It will then ask if you want to sync mail, contacts and calendars. Select the items you want to sync using the on/off buttons and click Save.  The phone will now pull all your data from the server and will wirelessly sync data from this point.

 

Multiple Calendar Sync

To view multiple calendars on your iPhone, navigate to the Calendar application. In the top left corner, there is a back arrow marked Calendars. Click on Calendars to view your calendars. You can view calendars one at a time by clicking on each individually or select ‘All’ to view all calendar data.

To view multiple address books ( Groups ) on your iPhone, navigate to your contacts. In the top left corner, click Groups. Under Groups you can choose to view a specific address book of your choice.

A note about your inbox and filtering messages on your iPhone

Many people use Microsoft Outlook/Exchange at work, or some other mail client such as Mail.app, and use its rules system to automatically separate incoming emails into different organizational folders. While the iPhone can see all of these folders, only messages in the INBOX will trigger the iPhone to alert you of a new message.  You can configure subfolders to alert when a new message is received by enabling push on the subfolder.
