Edge Server Address Rewriting

Address rewriting on an Edge Transport server requires that address rewriting agents

be enabled. To enable the inbound and outbound transport agents, run the following EMS

commands:

Enable-TransportAgent –Identity "Address Rewriting Inbound agent"

Enable-TransportAgent –Identity "Address Rewriting Outbound agent"

Auto discover & Active Sync

AutoDiscover

 

The Autodiscover service provides clients running Outlook 2007, Outlook 2010, and mobile

phones running Windows Mobile 6.1 or later with user profile configuration settings. To

use Autodiscover, it is necessary to either provide the user’s email address and password or

have the user’s domain credentials.

 

You can use the Test-OutLookWebServices cmdlet from the EMS to verify that the

Autodiscover

service settings are working properly

 

Test-OutlookWebServices –ClientAccessServer CAS01

 

Active Sync

 

ActiveSync allows users to sync their Windows Mobile devices with their Exchange mailboxes.

ActiveSync is optimized to work across high-latency, low-bandwidth networks, such as those

likely to be encountered across a mobile phone data connection. Exchange ActiveSync is

enabled automatically when you install the Client Access server role.

 

Can be configured from Server Configuration\Client Access > selecting Exchange ActiveSync on the lower-middle page, right-clicking on the Client Access server that you want to modify, and then clicking on Properties.

Active Sync

 

Internal URL - The URL that ActiveSync devices on the internal network use to access the Client Access server.

External URL  - The URL that ActiveSync devices on the Internet use to access the Client Access server.

 

 

On the Authentication tab, in a production environment the following should be selected if the devices have been provisioned with certificates. If they have not this will prevent all devices from connecting.

Authentication Tab

 

 

You can test ActiveSync connections with the following EMS cmdlet:

 

Test-ActiveSyncConnectivity –ClientAccessServer CAS01 –URL http://adatum.com/mail -MailboxCredential "Kim_Akers"

 

 

ActiveSync device policies

 

  • To create a policy go to Organization Configuration\Client Access node
  • In the Actions pane, click on New Exchange ActiveSync Mailbox Policy

 

 

Allow nonprovisionable devices: Allow devices that do not support all policies to sync with Exchange.

ActiveSync device policies

 

Once the policy is created you can edit the policy using the Set-ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy cmdlet.

 

 


Outlook Anywhere (RPC over HTTP)

On the Server Configuration > Client Access node, you can right click on the Exchange server and Enable to Outlook Anywhere feature.

Enable Outlook Anywhere

 

You must then enter the external URL that will be able to access the exchange server. 

 

External Host name - Outlook Anywhere

 

This can be enabled in EMS:

Enable-OutlookAnywhere –Server 'CAS1' –ExternalHostname 'mail.adatum.com' –DefaultAuthenticationMethod 'NTLM'

 

Configuring RPC Client Access

 

In Outlook > File > Account Settings > Account Settings > Select account > Change > More > Advanced > HTTP Proxy Settings 

 

The settings here should match what was setup in the enabling Outlook Anywhere feature.

The settings should pull through automatically anyway.
