This is a great question and I hope that it will get a lot of answers. (For the sake of this discussion I'll assume by 'push' you mean 'near-instant notification of new messages.' IMAP has something called IMAP IDLE which is similar but I don't think iOS supports it, or maybe Gmail doesn't, or both. Anyway, I don't want that term to become a distraction, I ...

Most likely because your corporate exchange server is running Microsoft Exchange Server 2003. Snow Leopard now only connects to Exchange 2007 (See http://www.apple.com/macosx/exchange/) whereas Leopard used to connect to Exchange 2003 using the OWA mechanism. iPhone supports both Exchange 2003, 2007 and 2010 it seems (See iPhone User Guide , page 2);

Use your iCloud email account. Pros: You can forward your gmail to the iCloud account to get push email on the iPhone. Cons: Sent email would originate from the iCloud account and not the gmail account (although I'm not sure if there's a way around that) – binarybob Mar 27 at 22:45 There is a solution here that will allow that to ...

I'm running Snow Leopard and my iCal Get Info command allows me to change colors. Here's a screen capture where I can make this change. To reach this window, I highlight the exchange "Calendar" in the left hand sidebar of iCal and enter Cmd I. In my iCal setup, I have "Home" (orange) "Gmail" (blue)and "Exchange" (red). I can get info and change the ...

Maybe you've already tried this but I'll suggest it anyway. Open Contacts and tap the arrow in the upper-left corner labelled 'Groups' if it exists. Ensure you have selected the right group of contacts. If you need to re-synch because the above did not work you could try this: Open the Settings app Open Mail, Contacts, Calendars Select the account ...

Outlook.com now supports IMAP and can be configured to work in Mac Mail. Take a look at the following Microsoft Community answer. Open Mac Mail. From the File menu, choose Add Account… Input your account information. Choose Account Type: IMAP. Input the following as the Incoming Mail Server: imap-mail.outlook.com. Choose to Use Secure ...

Note that if you are using Outlook 2011 for Mac with Exchange then you may have to right-click/control-click on 'Sent Items->Folder Properties' and then click 'Empty" to empty your cache before this technique of switching from 'Date Received' to 'Date Sent' will actually work. You need to have your 'view->Navigation Pane" selected to see the 'Sent Items' ...

I have a Verizon iPhone 4, and while I'm not using it with an actual Exchange server, I have several Gmail and Google Apps accounts setup as Exchange accounts that push emails to me without issue. I would try two things if I were you: Setup a Google account on your iPhone as an Exchange account if you have't already, and see if those emails get pushed to ...

You can look at davmail. It is an Exchange gateway and will allow you to read-write the Exchange calendar from iCal, or to use any email application with Exchange. Note that if your administrator allows IMAP access to your Exchange account, you do not need client support specifically for Exchange.

I'd been struggling with the same issue for over a year. Finally I installed DavMail Gateway which is free. It provides support for Exchange 2003 ( using OWA ). Using it you can even get support for LDAP directory services & even events in iCal!! See page for details. Step-by-step instructions on: Setting up DavMail on OS X IMAP Mail setup

From a quick glance at http://www.apple.com/iphone/business/integration/ -- Exchange can set password policies, network access (including VPN), restrictions on use of YouTube and iTunes, prohibit app installs and use of the camera. More information at: http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/Enterprise_Deployment_Guide.pdf I don't see anything about viewing ...

It sounds like Mail got a bit out of sync and it can't move the message because it doesn't exist. Here are a few things you can do to get it to resync. 'Quit' the Mail app - from the home screen, double 'click' the home button to show the list of recent apps. Press and hold the Mail app icon until it shakes and displays a red icon. Tap the red icon. ...

You may be able to fix it by doing the following: Open the Settings on your iPhone Select "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" Scroll down to the Calendars section Select "Time Zone Support" Turn on Time Zone support Or maybe you want to turn time zone support off? It's a little confusing. Here's what Apple says: When Time Zone Support is on, Calendar ...

Outlook 2011 can also connect to POP and IMAP accounts, so if your Exchange implementation supports those (IMAP preferred over POP) you should be able to use OL. Of course, that's not a 'true' Exchange client setup. Likely better to use your company's Outlook Web Access (OWA), or acquire Entourage 2008.

