This topic explains how to configure a mobile device, such as a Pocket PC or Windows Mobile® device, to use Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync. Perform this procedure on each mobile device in your organization.

To perform the procedures in this topic, confirm the following:

  • You have reviewed the manufacturer's documentation for the mobile device that you want to configure.

  • Exchange ActiveSync is enabled on the Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 computer that has the Client Access server role installed.

  1. On the mobile device, from the home screen, click Start, and then click ActiveSync.

  2. Click Menu, and then click Configure Server.
