    Hello,
    I just myself a new Sammy GS2. Android 2.3 (Wish it had the version with Google Video Chat Support). This is my first android phone and i thinking i am bonding well with it :)

    Problem 1
    Email :
    My company runs exchange 2003 with support for OWA. I have been able to configure my device to receive email via wireless. I downloaded K-9 and touch down android. However, i cannot configure my email to retrieve email on HPPP using OWA. can somebody please help me with this settings using any of the apps mentioned above? Please note - we do not have POP3 enabled so the only way to get outlook emails over http is OWA.

    Problem 2
    Battery: Battery that can last me two days without charge.


    information
    OWA Web Address

    https://xxxx.mycompany.com/exchange

    So I just tried to set up an Outlook Web Access account (OWA) on my Nexus and had a few bumps, but figured it out with the following steps.
    My company uses Exchange 2007, but I know that it should work with 2003.

    1. click on 'Accounts & Sync' - select Exchange Active sync
    2. type your email and password
    3. click manual setup on the bottom left
    4. select 'Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync'
    5. change Domain\Username. For example: domain\jdoe
    6. change server to 'mail.company.org/exchange' or whatever your IT folks have configured it to.
    7. check both boxes below and click next
    8. set up other options.

    Hope this works....:D

    As always with battery life concerns, look at what's chewing through your battery and address your specific battery hogs. Your particular usage plays a major part in battery life. Try looking at the other battery life threads for reference.

    You won't get very far by randomly applying "fixes" that may or may not be relevant to you.

    If your server has ActiveSync you can set it up with a 3rd party app or even with native support.

    As for the battery, good luck. I don't know of any Android phones or any smart phones in general that get two days of battery life on one charge.
