Exchange ActiveSync on Belle - Microsoft Apps

[ Edited ]

It was a nice candy that Nokia took away?

 

When it announce - "An updated version of Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, which brings improved search capabilities, an integrated conversation vew and support for multiple Exchange accounts."

 

RE: http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/news/item/13253_Microsoft_Business_Apps_for_Sy.php

 

I have Belle on my N8 and Microsoft Apps.

 

I set-up one Exchange Active Sync account and I try to set up another one.

 

I am faced with the same issue as pre-belle MFE. "Maximum number of mailboxes defined. Delete an exisitng mailbox and try again"

 

This is disappointing... offer a feature and not deliver?

you need to have the microsoft office mobile apps installed to get anything extra. At this stage they are not avaialble for an N8. Its my understandiung that you get an improved exchange activesync only after the MS office mobile apps is installed.

 

You will have exchange active sync now but not the improved or enhanced version.

Whether is it the most recent announcement or not is not the issue, Multiple Exchange ActiveSync is still an essential feature that Nokia Exchange for ActiveSync lacks.

 

A) Android and iPhone has it... I bet Windows Phone too.... so might as well give us the option. Most people may have more than 1 Exchange ActiveSync account and does not want to rely on Nokia Servers for IMAP.

 

Though, I reckon that the Nokia Mail Servers are working a bit better this time around after the Belle Update.

 

B) Calendar collaboration. Nokia needs to make changes to Nokia Calendar to allow it to send ICS files (not VCS as original) that will work directly with Outlook/Google Calendar which default reads & opens ICS files as meeting requests. It is easier to have a field ready in Calendar Entry: "Invitees" and keep these invitees in the Calendar DB as well.

So, "MS Office Mobile Apps" will have support for Multiple Exchange ActiveSync?

Belle by itself doesnt. MS Office mobile apps is support to give extra apps and enhanced support to exchange active sync, whether or not that includes Multiple exchange activesync accounts, I cant tell you. all the info i have read from official sites eg. not the forum you referred to or the AAS page, is that you get an enhanced version after installation of the MS Office Apps. Currently these apps are not available for the N8, E6 or the nokia 500, but is going to be released later. it is available for the E7 and a few of the others now. If I had belle (being i'm in australia its not released here yet), then i would be installing and would certainly be able to advise you accordingly. I certainly have seen unofficial sites mention it though but it always tied in to the MS Office Mobile apps. Hope that clears some things up. You will have to wait though for the MS Office apps to be released.
