Setup Instructions

1. Press the button with the windows symbol on it (to the left of the circle button.
2. Go to Tools
3. Select ActiveSync
4. Enter email address > Next
NOTE: There are several functionalities of Mobility Pack that require that the domain on your email address is complete and valid. If it's not exactly right some things such as modifying appointments probably won't work.
5. Enter server address > Next
NOTE: Make sure you know whether the cert you have set up on the mobility pack server requires that you enter the server name or server IP or if either one will work.
6. Enter username, password and domain > Next
NOTE: The domain does not have to be a valid domain (though it can be). For example you could put something like garbage.com or bogus.net. It's basically just a space filler, it just needs something in there.
7. Select which components that you want to sync such as Contacts, Email, Calendar Items > Next
8. Press Finish
9. Then you're items should start syncing. You'll know it's working when you see the green circle with the white arrows in it spinning and you'll see the items "processing" in the top right corner of the screen
NOTE: If it appears to sync in only about 3-4 seconds and seems finished then it probably didn't work.

NOTE: Every single subfolder has to be selected, or it won't sync to the smartphone. Open the Outlook-Mailbox, select menu (lower right corner), then push the PopUp-menu up to see the option "Extras / ... Folders". Select each and every single subfolder that you want to sync to the smartphone.

SSL Considerations

  • To use a secure connection you must have a valid certificate.

How to configure your mobility server to use a self-signed cert for testing purposes

  • Will work with a self-signed certificate, but will issue a warning during the first contact. ("Connect anyway" can be selected)
  • Use iManager to export your "Organizational CA" Server Certificate in DER-format. Save this file as "something.cer" and import this on your HTC HD2. That will keep this smartphone from issuing a warning about insecure certificate.

Further Reading

As far as we could find it looks like all Windows Mobile Devices will only work on the default ports (80 or 443). If you try to specify a different port to use it won't work. For more into go here More Info and follow the subsequent links.
