This topic explains how to provision a mobile device, such as a Pocket PC or a Microsoft Windows Mobile device. When you provision a mobile device, you configure it to synchronize with Microsoft Exchange. Perform this procedure on each mobile device in your organization.

Before You Begin

To perform the procedures in this topic, confirm the following:

  • You have reviewed the manufacturer's documentation for the mobile device that you want to configure.

  • Exchange ActiveSync is enabled on the Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 computer that has the Client Access server role installed.


To configure a mobile device to use Exchange ActiveSync

  1. On the mobile device, from the home screen, click Start, and then click ActiveSync.

  2. Click Menu, and then click Configure Server.

  3. Enter the server address. This is the same as your Microsoft Office Outlook Web Access server address.

  4. If you have configured Exchange ActiveSync to require Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), select the This server requires an encrypted (SSL) connection check box.

  5. Click Next.

  6. Enter your user name, password, and domain.

  7. Select the Save password check box.

  8. Click Next.

  9. Select the check box next to each type of information that you want to synchronize with the server, and then click Finish.
