    Does anyone know if you can sync Exchange Tasks/Notes with OS4 ?

    I know you can add multiple exchange accounts but the notes sync is something a lot of people have been asking for.

    Looking at my Google accounts, Exchange does not have Notes, but IMAP does have Notes.

    Not sure what you mean. Exchange also supports IMAP.

    What he means is, when you set up Gmail, you can do it one of three ways:

    1) Via Google's Exchange. This does not have notes functionality.

    2) Pressing the Gmail set up button to set up IMAP. This DOES have notes functionality, but not contacts.

    3) Selecting "Other". This will probably not have notes functionality.

    shouldn't confuse Exchange and IMAP.

    MS Exchange Server supports IMAP connections to clients on the same network but that is quite different from the iPhone's options.

    Exchange Activesync on iPhone currently alllows mail, calendars and contacts. Would be cool if they added tasks as well - though the iPhone doesn't have a built in tasks app, I guess they could use notes app to sync with tasks if they wanted.

    Has anyone added an activesync account on 4.0 and seen more than mail/cal/contacts available as options?
