Man, is Android really lacking MS Exchange Integration
But I can't believe Google has the Android operating system, and Verizon has put this phone on the market, and it lacks good Exchange integration.
First, the configuration of the email client is not straight forward, I've read numerous forums where people had a hard time getting it to interface w/ their Exchange servers.
Then, you have to setup your contact manager to access your Exchange contacts separately.
Within your email, you can't accept calendar appoints. You can't search within email, can't sort by sender or subject.
There's a pretty good 3rd party app for Exchange email from Touchdown, but should we really need to bu...
From what I've been reading, Android works great with certain types of Microsoft exchange and not well with others. I don't know enough about the program to know what the deciding factor is.
I think it is a non-issue and should not have been posted at all, but as long as one is casting blame don't blame VZW...blame Google. Ever since the V710, all one hears is how controlling Verizn is. If Verizon refused to launch this handset due to its "lacking MS Exchange Integration" you better believe there would be an uproar from the gallery.
Try Googling "Droid software update December 11th" You should be able to find the letter that I mentioned.
Hope that helps at least a little.
The Exchange short-comings I complained of are still there, no ability to accept calendar meeting invites, can't sort email by sender or subject, search button within email does a complete phone search just like main page on phone, no way to search thru your exchange email from phone.
