    Hi Everyone,

    I know there are MANY threads out there on Exchange connectivity and I am having the same problems most have identified already; to wit, I cannot connect to Exchange using my exchange address and login. I have gone through many of the suggestions, but still cannot get connected.

    The Droid will let me randomly connect sometimes - but I get no messages, contacts or calendar information. Using the same account, try different settings (uncheck SSL etc) and I get "cannot connect to server" msgs.

    I have deleted and redone the Sync account many times, sometimes connecting, most times telling me I cannot connect. Other times I get an invalid certificate error.

    Whats frustrating is that I am not getting a consistent error. The iPhone users in the office have had no problems connecting (I'm definitely hearing about that) so I'm not sure what the issue is. I have tried the variations of the address/login suggested in the forums with no success.

    We are using the online Microsoft hosted products, including Exchange. One thing I haven't read on the forum is anyone using the hosted products from Microsoft.

    Any thoughts/advice would be greatly appreciated. I would rather not purchase a third party app to make this work, but if that is my only choice I will. Love the phone, just can't wait to have it working to its full potential.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Have you tried creating an active policy for th droid? You can download a trial version of touchdown? I bought touchdown and it works fine..

    i sound like a broken record, but please just get touchdown. it's not free but what is your time worth? the functionality of touchdown is better as well. if it doesn't solve your problem, uninstall for a refund. you can always go back to the native app once google fixes its sh**.

    Active policy needs to be created on the exchange serve.. ask an IT guy to see if he can do it for you.. Would recommend touchdown..
