We have an Microsoft Exchange Server at work and use Microsoft Outlook as email client. We also have BlackBerry to access our official emails.
I have recently purchased an iPhone and would like to use it to access my official emails. I asked my IT guy about how to configure iPhone, he didn't take much interest. Basically he didn't want any trouble but wouldn't mind if I end up setting it up myself.
Though he certainly is not going to do something drastically to make it work (open up his firewall/upgrade email server), he wouldn't mind giving me some information about existing setup. The problem is that I don't even know what questions I need to ask him.
My understanding is that since anyone can send an email to "firstname.lastname@example.org", the email server of mycompany must be on internet and there must be some way to connect to it through iPhone. Please can help me sort this out?
