Need insight how to connect Pega to the Microsoft Active Sync server over HTTP. If Pega provides any OOTB feature for Active Sync configuration?
Request information if Pega provides any OOTB feature for Active Sync configuration? Need information on how to connect Pega to the Microsoft Active Sync server over HTTP and not using usual SMTP/Port configuration using Pega Rule Email Account

The Wikipedia page for Active Sync Summarizes it as follows: (my emphasis added)
Exchange ActiveSync (commonly known as EAS) is a communications protocol designed for the synchronization of email, contacts, calendar, tasks, and notes from a messaging server to a smartphone or other mobile devices.
The protocol also provides mobile device management and policy controls.
The protocol is based on XML.
The mobile device communicates over HTTP or HTTPS.
Originally branded as AirSync and only supporting Microsoft Exchange Servers and Pocket PC devices, the protocol has since become a de facto standard for synchronization between groupware and mobile devices.
So the protocol's purpose seems to be to provide synchronization (that is: two-way updates) between a Mobile Device and a Centralized Service: I'm not sure therefore why you are considering using this Protocol to send Email (a one-way,'fire-and-forget' mechanism ) from an Outlook Exchange Server from PRPC (which is not a mobile device of course) ?
If you need to send email from a program: the standard way of doing this is via the SMTP protocol (probably the same SMTP server that the Active Sync Service is accessing): and this is exactly what PRPC offers.