Outlook 2011 requires an Exchange 2007 and above server. This is because Outlook 2011 works over the Exchange Web Services protocol (EWS). This wasn't Apple's decision, but Microsoft, as it is the latest form of the Exchange service as they are phasing out MAPI, the legacy Exchange protocol. Apple's Exchange implementation in 10.6 and 10.7 also uses EWS. ...

I think this issue is specific to Lion. You can't even get to the info screen for an Exchange calendar, to make the colour choice shown in the screen shots here. Googling, I turned up the following Applescript to accomplish the task: tell application "iCal" set color of calendar "Calendar" to choose color default color {0, 0, 0} end tell

I don't believe there's a native way to do this, but you could set up server side rules (via Outlook Web Access, server side so they always process) to forward particular messages to a notification service, such as Boxcar (www.boxcar.io), then configure individual sounds using their iOS app. Here's a page that shows how to setup forwarding rules in OWA ...

When you created the Exchange account, I think it ask you if you want to keep your contacts or replace them with the ones on the Exchange. And it surely works the same for calendar events and reminders. It appears you asked your phone to replace your already existing contacts list with the empty one from Exchange. Your best shot to get your contacts back ...

As of August 2013, Exchange ActiveSync doesn't support shared Exchange accounts. This isn't an iPhone issue, but rather with the ActiveSync protocol. One option would be to use Outlook Web Access to access the shared Exchange account. This would allow the team to do everything that you've outlined here. Another option would be to set the individual ...

No you can not. I assume you're using Exchange for you calendar, although you didn't specifically say so. You can't necessarily create a private event, but you can create a subcalendar in Exchange that you can control the permissions of so that only you can see it. You can do this by: Open Outlook Go to Calendars Right click on your current main ...

The current Outlook for Mac does not support Exchange 2003 and below, it requires at least Exchange 2007. Entourage will work if you have a copy of that. If you don't have Entourage a program like DavMail may be the trick. I was never able to get it working properly with our Exchange server though so mileage may vary. Personally I ended up using Windows ...

A little amplification of what "apps" you are specifically referring to would be helpful. Assuming your company is using Exchange 2003 SP2, you should be able to use Active Sync with Microsoft Outlook for Mac or Entourage. This should allow you to sync your contacts, email and calendar events. Beyond that an app would need to suport active sync to interact ...

SnowLeopard was the first version of OS X to have built-in support for Exchange 2007. Lion Mail officially added support for Exchange 2010 (according to the Lion Wikipedia page). If the Exchange server is running Exchange 2010, it's possible that contacts and calendars were compatible enough on Snow Leopard to just work, but Mail was not.

You can use %short_name% and %long_name% to autofill some fields (such as email address, username, full name) in Profile Manager, and they will pull that information from your user directory. If you're using Google Apps via Exchange ActiveSync, then that will only work if your on demand user accounts have the same short name as your Google Apps user ...

Set up your iPhone with your Exchange account and it'll sync over the air. Settings -> Mail, Contacts... -> Add Account Then choose Microsoft Exchange. It'll configure email, contacts, and calendars, although you can choose to turn off email and calendars if you want to. Then, in Contacts, select your Exchange contacts, and add new.

I don't believe the mail app can work with OWA. If you cannot build the exchange account in the normal fashion do to the vpn being required then the server that hosts the exchange mail app on the iPhone is likely out of the picture. Can you not use the safari browser to access the web location for your companies mail service? The company I work for has the ...

For a small office, you may be able to get away with using BusyCal. It works well for sharing calendars with a small workgroup. You can turn your co-workers calendars on or off so you can see them, or not, depending on your need to de-clutter your calendar. It's worked flawlessly for us with MobileMe calendar sharing, or you can set up your own CalDAV ...

iOS does not use Outlook Web Access for Exchange support, it uses ActiveSync.

In the calendar settings inside the settings app (Mai, Contacts, Calendars) at the bottom of that menu there is an option to set the Default Calendar. I'm thinking it's set to National Holidays at the moment so you can just change it there so all new entries should reside in the default calendar. Hope that helps!

It appears that this works while using a VPN. The iPhone talks to the Exchange group policies, and can use all the mail folders (although, IMAP may be necessary for this). For more info, see this Apple doc (page 9).
