According to the info from Kerio aslong as you can connect to the web mail from your iPhone you should be able to set up active sync between the server and your phone.

I have no problem accessing the server from my iPhone but I can not n any way get active sync to work. I have an IMAP account on my phone and that works correctly.

One strange thing is that I don't get any error messegas when trying to access the server. It just checks the Inbox and changes the update time. No error what so ever.

I'm lost. Are you?

Can you get in with secure web, i.e. https://yourkerioserver

No I can not eventhough I have Secure http turned on. Something else I have to do on the server side?

Could be a certificate issue. Is your SSL self-generated or did you acquire a 'real' one? If the latter: does it support mobile devices? For example the Geotrust QuickSSL cert does not, while the QuickSSL Premium does.

It's a self generated certificate (web3). As you point out this might be the problem as I get a warning that the certificate is not trusted everytime I sign in tp my IMAP account.

So ordering a certificate from QuicSSL could fix my problem?

ActiveSync does require the device to have a valid certificate (on Windows Mobile devices, I assume here it's the same on the iPhone). ActiveSync will not ask something like "SSL not trusted, continue anyway?" as some other programs or the browser may do.

You could also import the self-signed certificate onto the iPhone. If the iPhone has an option to manage certificates (I dunno, don't have an iPhone). You would need to re-import your self-singed certificate every year though, since it's only valid for 1 year. Especially bothersome if you have many mobile users to worry about.

Easiest (but not free) indeed is to purchase a 'real' certificate that is also supported on mobile devices out-of-the-box. Then you'd have to worry about nothing (except extending the server certificate once it expires).

The Geotrust 'QuickSSL' certificate is actually NOT working on many mobile devices, you'd need the 'QuickSSL Premium' certificate (just a tad more expensive).

You could try turning ssl off on the iPhone to see if it works. Perhaps there are some firewall/router issues that need to be dealt with.

not a good idea as activesync in not encrypted.

try using the iPhone browser and going to https://yourserver.com/server.cer

it should then ask you to import the certificate.

Is the port forwarded to the server?
