Hi all,




I've come across a strange thing that I'm not sure is caused by my configuration or the systems and devices in use.




My client holds MOD data on their site, so everything is secuirty mad, and obviously they need their remote email (which they get online via OWA or on their iPhone) to be using SSL. This is working fine for OWA, but I'm not so sure about the iPhone.




I say this because when I change port 80 in IIS to some other random number, the iPhones are unable to make a connection.




They're set to use SSL, and there's a certificate in place which is working fine, but for some reason it needs to have port 80 active.




Is this just some sort of initial handshake between the iPhone and Exchange that takes place over port 80, or a sign that the configuration we've got isn't actually using SSL.




In a related question, is the configuration of Exchange 2010 for iPhone SSL easier/straight forward?




Thanks,




James

Exchange 2010 config is easier in my opinion because Active Sync is easier to configure.

Does OWA and Outlook Anywhere work?

I think generally moving to 2010 is a good plan, not least for the configuration ease.




OWA works fine and only over https. Outlook Anywhere works on the iPhones but only if port 80 is in the IIS config (as well as 443), hence my question about why an SSL connection from the iPhone would need port 80 as well.




Thanks,




James

Outlook 2016 32 bit
Email Account
Office 365 Exchange
I seem to recall something about that and am looking for the references to refresh my memory.




FWIW, the iPhone (& ipad, ipod) supports Exchange Activesync. I believe you will need a third party commercial certificate to secure communications, not a self-generated one, for it to work without issue. Then you can set it up on the idevice in Settings-Mail, Conacts, Calendars and choose Add Account- Microsoft Exchange.

Hi all,

I've come across a strange thing that I'm not sure is caused by my configuration or the systems and devices in use.

My client holds MOD data on their site, so everything is mobile network security mad, and obviously they need their remote email (which they get online via OWA or on their iPhone) to be using SSL. This is working fine for OWA, but I'm not so sure about the iPhone.

I say this because when I change port 80 mobility in IIS to some other random number, the iPhones are unable to make a connection.

They're set to use SSL, and there's a certificate in place which is working fine, but for some reason it needs to have port 80 active.

Why are they set to use SSL? is there a specific reason for this? why does 80 port need to be active!???
