I think DavMail should be able to solve your problem. To quote from the page Ever wanted to get rid of Outlook? DavMail is a POP/IMAP/SMTP/Caldav/LDAP exchange gateway allowing users to use any mail/calendar client (e.g. Thunderbird with Lightning or Apple iCal) with an Exchange server, even from the internet or behind a firewall through Outlook Web ...

Exchange and Exchange ActiveSync are 2 different flavors from Microsoft. Exchange is enterprise-oriented, while Exchange ActivSync offers a subset of these features and more geared towards the consumer market. Previous versions of Outlook supported just Exchange, and services like Gmail and Hotmail offer Exchange ActiveSync -- which is why a plugin is ...

... You just got me thinking, Why doesn't Outlook support Activesync! I guess it would just be a redundant feature for Microsoft to support when RPC is so much more feature rich and complete... A quick thing that may work is just to set up a rule on Outlook (if you use it) or through OWA that will forward all your emails to the external Gmail account. ...

Outlook 2013 now supports ActiveSync natively (no Hotmail connector); however, there appear to be problems with non-Hotmail connections. The built-in Windows 8 mail client also supports ActiveSync connections. Edit: It looks like Outlook 2013 will only support ActiveSync connections to non-Exchange servers; see Exchange, EAS, and Outlook 2013 for details.

Seriously, it seems that Microsoft is trying to keep people from using Outlook in an obvious way. I can use ActiveSync from my Android device with no problem. It seems utterly foolish of MS to not include this protocol in their flagship desktop e-mail app. Google wins again. Shame on your Microsoft.

Actually, none of the released versions of Outlook work with Exchange Activesync, which was originally developed for mobile applications. Outlook uses a different Exchange protocol with lots more features. Outlook 2013 is the first version of Outlook that can connect via ActiveSync, but it's still in beta. The built-in mail client in Windows 8 also has ...

I wrote the question that you linked to in your edit, a question I still haven't found a good answer to. Please someone correct me if I'm wrong. It seems there's 4 ways to connect to exchange: RPC, RPC over HTTPS(eg. Outlook Anywhere), OWA, and Activesync. RPC is how Outlook connects to Exchange on the LAN(or VPN), you always hide this behind the firewall. ...

No, the exchange contacts will be in another contacts group. For example, I have my personal contacts in icloud group that is what I guess your 200 contacts are also in, and company contacts in exchange group the name depends on your "mail, contacts, calendar" setting of settings. I could see both of them together from "All contacts" group.

Go into root of your device and make a copy of *.pim file. Delete partnership and you will notice that there are no contacts any more. Restore saved *.pim file and your contacts will reappear. Do notice that sometime you will get "file in use" errors when replacing *.pim file. Just reboot your mobile phone and try again. If you do not see *.pim file in ...

Sounds like it's time to get a hosted MS Exchange account. Connect all the computers to that via Outlook and let the smartphone sync directly to it. Getting a smartphone to sync to multiple machines can be quite the problem. I had a lot of issues with conflicts and duplicated items when I tried to do it without Exchange.

Outlook Web Access is (slightly) different than allowing access from Outlook via HTTP(s). Yes. Outlook Web Access is the online web based email that you can use from anywhere. Outlook via HTTP(s) is basically the Outlook protocol delivered in a http(s) wrapper, so it has no easy to use web based mail.... However, both are easy to install and administer ...

Well the "sync" part should be the answer here, aren't your contacts already synced to your computer? Then just sync your new phone with your computer? If you don't have any syncing of contacts going on then you have to set up such a partnership between the computer and the old phone first I guess... ...basically when I replace a Windows Mobile phone all I ...

On my Windows 7 64-bit machine, when I plugged in HTC Viva (USB), it couldn't detect the phone: Later, I kept the phone connected (through USB) and manually went to Control Panel > Windows Update and clicked on Check for updates. After a few seconds, it detected the device and installed the appropriate driver.

No. ActiveSync is a protocol that mail app makers have to license from Microsoft, and they're not likely to stay licensed long if they lie to the exchange server about their provisioning status! The only way to remove the requirement is to have your friendly neighbourhood Exchange Admin alter your account's ActiveSync policy.

ActiveSync is supported in 2013, however GMail requires SSL and the Outlook2013 dialog for ActiveSync setup does NOT allow this. So, you will get Server errors when setting up your account. Perhaps there will be an update soon that will give the added functionality. Of course you could use IMAP, but as you probably know GMail IMAP support is pretty ...

It is not the best solution. in fact I don't believe it's a solution, but it works. I had outlook 2010 installed and the sync worked with the Google calendar sync tool installed. I have 2013 preview installed afterwards. the 2013 version uses the same .pst files as 2010. So the google tool synced because 2010 was installed (not used) and updated the pst file ...

It was working yesterday, so I'll tell you what was good ;) List item You can say "only store xxx days" of mail on your phone. Calendaring works well. If you have Exchange 2007+, your searches can go through the whole of the messages on the server, not just what's on your phone. There's probably some more good things, but our firewall is interfering at ...

Try WM5torage: a tool that allows to use your PDA as a regular USB mass storage device (or a flash drive if you want). Quick way to download it is go here and click 'Mirror download': forum on which it's hosted won't allow downloading of files for anonymous users.

For starters, Belkin are no better than generic - most of the time, it is just generic with a custom firmware/application branding. Next, Microsoft in recent versions of Windows (Vista + 7) have tried to standardise driver support. If you do not have any yellow triangles in Device Manager, then the device (driver) has been successfully installed. What you ...

When you sync your iPhone to an activesync exchange account, you have the option of syncing e-mail, contacts, and calendar. Simply select that you only want to sync your e-mail. However if you do sync contacts I don't believe contacts will be overwritten, it may just create duplicate contacts though.
