iPhone works with MobileMe, Microsoft Exchange, and many of the most popular email systems. MobileMe and Microsoft Exchange provide not only email, but contact and calendar information that can be synced to iPhone automatically, over the air. MobileMe can also sync your bookmarks on iPhone with Safari on a Mac, or with Safari or Microsoft Internet Explorer on a PC. You set up MobileMe, Exchange, and other email accounts directly on iPhone.
iPhone uses the Exchange ActiveSync protocol to sync email, calendars, and contacts with the following versions of Microsoft Exchange:
Exchange Server 2003 Service Pack 2
Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1
For many popular email accounts, iPhone automatically enters most of the settings for you.
