I have an iPhone (1G) and I have it correctly setup to use my enterprise network and Exchange Server.
The problem is that outside my corporate network I'm not able to use the same settings, because outside of the network I need an "Exchange Proxy Setting"; Outlook provides this option and it works:

Account Settings -> Exchange account properties -> Connection tab -> Outlook Anywhere -> Enable Connect to Microsoft Exchange using HTTP -> Exchange Proxy Settings... -> Configure your Proxy server -> Ok

I can't find a way to configure this same proxy on the iPhone. I don't want to use it as a SMTP/IMAP account, first of all because I'm not allowed to do it and second because I want to use Exchange server.

Is there a way to enable/workaround this configuration on the iPhone so I can connect to my corporate Exchange server from "anywhere" ?

    same for me, I need the exchange client to behave like the outlook client, allowing for 2 possibilities: one way to connect to the server over the intranet (different server name, and not over http because that would go out straight through the http proxy and get lost in the internet), and an alternative when I'm not on the intranet, but anywhere else via the internet - here http access works just great

    not sure if apple is serious about the enterprise market, this and other "small" issues make me rather believe not (yet)...

    keeping my fingers crossed, but add this to the push mode/battery problem, and my iPhone is only so far from ebay

    One way you can solve this problem is by setting up a VPN if your company has one and your user-id is set to access VPN. You can do that by using General > Network > VPN and then choose Add VPN Configuration. For the support article, please refer:

    I know this is not what you are looking for. You are looking to configure email client using exchange proxy over http. I am also looking for the same solution.
