  2. ActiveSync for MDaemon

How do I configure Outlook 2013/2016/2019/2021 to connect to an MDaemon account using ActiveSync?

With a valid ActiveSync license installed and enabled, MDaemon users can connect to the MDaemon server using Outlook ActiveSync profiles in Outlook 2013/2016/2019/2021.

ActiveSync connections from Outlook to MDaemon require a SSL certificate in order to connect.  If a self signed certificate is installed on the server, the client will be able to connect, however, Outlook will display a certificate error.  If the certificate is installed to the client as a trusted source, the error will not appear.

Please be sure to apply the latest updates to Microsoft Office.
