Z10 & Exchange



As Windows phone 7 & 8 dont support syncing Outlook notes over exchange server i am looking for to change to a different system.

I had a look at the Z10; It does look really nice but no one was able to tell me aboult is sync capability with MS exchange server including Email, Tasks, Notes, Calendar & Contacts.

Does Z10 suport fileformats like PDF, XLS and DOC?


Any chance to get this information here?

Re: Z10 & Exchange

Hi and Welcome to the Community!


The Z10 comes with the Documents To Go Premium app, which includes the ability to render PDF, XLS, and DOC.


If you have BES-10 (not prior!), then the Z10 can integrate with BES and include (I am 99% sure) "notes" synchronization. Without BES, you are limited to the capabilities of ActiveSync, which includes Contact and Calendar (and sometimes Tasks)...but that is of course against the server, not the Outlook client, and depends on working against a compatible server environment.

While I don't want to tell you or your IT folks how you should be installing things, one part of your wording concerns me...there never should be a direct OTA sync against your MS Exchange Server...that specific server really should be protected within your internal environment. Rather, you should face to the internet gateways (e.g., POP, IMAP, OWA, BES) that will allow raw internet access to your email environment. Hopefully I've simply misunderstood your words, but it raised a concern to me


Good luck!
