    Sorry fella, I think you may have bought the wrong product. The RT isn't really meant for the business community. You probably should have held out for the pro which should be out later this month. I saw your other post regarding Exchange and you're referring to Enterprise there. I suspect that some of the issues you are encountering may be down to group policy at your company or the lack of enterprise support that the RT has/never meant to have

    So you learned. Make a small change and you get the warning. What's the big deal?

    Um, you and Microsoft aren't on the same page.

    From Microsoft's own site:

    Surface for Business

    Windows RT
    Designed for the mobile office. Light, loaded, and ready to work when you are. Connected standby offers a seamless start up experience, so you can create, collaborate, and share – anywhere.

    Did you also read the footnote?

    Yep. The footnote is for OfficeRT. It says nothing about the Mail App. 2 different things.

    That tells me nothing. RT and Pro both have Mail and Messaging. Nothing in that list steers me to Pro for sync with Exchange. In fact, I'm guessing the Pro will be released with the very same Mail and Messaging App...the list would indicate this.

    Windows mail isn't Outlook which is what you will probably need for your Enterprise. You really should read up more.

    I'm familiar with Outlook. We run it on thousands of PCs. I also read a lot. You keep deflecting the point, which is...even the cheapest Smartphone successfully and reliably syncs mail, contacts, and calendars with Exchange. This is a fail on Microsofts part. My guess is it will get fixed. After all, this is version 1.0

    Thank you, you are indeed correct. The Surface is a fail as a business device, even as a BYOD auxiliary device for travel.

    I'm done.

    The RT meets my business needs, which aren't much. However, I did work for U.S. Treasury for four years and for that environment the Pro is the perfect fit. Maybe Microsoft will create an Office365 app that will fix those problems.

    You sound like a snotty 12 year old. Surface has a default setting I don't like, so it sucks. If you actually are an adult, there is no way you work with computers.
