I have mine sending/receiving email via my company's exchange server and I have it syncing contacts and calendar via Entourage (which in turn syncs with Exchange). I haven't played with the VPN yet, I am not even sure why it's there because there are no applications that can make use of it AFAIK.Has anybody tried the VPN and or has anyone tried getting there email via exchange , good bad ?

Mine works the same way, in email I setup my company email account as an exchange account on the iPhone. On the phone I see my Inbox and all of its subfolders without a calendar or contacts. I use a MacBook Pro as a laptop with Office 2004 and Entourage (Outlook equivalent) and have a Dell desktop running Vista with the latest flavor of MS Office running on it. On the laptop, Entourage syncs with the Exchange server. I set up Entourage to sync with .Mac (under Preferences/Sync services check the boxes next to "Synchronize contacts and addresses with .Mac", "Synchronize events and tasks with iCal and .Mac" and "Synchronize Entourage notes with .Mac") and then I set up iTunes to sync all calendars and all contacts with the phone. The contacts and calendar events do not show up in the email tree like they do in Outlook, but the data is transferred to the phone, and show up in their respective locations there. Notes are not currently syncing but I'll work on that some more tomorrow.Ok, Can you tell me how you configured it. I just setup mine using the add mail and choose the exchange but it only shows the inbox. It doesn't actually show calendar or contacts along with other mail folders, also if i delete the email in my iPhone it wont' delete it on the server, it will just mark it as read. I had to have the IMAP port opened on my exchange server.
I'm assuming this "Exchange" option under the Mail Accounts is really just a standard IMAP connection.
I have server 2003 and exchange works fine for me via IMAP...actually works better than my previous WM6 device which used exchange but only sent text messages. With the iPhone I am getting full html messages, they look great. The only thing is it does not push the email, I have to pull it,i am having trouble connecting to my work's exchange server. IMAP4 is enabled and the ports are opened but still nothing. they are running exchange server 2003...i heard that Microsoft had sent out an update for IMAP4 on server 2007 but nothing for 2003. We have tried everything, restarting both iPhone and mail server, IP address for host name...still nothing. Same error comes up after i try to save account settings.
any thoughts? thanks
Not that I am aware of, I think that's how it was designed to work.So quick question (or maybe not so quick) - I'm sending and receiving email, but when I delete items from the iPhone, they still appear in Outlook. basically I need to go through and re-delete everything. These items are marked as read, but it's rather a large pain in the rump, and I was hoping there is a setting I have missed somewhere?
Chad was their a certain port you had to use? I am trying to gather as much info as possible so I can talk with our Network Guys. Does anyone have a step by step guide in setting this up?i got it to work! thanks for all the info.
FYI to everyone, iPhone does not except .bz domains. We had to switch over to our other mail servers.
