EAS is a feature of Outlook 2013, but it does not work with Exchange accounts - you need to use the native Exchange connectivity. This is by design; EAS connectivity is for "lite clients", not full-featured Outlook.

At this time, EAS is only for Outlook.com / Hotmail.

Hi Shaun,

This forum post does not necessarily apply to this application. Outlook 2013 can be configured with SmarterMail via Exchange ActiveSync. When setting up an account in Outlook 2013 to use with EAS, the user can select "Manual setup or additional server types" and then "Outlook.com or Exchange ActiveSync compatible service," which SM is such a service. If you're having trouble connecting, I'd recommend opening a support ticket to get this looked into.
