Whaddya know? Configuring Exchange Server using IMAP SSL

The iPhone has arrived and the corporate world is now starting to configure their existing messaging infrastructure allowing employees to sync up their iPhone’s.I want to stress that IMAP4 should not be enabled without using SSL! Sending information in clear text is not recommended. I will be referencing the IMAP4 port 993 later in this article. I will step through the different actions taken for a non-clustered Exchange 2003 system. Enabling IMAP:

I don't know what I'm doing wrong not able to work my iPhone to our Exchange Server 2003. I've used the server for Pocket PDA and it working ok. I was able to successfully authenticate when I configured my iPhone for Exchange Server 2003 but no message and can't send e-mail. Though I test the same approach for Exchange Server 2007, it work just fine.

I guess there is something wrong with my Exchange Server 2003 so I have to wait to upgrade this to Exchange Server 2007. For the mean time, I need to use my iPhone to read and send email using my Exchange Server 2003 account. So I configured my iPhone using secured IMAP protocol, fast and secured as well.

This is the most comprehensive documents I've found in the Internet. Configuring Exchange Server using IMAP SSL

Frequent Account Lockout in Active Directory

I have a user in Windows Pro 7, and Windows Server 2003 environment that is frequently account locked out. I tried many different scenarios to resolve this account lockout issue, from resetting his password, changing a new password, remove and re-join the domain, rebooting the workstation and active directory servers.
