To setup ActiveSync for Android you'll need the following information:

  1. Server address. It's the bold part in your Group-office url: http://your.domain.for.groupoffice/groupoffice so don't include http:// and don't include the path behind the hostname.
  2. Domain name can be left empty
  3. Whether your company or email provider requires an encrypted (SSL) connection to the mail server
  4. Your Group-Office username and password. Common mistake is that users use the e-mail address for username!

Note: The Exchange Server settings are case sensitive. Be sure to enter uppercase and lowercase letters properly.

  1. From the Applications Menu, Touch Email.
  2. Type in your email address and password. Check the box only if you want this to be your default email account. Touch Next.
  3. Touch Exchange Account.
  4. Enter your Exchange Server information and Touch Next.
  5. Your phone will check the incoming server settings.
  6. If everything is correct the Account Options screen will appear allowing you to customize your account settings.
  7. Finally, you will be asked to name this account and enter the name that will be displayed on outgoing messages. Touch Done when complete.

Note: If you are able to successfully connect an Exchange account on your phone, but your email and contacts are not syncing with your device, your company may have a security policy that prevents syncing. Click here for further troubleshooting instructions.

Some Android phones (such as Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro with Android 2.1) offer SyncML as a generic sync interface only. Enter the server address and username and password. If asked for additional server address at the calendar or contacts field: simply add "calendar" and "contacts" (without http to serveraddress) and leave the additional username / password fields empty to succeed.

You may also try one of the various Apps for SyncML, most of them allow to replace the (Funambol or memotoo -) URL with your server address.
