First, lets talk environment. Exchange 2010 RTM, Windows 2008 R2. Mailbox and CAS are 2010. The mobile device is a Windows Mobile 6.1 - This requires a Windows Mobile 6.1 or better device. No iPhone, no Blackberries have this functionality.

Configure Acticesync to your Exchange 2010 CAS server(s), and the next time you go into text messages, your device will prompt you asking if you want to sync texts with Outlook. When you accept this, you will get an email like this one:

When you log into OWA (or Outlook 2010 when available) you can send texts to contacts from OWA:
Exchange uses Activesync to instruct your device to text on your behalf.
When a reply is received to your phone, the next activesync (aka, when you get an email) will pull that text into your inbox:
Users can disable/turn off/edit this feature in OWA options:
Of course, this can be disabled entirely for all users of a CAS server using:

thanks for your infos.
but this doesn´t work for me.
I donwloaded the OutlookLiveSetup.cab. (The Name of the Download File was OutlookMobileSetup.cab).
after restart, nothing happend.
is there anything I have to do on the server? or any options at the mobile device?
I`m using HTC Touch Diamond with Windows Mobile 6.1. Server 2008 R2 and Exchange 2010.
MRpro, you may have to remove the current AS partnership with your mailbox and then setup AS again with the phone. I've noticed during testing that the "New Text Message" button in OWA does not show up when updating the cab file to with an existing AS partnership.
thanks for your help, cannedsoda. after updating the device with the new outlook mobile update, everything worked, without removing the partnership. great feature, sending and recieving SMS directly in outlook 2010!!
Can I sync Outlook Mobile 2010 with Exchange 2007?
nooryus, yes it should work with Exchange 2007.
Have you actually done it? Any issues that I should be aware of?
No, not yet - I don't have a WM 6.5 device :(
