iPad ActiveSync Configuration for Exchange 2013


Active Exchange services, see Add Hosted Services.



This article shows how to configure Activesync for Exchange on an iPad



1. From the home screen of the iPad locate and click on the Settings icon.



2. Click on Mail, Contacts, Calendars, then click Add Account...



3. From the available account types, select Microsoft Exchange.



4. The setup will prompt for the account settings, enter the following information:

  1. Email: The primary email alias of the Exchange mailbox.
  2. Domain: cloud.local
  3. Username: The primary email alias of the Exchange mailbox.
  4. Password: Password associated with the email address (Verify username/password in webmail).
  5. Description: Select a unique, distinctive name to designate the account.

Verify the settings against the image below, then click Next.



5. After a few moments the Exchange settings will come up again, this time displaying a server field:

Server: ""

Once entered hit the Next button again.



6. The Exchange account will now ask for what items to sync. To get the full Exchange experience, it is recommended to sync both Contacts, and Calendars to the iPhone. However when doing so, the device will warn that doing so may create duplicate contacts/calendar entries in the event of any preexisting items. First time setups can ignore this warning and erase that data, users with preexisting items should determine the best option for their use.

Once this preference is determined, click the Save button to finish the setup.




7. Optionally the account sync settings may be reviewed and tweaked, by clicking on the account name from the Mail, Contacts, Calendars section.



8. Two additional options may be configured on this screen, Mail Days to Sync, and Mail Folders to Push. Increasing the metric on either option will result in more mail data being stored on the iPad, in addition to potentially longer, and more frequent synchronizations.

    This is one good description of a guideline. Auto sync makes our life quite easy as it is easier for us to track our different applications. This sync also prompts notifications which alert you to what is happening. For this  paper writing service reviews might also be of help to you.
