I am not all that familiar with how or what the steps are to set up activesync on the new Z10. I know what email address I want it to recognoze and the server name yet I am unsure about the A to Z steps on were to go and how to complete...
Any help would be awesome.
Thanks in advance.

Work accounts supported by Microsoft ActiveSync If your organization doesn't use the BlackBerry Enterprise Service but does use Microsoft ActiveSync, make sure you know at least the following information from your administrator: Your username and work network password Server address
For the sake of completeness, I also add the official Outlook help on Microsoft's server that also explain how to get the server address for Android/iOS devices (process is exactly the same for a BlackBerry10 device).
connecting your BlackBerry Phone to a company Exchange email server through Outlook Web Access (or through Outlook WebApp) requires BIS, which does not exist for the Z10. As a reminder, BIS only exists for legacy devices (BlackBerry OS7 and prior).
The BIS/OWA connectivity gives email synchronization, but no calendar or contacts database access. You need to manually synchronize those two databases using the Desktop Software.
Once your Z10 is connected to your company's ActiveSync server (without BES5 and without BES10), you will have access to :
