    Well, after sitting on the fence for almost 8 months, I made the jump today.

    You may have seen this pic posted up in a few threads here and elsewhere

    I bought my first WP! I decided with WP8 coming down the pike so soon that I'd just get a nice 710 in white (maybe first one sold in Canada ?). It'll become the wife's phone when WP8 finally hits.

    So I want to get it set up right, right from the get go.

    I'm so used to Active Sync in WM, I know I'm going to have a bit of a learning curve setting up the 710.

    I already set up my co-worker's 710, but with his everything get's synced through his Windows Live account.

    I use Outlook, and see a few comments here and there about using Exchange Server. I've never explored that before. Would setting up Outlook as an "Exchange Server" give me back some of the syncing functionality I had with Active Sync?

    If "yes", how do I go about doing that? Online tutorials you might suggest?

    BTW - I'm still using Outlook '07, I'm trying to hold out until Win8 and the new Office come up.

    Thanks folks! I can't tell you how excited I am after being a mostly lurker in this community for so long now, to finally be able to become a full fledged member!

    Setting up outlook on windows phone is easy, just add an outlook account there and the rest is automatic. If you need more info here's a guide on adding multiple accounts on windows phone.

    Thanks Travis! I'll check that out.

    BTW - My White Lumia 710 came out of the box with 8773.12120 so internet sharing is already on board!
