Exchange ActiveSync can be set up only if your company has a Microsoft Exchange server. In addition, your company IT administrator must have activated Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync for your account. Before starting the setup, make sure you have the following:

  • A corporate email address
  • Your Exchange server name (contact your company IT department)
  • Your network domain name (contact your company IT department)
  • Your office network password

Depending on the Exchange server configuration, you may need to type in additional info during the setup. If you dont know the correct info, contact your company IT department.

During the setup, you can define how often you want your phone to sync the content with the server.Only content defined when setting up the account is synced. To sync additional content, change the Exchange ActiveSync account settings.

With Exchange ActiveSync, it may be mandatory to use the lock code.

Use of the Email for Exchange is limited to over-the-air synchronization of PIM information between your phone and the authorized Microsoft Exchange server.
