  • quick question about activesync

    Hi,

    Was wondering if activesync requires owa? Basically there are some iphone users that want to wireless sync with our exchange server and I'd like to know if OWA is required or would enabling activesync and OMA under the mobile services in Exchange for the user suffice? I'm assuming it's port 80 and 443 that it uses?

    Thanks in advance.

    It doesn't use OWA, but it is using http protocols. Not really sure what you are asking as you cannot have Exchange without OWA - it isn't an optional thing.

      What I mean with OWA is , can I have a user that has the OWA exchange feature disabled on his user account and still be to use activesync to wireless sync his iphone.

      Thanks.

        If you disable OWA in Exchange features then it should allow EAS to continue to work correctly because it is treated separately.
        Do the disabling through Exchange, nothing else.

          Hi, thanks for all your help. I don't want to disable OWA altogether just doing for individual people from their user exchange feature tab in their user account. Basically some will have OWA some won't and some that won't have OWA still need to sync their iphone wireless. So I think you've answered my question that a user can have their OWA exchange feature disabled in ADUC and still have iphone sync wireless via activesync correct? Thanks.

            That is what I wrote. I didn't say anything about disabling OWA completely (because you can't).
