Hi guys,

I have just changed jobs and now work has Exchange 2003. In my last workplace I had no problems synching to their Exchange 2000 server. I have a feeling it's not strictly just an Exchange server issue though. Here's the full story.

I recently set up a VFNZ Gateway profile after having downloaded it from Club iMate. Browsing the web, or checking IMAP4 accounts, etc. now works great over GPRS. The issue comes when I'm trying to sync my Exchange 2k3 calendar with my PDA2K. I appears that the device tries to connect to the Exchange server via GPRS!! According to the indicator connected to VFNZ then tried to connect to the Exchange server.

Have I missed something here?! Shouldn't it try to connect through the PC connection? I never noticed this in my last work because I didn't have the VFNZ setup. Has anyone else had this problem before?

Any assistance would be immensely appreciated.

Cheers,
Dany.

Are you synchronising directly to an Exchange server, or through Outlook on your PC?

If you synchronising directly to an Exchange server, does it have a full domain incuding .co.nz or other TLD, or simply a single name (internal work network)?

That's a good point. I shouldn't actually need to sync with the Exchange server at all. I only want my personal calendar on Outlook.

I guess the next question is why does ActiveSync say, on the Calendar, "Sync status is on the device" or some such. None of my Calendar items in Outlook was synced to the device.

This has only happened in my new workplace. The settings haven't changed as far as I could tell.

"Sync status is on the device" means that when you created the parnership you (or someone who created it) select to synchronise directly with an Exchange server.

If this is not correct then you can change this by clicking on the server configuration and removing the items you don't need. Soft reset the device and then select the items to synchronise locally.

Thanks M, that certainly explained it all. Yes, I set it up to sync with Exchange server - just realised I don't need to do that.

Will check tomorrow.

Thanks again.

Synchronise directly with Exchange has some advantages. For example when connected to a wireless network at home or via GPRS - providing your Exchange server is visible on the Internet.

If not, synchronising to an Outlook instance that connects to Exchange is almost as good.
