    Blackberry is different to the others, but for iThingys, roughly:

    Make sure Exchange is accessible from the internet and you have a 3rd party certificate installed
    Run the "connect to exchange server" wizard on the device
    Put in external name (e.g. mail.domain.com)
    Put in username, password and internal domain (e.g. domain.corp)
    Get your email!

    For Blackberries, the best way is to set up your own BES server

        You can try to install the self-signed cert on the device but it will be a PITA.
        Check www.godaddy.com (or similar) and you will find suitable certs come in at about US$70 per year -- which is worth it if it saves you the hassle with every iThing you configure

          The self signed certificate is not supported for use with ActiveSync.
          Your best option is to change to a commercial SSL certificate.

          I have instructions here:

          Doing anything else is a waste of time, due to trust issues etc.

          For Blackberry, your best option is to deploy a BES Express installation, this will give you full functionality of the Blackberry with your mailbox. BES Express is free, and can be used with Blackberry devices on a BIS plan.

            You can get Blackberrys to work with ActiveSync. Although you need a 3rd party product like Notify Sync to leverage EAS on the Blackberry for a yearly subscription. Saves the aggro of BES/BES Express installation if servers and cost are a premium.

              Another thing that I have noticed on mobile devices is a lot of them do not like wildcard certificates, they will work but will prompt users to accept the certificate.
