    I have my Exchange account set up seamlessly with my mac (Snow Leopard), Mail, contacts, and calendars all sync without an issue, but I'm having one heck of a time getting it set up with my iphone and/or ipad.

    *I've searched quite a bit on how to get this to all sync up, but nothing has worked.

    *Below are what I believe to be the relevant settings in the OSX Mail app, as well as the "About" from my outlook web app.

    *IMAP/POP are also disabled by default.. so I can't automatically go that way.. but like I said, syncing to the mail app on OSX was a breeze.. why is it different for iOS?

    *I recognize that the server seems to be a .corp, which would possibly mean I need to be on our VPN to access it, but it works just fine from my personal laptop with no VPN access, even pushing e-mails to the OSX mail app.

    Any help anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated. Our company has kind of a "don't ask, don't tell" thing going on when it comes to syncing personal devices to our e-mails.. they don't officially support any devices that the company doesn't own, but if we can figure out how to get them up and running ourselves, then that's totally fine. Either way, contacting IT about this isn't really an option.

    What have you actually tried in the exchange setting on your iphone?

    Email: should be obvious!

    Server: mail.*******.com

    Domain: can leave blank.

    Username: Again obvious.

    Password: Ditto.

    Those settings should work.

    You can leave the domain blank for gmail and such but it does matter for Exchange. It's frequently the problem that people run into setting it up.
