I've just uninstalled ActiveSync 4.1 and installed 4.2 Final from the Microsoft website. Whenever I try to sync my Windows Mobile 5 handset, I'm getting the error code "80072F78". This problem doesn't happen with ActiveSync 4.1 Final, however it did happen with the 4.2 Beta.

The message also states: "ActiveSync was unable to reach the server"

According to the troubleshooter, no problems were found!

Can anyone assist? Thanks in advance.

Hi DReade83,
if you check this question
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Email_Groupware/Exchange_Server/Q_21840203.html
you'll find out that so far the solution is to remove 4.2 and revert back to 4.1
the person posting this did not specified if he/she found out the root cause .

So to make my answer short I recomend that you remove 4.2 and re-install 4.1
until a service pack comes for 4.2


Cheers!

Heh, that's my post that I made back in the 4.2 Beta days. Can't believe the bug was present in the Beta and wasn't fixed! Good old Microsoft!

Thanks Topio. :)
