(FAQ) How do I set-up ActiveSync on my Android device?

How do I synchronize an Android device with an MDaemon user's email, contacts, and calendars wirelessly without the need for third party software?

ActiveSync Implementation Requirement

Please Note:

  • Be sure you have a complete back up of your contacts/calendars before synchronizing the first time. You can consult your device’s manual for instructions on how to back up your device.
  • The initial sync with ActiveSync server will be a one way sync from the server to the device! After the initial syncronization, the sync will become two way.
  • ActiveSync is a web-service extension, and will not work if your web-server (such as WorldClient) is not running on port 80 (for http) and/or port 443 (for https).
  • ActiveSync will not work on other ports.
