    You will need to know the server domain, possible the server address, your user name, and password. It will be the exchange account you need to select and if you have the other information, it should work.

    Do you know if they already have the exchange server set up to push mail? Does your company already use Windows Mobile smartphones and get their email through exchange push?

    I emailed my boss asking him if the exchange server was set up to push and he emailed me back saying exchange does not push

    Exchange can be set-up to push email... just sounds like yours is not set-up.

    Sorry, but until exchange is set-up to push you will not be able to get your email from it OTA.

    Actually I found a third party app that not only pulled my mail over, it was able to pull my calendar (though only for the current day), my contacts AND my memos. I was impressed with it and the developer is VERY responsive. I was unable to get my account set up via Android's built in capability even having all the needed information, so I'm pretty sure my company does not have ActiveSync activated.

    The company that made the program I'm referring to is Moonrug Mobile. I found it in the Market but they also have a site, Moonrug Mobile | Android Exchange Application

    For those of you wanting to sync your droid to your exchange server without compromising security features. Goodlink will have your solution ready by end of November.
