    Good For Enterprise was used by my previous employer in a similar fashion - and always broke for months after any major Android update.

    Nine and, I believe, Touchdown, does all of this directly without requiring yet another layer (such as MobileIron).

    So long as corporate IT is running a current version of Exchange Server, these third-party tools are mostly a waste of money, IMO.

    I would think Touchdown should fix it, not Google. I have a similar issue with Sunrise, where I can't view or update my Exchange calendar entries through it. OTOH, I can access them just fine from the native Android calendar app. That's probably a compatibility issue. Google has updated their exchange connector, so I wouldn't be surprised if apps that use it need to be updated.

    For me, I don't need Sunrise anymore. The updated Android calendar is good enough for me now.
    Download Mail Wise from the play store. It is the best email client. It supports exchange, imap, pop3, etc and syncs into the calendar as well. It also has a nice built in security bypass feature.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Like I said, however, I'm pretty happy with the built-in Android apps (i.e. Gmail and Calendar) for handling my Exchange needs.

    I am impressed with mail wise. It's a very clean interface.

    While I'm stuck on KitKat I will use this!

    Hi all,

    I am new to this forum and time passed now, however I couln`t find a way to make my phone and exchange working well.
    I have upgraded to Lollipop and after few days my exchange lost connectivity and stopped syncing over WIFI.
    I just found out that under settings, more networks, mobile networks, name of internet access points - reset to default resolves all my issues regarding WIFI , sync and exchange.

    rgds, Manuel

    Hi folks,

    I upgrade to Official lollipop 5.0 and I lost Exchange account connectivity but nine mail client is connect to my Exchange account and sync to my mails. Why nine connect and sync my company Exchange mail account but original email application of Android 5.0 not connect and sync to my Exchange account with same settings?

    I had this issue, but turns out my Exchange services app background data was restricted (Settings > Data usage > Restrict app background data)

    If you can connect via wifi, but not cellular data, this might be the issue.

    Gmail app crashes with my Exchange 2003 server so I use Nine for that account. Previously on KitKat my email stuck in the outbox, may be time to replace Exchange 2003.

    Posted via the Android Central App
    Installed 5.1 and decided to try Gmail for my Exchange 2003 account and it is working properly now.

    I have the same problem with my Samsung Galaxy S5. After upgrading with Android 5.0, my Exchange server settings for work is stop working and nothing could fixed it. I have been doing lots of research online and even call my phone provider Sprint, but nothing works. For now, I use internet access to enter my Exchange Server address. (eg... email.lawa.org ) for an example. It works. Try it and let the others know.

    I have a hosted Exchange account that I have been using for years. Worked fine on 4.4.4 on my S5. When I upgraded to 5.0 there is a constant handshake when using "PUSH" email. If you chooses any time interval other than "push" it works fine. Had no issues getting it set up and working other than the push issue.
    Stock S5 using stock apps.

    I've switched to Nine which for now has fixed things. But this is a Lollipop issue given it obviously doens't play nice with even the stock email app (which worked perfectly before on my work's Exchange servers). We use iPhone's, blackberries, Samsungs, you name it, all seem to work fine with their stock email programs as 4.4.4 did. The only change was upgrading to 5.0, and it broke (and clearly not just for me). Touchdown stopped working as well.

    Here's an interesting link where some are surmising that there are certain TLS settings within Exchange Servers that would have to be adjusted due to how Lollipop was implemented.

    https://code.google.com/p/android/is...etail?id=79389

    In any event, as mentioned above Nine is working (and you'll see when you download it that they patched it to "fix the SSL issue with Lollipop") ... maybe Google can do the same with their stock email app?
    I've used Touchdown for the past 4-5 years and it did what I needed. However, since using it on my Nexus 6, it would randomly sync, and, at times, not allow me to send a message, or receive a message, until it was finished syncing. This was annoying but was also leading to excess data usage.

    I am on a 2 GB plan with Sprint and Touchdown would routinely use 700-800 MB in one month. Most of my email is just plain with little or no graphics.

    Yesterday, at the start of my new cycle, it used 68 MB.

