Create ActiveSync Exchange Profile with one step (iOS | Android | Windows)


Once you setup your Exchange environment some users may complain that they have to follow more than one step to configure their mobile email profile using ActiveSync. I will demonstrate hoe to get rid of these additional steps by creating a Exchange email profile in my iOS device.




Usually once you enter your Email Address and Password it will bring you to another page to enter the Server Address, Domain Name and ect details to complete the process. 




What if you could complete the profile creation without this hustle and if you could create the profile by only entering your email address and password. You may say “Oh Yeah” Smile


Ok lets me guide you, which changes need to be done in Microsoft Active Directory side to get rid of this hustle,

1. Login to Active Directory Domain Controller

2. Go to Active Directory Domain and Trust

3. Add your public domain name as an Alternative UPN Suffix




4. Go to Active Directory Users and Computers

5. Go to properties of a single user and change the User Logon Domain to Public Domain instead of your local Domain.



Note: You can use ADModify tool to facilitate bulk user attribute modifications 


Now let’s try to configure the Exchange Profile (ActiveSync) again,




Once you enter “Next” you will be redirected to below page without asking any Server name or Domain Name,




I hope this article would helpful for you guys, Happy learning.
