Couldnot open connection to server on Nexus 7
When I try to configure Exchange ActiveSync on Nexus 7, it doesn't connect to my work's Exchange 2003 server. I type the domain/user and password correctly and tap on "Next" button. The setup displays "Checking incoming server settings..." and then shows up error message "Setup could not finish - Couldn't open connection to server". Doing a complete factory reset is still not working. I note that the hotmail also has the same problem.
When you set up exchange server with the stock email app and server is not use the standard SSL port (443), you will get this problems.
* If the server is set up with other methods, you need to ask administrator for the security ports and set it up properly under the setting.
* If you still couldn't fix the issues, use K9-Mail Android App from Google Play. The email client supports search, multi-folder sync, IMAP push email, flagging, filing and signatures. But it is not great for tablets.
