AM with GMail corporate via Exchange
« on: August 16, 2014, 08:36:42 pm »
Sorry if this has been addressed in another post, but I didn't see anything in search.

I've started using AM recently & my company has switched to the corporate version of GMail. This allows exchange access via  Unfortunately, AM has an issue with connecting to this server.  It complains about "Unknown server response".  Other mail clients that support exchange work fine, such as Samsung's email or MailWise, but I prefer the AM interface & looking to purchase it if I can get this to work.  I've tried the various options (eg SSL strict, etc), but still same error.

I can use IMAP connection just fine, but the problem with that is I don't get the company's global address book when composing a message.  That's why I need exchange access.

It's ActiveSync vs. Exchange Web Services (EWS) again.

ActiveSync comes with complicated licensing requirements (from Microsoft), so I chose to use EWS instead. Dealing with ActiveSync licensing is just too difficult for a guy in his bedroom.

Some companies and people who develop email apps have ActiveSync licenses (Samsung, HTC, Sony, LG... Enhanced Email, Moxier Mail, TouchDown)...

Some don't, and choose EWS instead (yours truly, MailDroid...)

Standards are great. Everyone should have his own.
