USING RUMAIL WITH AN IPHONE, IPAD OR IPOD TOUCH (iOS7)

Please note that OIT only provides limited support for the iPhone and iPod touch. Also note that after configuring an Exchange ActiveSync account, all existing contact and calendar information on the iPhone or iPod touch is overwritten. Additionally, iTunes no longer syncs contacts and calendars with your desktop computer. You can still sync your IPhone or IPod touch wirelessly with MobileMe services.
