ActiveSync for MDaemon: BlackBerry 10 Setup

MDaemon Messaging Server now includes support for Microsoft's ActiveSync®, which is a separately licensed over-the-air (OTA) ActiveSync (AirSync) server. ActiveSync provides synchronization of a user's default email, calendar, and contact data between their MDaemon/Webmail (WorldClient) account and an ActiveSync capable device.

ActiveSync for MDaemon installs along with MDaemon but it is a separate product from MDaemon and will only run as a trial for 60 days. After that, a one-time fee is required. The trial begins when you install MDaemon and enable ActiveSync for the first time.

Enabling ActiveSync in MDaemon

MDaemon - ActiveSync

In MDaemon, ActiveSync can be enabled via a checkbox under the Setup | Mobile Device Management | ActiveSync menu.

NOTE: ActiveSync is a web-service extension and will not work if your web server (such as WorldClient) is not running on port 80 (for http) and/or port 443 (for https). ActiveSync will not work on other ports.

    WARNING: When you enable ActiveSync for MDaemon the first time:
  • It will wipe your existing contact and calendar data and replace it with your MDaemon data. Therefore, be sure you have a complete backup of your device before synchronizing for the first time. Consult your device's manual for instructions on how to back up your device.
  • All first time syncs with ActiveSync will be a one-way sync from the server to the device. All subsequent synchronizations will be two-way.
