ARCHIVED: At IU, how do I configure Windows Mobile 6 or 6.1 for Exchange ActiveSync?

At Indiana University, to set up Exchange ActiveSync on your device running Windows Mobile 6 or 6.1:

Windows Mobile 6 or 6.1 Standard

  1. Open the ActiveSync application on the device.
  2. Press Menu, and then select Add Server Resource.
  3. In the "Server Address" field, enter www.exchange.iu.edu.