    I decided to look for alternatives and Nine was highly recommended. It was easy to setup, since I already had the settings from Touchdown.

    Bottom line, it plays much better with Lollipop and looks better too. I never had any overages from using Touchdown, but Nine has the potential to save me 500-600 MB of data usage. That's huge when you're on a 2 GB plan.

    I was planning to wait till the end of my trial, but I had a Google Play credit from a Chromecast purchase just sitting on my account. Very easy decision.

    Guys, I think I found a solution to the wifi exchange problem. Long story short...

    Go to: Settings/More Networks/Mobile Networks/Access Point Names/"whatever is first on the list"
    You should see something like this:

    Do not install 5.0 if you use Exchange...-screenshot_2015-05-11-20-36-03.jpg

    Copy the Proxy address circled with red color.

    Now go to: Settings/Wi-Fi and push and hold your wifi network name untill a menu opens. Click "Modify network config" and you should see something like this:

    Do not install 5.0 if you use Exchange...-screenshot_2015-05-11-20-35-11.jpg

    Chose "Show advanced options" and set Proxy to "Proxy Auto-Config" (by default it is set to "None").
    Paste the proxy address you copied before into field called "PAC URL".

    Thats it...
    Your exchange should start working instantly.

    Well I accepted the AT&T push of Lollipop 5.0 to my Galaxy S4 and yup, Exchange calendar appointments don't sync anymore. Email sync okay, just not the calendar items from Outlook. Have looked through this thread but haven't seen any solutions. Anybody figured out how to fix this issue?

    Had an issue with my work college's Galaxy S4 (5.0.1) using the native email (gmail app).
    Outlook app was used as the alternative.

    No issues with Exchange using the native Email app on my Xperia Z2 (5.0.2) though

    I had horrible issues with a Note 4. My 4.4.4 worked perfectlyon my Note 3 with my exchange server and now with a Note 4 I was dead in the water and didnt have contacts for 2 weeks. I talked to Samsung directly and found that in my wifi settings I had the SMART NETWORK SWITCH box checked. It will "automatically switch between WiFi and mobile networks, and also between 2.4GHZ and 5GHZ bands, to maintain a stable Internet connection. This was a massive problem when you have a huge number of contacts (I have close to 6k). Basically everytime it would try to pull data from the server on the PUSH setting it would download maybe 4 to 5 contacts then lose connection and stop pulling. Once this box was no longer checked my contacts worked perfectly. In 1 hour I got more contacts then I did in 3 days before when the box was checked.

    This is the reason I have given up on a Samsung Galaxy S6 edge. It does not work with Exchange but an iPhone helped me save the day.

    Matter of taste - I really liked having two separate email apps, with different kinds of notifications etc. Just as I may dress differently for work, be in a different location, behave differently, I like my work environment to be different than my personal environment. So different email clients made sense to me. When I tried adding my exchange account to gmail, I found that they all mixed together, and I couldn't figure out how to view ONLY my work emails or ONLY my personal emails.
    So I disentanged that (which isn't trivial, BTW) and downloaded the Outlook app.
    Now I look at my calendar, where I DO want all my appointments in one place, because I'll risk missing something if I have to flip back and forth between two calendar apps. But it seems that I can't have that anymore. It was one of the great advantages of the Android calendar, that I could have my Google calendar and my Exchange calendar all in one place.
    Google is actually punishing me for not wanting to use the Gmail app for everything! That's petty and bullying behavior.

    You can get GMail to only display mail from one account, if you haven't figured it out already. Open the menu by tapping the three horizontal bar icon on the top left. Tap the down arrow right below your account picture and select the account you wish to view the mail for.

    You can also use Inbox for GMail to manage your Google mail. That's what I do, while using GMail for my work mail address only. This way I can view all my calendar entries on Google Calendar.

    Just an update, gmail 6.4 and newer works with all exchange activesync servers, even the weird ones like imail and kerio mail!

    However i am not sure if Google Calendar will show or update the eas calendars.

    Now you can have a true unified inbox (gmail hotmail exchange!). The gmail apps search functionality only searches the cached emails, not everything on the exchange the server. IMHO no android app can search emails on the server except for Microsoft's outlook app.
