    I was told that "forms based authenitacion" must be unchecked in order for
    mobil phones to work, especially the iphone. Is that true?

    I can't get our iphones to work, i also hate to turn off forms based
    authenication because if removes the ability to log into your an email
    account when visiting on anothers desktop.

    I now have the iphone working. Apparently "forms based authenication" does
    not matter with them. I tried it both ways.

    Wonder it it matters on windows mobile devices?

  3. Hello Joe,

    Thanks for your post. I am glad to know you have resolved the issue.

    Actually, the process of syncing iPhone is similar with normal syncing
    Windows Mobile device and as I know, the configuration on server side is no
    difference from Windows Mobile based device. To add some additional
    information, I'd like suggest you check the following articles, they
    contains the introductions and configuration of iPhone for Microsoft
    Exchange Server.

    Regarding how to set iPhone with Exchange server, you can refer to the
    following articles from Apple:

    iPhone and Microsoft Exchange Server

    Here is an related article:

    Exchange ActiveSync and Outlook Mobile Access errors occur when SSL or
    forms-based authentication is required for Exchange Server 2003

    Hope this helps.
