Re: Picked up a new Exchange mail client
You don't need it for tasks or notes, there a great free client called Exchange Notes and Tasks on Googleplay. Its what I use now. Samdung app... ever try hitting the reply button or the forward button and see how long it takes to actually switch screens? This is only when I'm in my corporate EAS account, not my IMAP accounts.

One of the subnets traverses the VPN and it uses local, private DNS servers on each side of the VPN. It's how we connect to all servers and intranet sites and you can't join Windows domains unless your primary DNS is one of the Windows domain DNS servers. When I connect to that subnet, the Samdung mail client doesn't connect to my Exchange server.
If I connect to the guest network on a different subnet, using public DNS servers, and NOT traversing the VPN, the Samdung app works. That's pretty useless for me, as I can't access our servers or intranets on that subnet, by design. With Touchdown and 9 Exchange Active Sync, it makes no difference at all how I connect; it works under all circumstances. This is a Samdung issue and you can bet they'd have no clue if I were to call them. They'll just tell me it's my network - ya right.
Touchdown is highly configurable, almost to highly, but the UI is a huge fail and of such poor design it makes you wonder who built the app. It's completely disjunct and has no fluidity whatsoever.
