Macbook native email client and GW Mobility Server?

Hi,
Am trying to get a Macbook Air (OSX Lion) connected to our GW (8.02 HP3) Mobility Server (version 1.2 730). Mobility server works absolutely fine for iPhone and iPad support - using native email clients. However, when I go to setup a Macbook Air (selecting Exchange as email server type) it cannot make a connection to the Mobility server. I am using exact same settings as on the iPhone, which works well. Is there an issue with the native email client for Macbook or am I missing something? Thanks.

That's because Apple Mail doesn't use ActiveSync.

OK, so much for that idea. I guess I will have to go with Imap since I am not crazy about the performance of Groupwise MAC client (accessing a remote post office). Perhaps GW 2012 MAC client is improved and/or fully supports OSX Lion? Thanks.

There isn't a new 2012 client for Mac, just the existing GW8 client.
However we are currently working on an updated Mac client which will be
802HP4 that will contain bug fixes. You can expect to see this updated
client by around this summer or so.
