What are the ways to synchronize emails in the Mail for Exchange client?

After installing the Mail for Exchange (MfE) client or creating MfE mailbox the first full synchronization will occur automatically. Some devices have an option to do Full resync manually, for example on Nokia E63.

The following lists the three ways to synchronize your emails, contacts, and calendar items within the MfE client:

A. By default, Always On will be the synchronization schedule and you will synchronize automatically when new mail data (emails, contacts, calendar items) is created or sent from the Exchange server or from your device.

B. You can change synchronization to a timed interval and your device will synchronize on that time value.  For example on the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic device:

  1. Press Menu
  2. Select Applications.
  3. Select Mail for Exchange
  4. Select OptionsEdit profile
  5. Select Sync schedule
  6. Select Peak Sync Schedule
  7. Select the time interval (for example 1 hour) you want the synchronization to occur

C. You can change the schedule to Manual which will require you to manually synchronize every time you want your data.

  1. Open your MfE client
  2. Select Options
  3. Select Synchronize e-mail
