Not quite sure if this is a duplicate, but couldn't find anything on search.

So, to the point, is there any ETA on adding support for this?

The lack of calendar and contact sync at work is slowly but surely starting to get on my nerves. I figured I'd live without it, but as days go by it's starting to look less and less likely. While I prefer my Jolla, I might have to go back to Android just because of this.

See the beginning of http://www.msexchange.org/articles-tutorials/exchange-server-2010/mobility-client-access/configuring-certificate-based-authentication-exchange-2010-activesync-part1.html for details and a description what CBA is. Part 2 of that series shows you examples how this works on iOS and Android.

Welcome along :) What word did you use in search? (for duplicates)

Thanks! And I checked for posts containing "certificate", "CBA" or "activesync" with the tag feature-request, and didn't find a request for this. Feel free to have a look if you can find one, or if you have tips what else I should check.

Those searh words should do to job, so if you didn't find one this is probably not a duplicate :) +1

What is blocking you from using the account ? A way to import non-trusted certificates ? if you trust your server you can add the account manually and select the option "Accept all SSL certificates".

I added a link to the question which describes CBA in more detail. Shortly, it's a way of using personal certificates for authentication instead of (or in addition to) your normal domain username and password. We use it as a form of 2-factor authentication.
