It is possible to setup your iPhone to synchronize data with Kolab Now via ActiveSync. This can be a preferred solution for some users, and will enable some mobile apps to synchronize Email, Contacts, Calendars and tasks. Here is an example of how to do it.

Make sure that your iPhone is iOS v11 or later, and that you have Mobile Synchronization enabled in your subscription.


Open the Settings app on the iPhone and select Accounts. If this is the first account that you set up, then the Add Account screen will show up. If you already have accounts, you have to press Add Account to create a new account.

In the Add Account screen click Exchange.


In the Exchange screen, fill in your Email, and a description. When clicking Next, you get an option to select Configure Manually.

Fill in your configuration values in the following screen.
Note that your domain name (second part of the email address) might be different from the server domain name.In this example, the domain name is @kolab.org, but the server name is always apps.kolabnow.com.

Click Save, and get the option to select the types of data that you want to synchronize.

In the Advanced Settings your connection should already be set for SSL. If not, you need to select that.

When the account is created successfully on the iPhone, you can login to the web client (https://kolabnow.com/apps) and find the device in:

Settings -> Activesync -> Devices


Here you select the folders (Mail folders, Addressbooks, Calendars, etc..) that you want to be synchronized.

Now it’s time to celebrate that you have access to your Kolab Now Mail, Addressbooks and Calendars on your iPhone.
