  • SBS and Outlook mobile access

    Hi guys,
    I have posted my question in Exchange 2007 section but I think this place would be more appropriate.
    I was trying to configure Outlook mobile access. I am running SBS 2003 and Exchange server with service pack 2 When I tried to access my exchange server using IE7 and tying address http://my_server_name/oma
    it used to give me some errors. After some research I found that OMA with SBS 2003 can be accessable using http://my_server_name/exchange-oma

    When I tried that it worked but one thing is bothering me. The interface that I am getting is more similar to interface we used to get with out look web access. Did you guys get me ? What I mean is to say that my previous out look mobile access used to be hyperlinks type of interface (that i used to get when i was running win 2003 enterprice + exchange with sp1) but now my interface is similar to outlook web access.

    Have I done any thing wrong in configuration. Please advice me that am I retrieving my mails from mobile using correct address and is my doubt is wrong about the interface

    UTFW use the internet connection wizard and in the firewall section (you don't say if you have ISA/Premium or not) tick that you want Mobile access. Other than that there are only 3 things you need to worry about with SBS and Mobile - certificates, certificates and certificates.

    Search the MS site and find the White Paper on SBS and Windows Mobile 5. Chapter 4 gives you the bit about certificates.

      Good day Teiger,
      I am not using firewall at the moment. Just want to double check with you that I am accessing mobile access by using the address http://My_server_name/exchange-oma
      Am I using right address. The reason why I am confuse is before that in windows 2003 enterprice edition I used to access by http://My_server_name/oma
      So am I right that in SBS 2003 I've to use this string http://My_server_name/exchange-oma to access via mobile
