bit longer than email to sync. Maybe a few minutes or so. (Or maybe i just had a weaker signal when i was messing around with the calendar, so everything was just slower).

4. Folder view for emails is far superior to blackberry. I can easily view the directory structure of outlook and view the emails within each individual directory.

5. I don't use notes or tasks, so i can't comment on that.

6. Overall, i will have to say that my experience rivals my corporate email experience on blackberry, which is a huge surprise. I thought blackberry was far and away the best device for email, but i guess i was wrong.

On a side note, i still think that blackberry's notification profiles kill android's notification profiles, even with the various apps out there for android.

Htc Hero - Exchange Activesync - Getting Error Message

Has anybody managed to get their hero working with exchange. I've had no problems with hotmail, yahoo or googlemail but keep getting error message when trying to use the activesync - it doesn;t appear to even try to connect before it throws up an error message saying the provided details are incorrect - they are definitely correct. It synced fine via touchdown using the same details.

Htc Nexus One - Contacts Double Entries

So i switched to my nexus one from a nokia n95, and when i did, i brought over all my phone contacts simply by copying them to the sim while it was in the nokia, and then importing them from the sim after i put it in my n1. Then i rooted my phone in order to install thai fonts, and that wiped them out. But i exported them all to the sd card first, just using the 'contacts' menu, then re-imported them from the sd card after the wipe.

Now, they're all in there with double entries. They don't show up twice in the list, but when i click one, and select 'edit contact, ' all the information is in there twice.

The entry starts look like this:

- "Google contact"
- From (my email address)
- Icon, or blank icon slot
- The name slots
- Phone numbers
- The empty slots for email and address information, etc.
- 'more' dropdown button

Then all of the stuff i just listed, is shown again, right below the first entry. It's that way for every single one of the contacts i brought over from my old phone (these are currently the only contacts in my n1, as i haven't added or imported from any other source yet). Any ideas what happened, and how to fix it?

Htc Droid Eris - Microsoft Exchange Activesync Does Not Work 100%

Has anyone had any luck getting this to work with any other app other than "touchdown"? I'm using "roadsync" right now and it works about 97%. For people who use "touchdown" how would you rate it? Is it worth the money? I still think it sucks the program that came with the phone does not work 100%.

I'm currently set up to receive/send work emails via the pop server but anytime emails download to the phone they show as read on my work pc even if i haven't read them. According to htc this is a bug in the old software. I have recently downloaded 2. 1.

Htc Evo 4g - Activesync Will Not Stop Trying To Sync / Fix It

I got my evo last week and within the past few days i noticed at times the activesync starts up adn will continue to try to sync my emials which is totally draining my battery life. The first time i noticed it, my phone was very warm adn the sync icon on teh top of the phone appeared. Being a new user to the evo (and android) i started looking into it further and when i woudl view the sync status within the exchange account, the circle would roll, reset for a splt second and start again. It would never make it to teh calendar or contact as it just tried to get the email over and over again. Next, i tried to turn off. No luck. Eventually, i removed the account adn then reestablished and that seemed to fix the problem. Temporarily. Within the next 18-24 hours it did it again and i am now seeing it once a day. Any thoughts on why or how to fix this issue?

Exchange Activesync And Patternlock

Just got my htc legend a couple of days ago, and i'm loving it!

One thing i like is that i can unlock the phone quick and easy, through the pattern. But when i enabled my work email through exchange activesync, it forced me to put a password on instead of using the pattern.

Anyone know if i can bypass the "you need a password", and still use the patternlock when i have my work emails on my phone?

Htc Desire - Sudden Disappearance Of Exchange Calendar

So today at some point after 2pm (because i successfully added something to my calendar then) i have lost the ability to add stuff to my exchange activesync calendar which used to be synchronised to my google apps calendar. All the old stuff is still there and the inbox is syncing fine. If i go to the setting the tick box to show the exchange calendar is missing. If i add something online it does show up on my phone. I can even open stuff and read it but i cannot add anything new.

