What is Exchange ActiveSync?
Exchange ActiveSync is a protocol which allows mobile devices to synchronize data with Exchange mailboxes. Synchronizing is a process of reconciling data between a device and the appropriate Exchange mailbox. The protocol synchronizes your mail, calendar, contacts, and tasks over the air with Microsoft Exchange Server. This connection can be done directly from the device using Wi-Fi or a cellular network.
Your device must be properly configured to connect to the Internet before using Exchange ActiveSync (VPN is not required).
Exchange ActiveSync is supported on many mobile devices. Check your device's documentation for verification of Microsoft's Direct Push technology.
For more about ActiveSync, see the Microsoft TechNet Exchange ActiveSync FAQ.
