    Hello! have been reading for hours and can't find answer anywhere so I'm hoping someone here can point me in the right direction (or tell me its impossible).

    My IT will not support iPhone connectivity and I don't think we have imap/Activesync enabled (not sure how to even check).

    I can access my OWA online at webmail.companyname.com but seeing as my login is 32 characters long and my password has upper/lower/numbers/special characters, its a pain.

    All I really care about is my work calendar. I don't even care about email, though it would be a bonus.

    My question:
    Can I either
    A) set up the exchange email settings to point to OWA login info (what Exchange server address do I use? Should I put in the Domain or leave blank?), or
    B) find an app that auto-logins into my OWA calendar?


    THANKS FOR ANY AND EVERY SUGGESTION!

    Hi.

    Have you tried entering webmail.company.com as the exchange address? Then for domain that is whatever your login domain is at work for your email so usually in the form domain\accountname. You will also need to use the SSL login too. As for your username and password you will only need to enter these once to setup, it will save them and whenever the password expires you just need to change it.

    If it works then you can choose not to sync your mail if you don't want it to.

    Hi.

    Have you tried entering webmail.company.com as the exchange address, then for domain that is whatever your login domain is at work (or domain for email if different) so in normal Windows terms domain\accountname. You will also need to use the SSL login too. As for your username and password you will only need to enter these once to setup, it will save them and whenever the password expires you just need to change it.

    unfortunately, yes. I tried webmail.companyname.com and owa.companyname.com. I've tried leaving the domain blank and using domain\accountname for the login or seperating the two.

    :(

    Thanks for the reply!