Please help. Saying "remove activesync account and re-add" is not a solution. I shouldn't have to keep doing this every few days to sort syncing issues.

Outlook Sync Calendars

I am looking for a solution that will sync my calendars at work with personal calendars. My problem is that my company's it policies are, to put it mildly, overbearing. So any solution that involves installing a program on my desktop to sync my work calendar (outlook) with my personal calendar (google) is not a solution at all. Does anyone know of an app that will sync the two from my phone or is it really impossible?

Htc Hero - Syncing Contacts With Exchange

I want to sync contacts. The days of "this data is exclusively on my phone" and "this data is exclusively in my e-mail" is over for me. But there is still a difference between what is useful to me on a super-portable device (handset) used not least for calling, texting and on-the-fly data checks, and a less portable device (laptop) used not least for writing and overview. My contacts contain many kinds of data, multiple phone numbers, addresses, b'days, notes and stuff.

The following is my findings:
- Android seems to think that syncing contacts with exchange is bad. Maybe it's a google vs.microsoft thing. I don't know. Can't make it work for contacts unless using a third party client.
- When syncing contacts with google i can only sync all my gmail contacts or none.

My dilemma is this: i can't sync with either platform without a mess!

In the blue corner: i have in my outlook exchange my telephone contacts. This is because my previous phone was winmo, not because i love outlook.

Syncing: either via a third party client (which has yet to work for me) or i can stuff them in a csv-file and put them on my handset - but then i can't sync them and every subsequent update will only exist on the handset.

In the red corner: i have in my gmail account a huge mess of e-mail receipients. Syncing between handset and google is hella easy. But many, many of the gmail contacts i very seldom use, and only for e-mailing.

To sum up rhetorically: am i the only one to think that my handset contact list should consist of some of my gmail contacts (e.g. Those with a phone number attached to them) rather than all of them?

I think i need a separate site: contacts.google.com where i can decide what contacts i want to share between which platforms, sites and clients.

I want to leave exchange behind. I want to sync with google. Not one-off import from google, but sync. How do i not get every last person i ever sent an e-mail to clogging up my handset's phonebook?

Cannot Download Outlook Contacts To Droid

I cannot download my outlook contacts to the phone. I searched the forums and found out i had to pull my notification bar down. The phone seems to show that it's connected validly (my option is to "turn off usb storage). But, when i get through the process to tell the computer to export files to drive l, the usb into which i've plugged the phone, it's only letting me download to something called a backup folder on the phone. I've got a million contacts & i gotta get this right.

Htc Evo 4g - Sync Only My Contacts

I have a vanilla 2. 2 updated evo. I want to sync only "my contacts" from my single gmail account. I have already removed the "show all contacts" from the view menu. Instead of having the "my contacts" option in the view menu it only shows "google" and that option subsequently corresponds "all contacts" in the gmail interface and loads all of the gmail suggested contacts. This was not like this on 2. 1 and it worked perfectly.

Also, i have already filtered the list with "show only those with phone numbers" but this does not stop the auto-fill feature in the email interface.

Anyone have an idea? I have spent considerable time looking for a solution and it would seem even rolling back to 2. 1 is not an option.

I forgot to mention that i have already reset the phone to factory defaults twice so it's indeed as vanilla as it gets.

Samsung Moment - Not Sync Automatically With My Work's Exchange Server

I have the samsung moment (android 1. 5) and it will not sync automatically with my work's exchange server (2003). I can force it to sync manually but when i go into the activesync app all of the buttons are "off. " I can manually turn them back on but after a few minutes they revert back to the "off" setting.

I have several coworkers with the motorola droid and they have not had problems syncing with our server. I have taken it to the sprint store and they say that it might be a setting that is wrong on the server. I asked our it guy and he couldn't figure it out either. I wouldn't think it is a setting on the server because everyone else with android phones is doing fine.

Finally, i downloaded "touchdown" and it tries to sync automatically with exchange but i get the following message "internal server error: please contact your administrator" likewise with touchdown i can manually force it to sync but it cannot do it automatically.
