    iPhone 3G and Exchange Setup - Any gurus out there?

    I'm trying to setup a new iPhone for my father to work with a Microsoft Exchange account and am having trouble.

    Does anyone know what to enter for the Username when it says "Domain/User"? I've tried many combinations to no avail.

    Example:
    Email - bob@cyclones.com
    Server - mail.cyclones.com (this is what is in my Outlook setup)
    Username - bob@cyclones.com - asks for "Domain/User" same as Outlook setup.
    password - xxxxxxxx

    FYI - The mail server is NOT an SSL connection. Although this is the default in the 3G setup.

    Any other secrets?

    Thanks!

    Don't even mess with it... Exchange on an Iphone is HORRIBLE, even the new setup is so bad we just sent all of our Iphones back.

    Did it just not work? Just curious if it was something specific, or it just overall stunk?

    Overall it stinks for business use. If you get messages directly into a folder, you will not know which folder they went into, you just know you got a new message.


    Here are things you give up going from windows mobile to iphone:

    Capabilities not available on the iPhone 2.0 (but available on Windows Mobile)

    Email
    * Only the inbox can be set to synchronise – subfolders can be accessed but no synchronisation policy can be set
    * No Flagging on email
    * Cannot set Out of Office message
    * No Hot Keys for managing messages
    * Difficult to get to Global Address List
    * No support for Activesync Schedule (eg. push during work hrs – pull outside of that)
    * No Smart Filtering
    * No ability to change sort order of email messages
    * No support for Server Search of email messages
    * Trying to delete messages or move them when you don’t have connectivity generates lots of errors messages and you
    cannot actually delete or move when offline
    * Message status is not set on the server for replying/forwarding to an email, similarly the status from the server
    is not provided to the iPhone
    * You cannot automatically set attachments to download
    * There is no control over maximum attachment size
    * You can’t see the number of unread or new emails without unlocking the device

    Calendaring
    * No ability to invite attendees to a meeting
    * You cannot provide a reason for declining meetings
    * Attendee status is not available
    * There is no click through to get access to information from the GAL for a participant
    * No support for setting Out of Office message
    * You cannot delete a single occurrence of a recurring meeting – you can only delete the whole series

    Contacts
    * Cannot forward contact information via SMS or Vcard

    Security
    * Cannot enforce Storage or device encryption
    * Remote wipe doesn’t seem to be immediate and restore requires recradling to iTunes
    * PIN unlock timeout is not enforced on the iPhone
    * You have to ‘slide’ to unlock – then enter the PIN code to unlock the device

    Back to the original question, make sure you are using domain/user, and not just the username.

    I am still yet to hold an iPhone. I want to try it, but I have no desire to buy it. Anyone try a LG Dare yet? I really need something with good exchange features and it looks like ill have to break down and get a berry or other windows mobile device. I want something fun!
