Applies To: Unified Access Gateway
Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync is a Microsoft Exchange synchronization protocol that is optimized to work together with high-latency and low-bandwidth networks. The protocol, that is based on HTTP and XML, lets devices, such as browser-enabled cellular telephones, Windows Phone 7, or Windows Mobile powered devices, access an organization's information on a server that is running Microsoft Exchange. Exchange ActiveSync enables mobile device users to access their e-mail, calendar, contacts, and tasks, and to continue to access this information while they are working offline.
To publish Exchange ActiveSync through Forefront Unified Access Gateway (UAG):
In the Forefront UAG Management console, either publish a new Exchange application as described in Publishing Exchange ActiveSync on a Forefront UAG portal, or add the Exchange ActiveSync mail service to an existing published application.
Exchange ActiveSync does not appear as an application in the portal even if the Handheld device or Mobile internet browser check boxes are selected on the Application Properties dialog box.
