| | OWA: Cannot connect to email server...
Please Login to Remove!
I just upgraded from Exchange 2003 to 2010.
I got my new BES server working, but I have 1 user who does not want to be on the BES server and use OWA portal instead. Under 2003 we did this via the BIS server. No matter what I put in the settings, I get the following error:
Cannot connect to email server or invalid server name: Please verify the Outlook Web Access URL. If the error persists contact .....
I try and configure the account using: Blackberry Sprint Mail website instead of the device itself. Does not make a difference.
I tried <domain>\<usernmame>, just <username>, and the entire email address as a possible username. All failed.
OWA does work. I've been able to connect android phones, iphones, and outlook clients via RDP over HTTP.
This is the only issue I am having.
I am using a wildcard certificate that was issued by a third party. This was the suggestions approach by the Microsoft Deployment guide.
I've tried many different message threads and none of them have been any helpful.
What I really need is a more meaningful errormessage from the online BIS website.
