i have tried all that thanks but still can not get it to sync get and error 0x85010004 not sure why at all
Are you using SSL?
Are you using forms based authentication?
Single server or frontend backend?

There is no single fix for this problem, it has many causes and resolutions.

No SSL no forms based auth just basic and single sbs 2003 server
Is integrated authentication enabled on the /exchange, /oma and /Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync virtual directory? Look in IIS Manager.
If it isn't, enable it, then run iisreset in a command prompt and try again.

I had the same problem and I worked on it for hours.  I tried everything that everyone has suggested with no luck.  I even called Microsoft but they couldn't figure it out either.  They sent me a hotfix but that didn't do it.
I ended up changing the IP address and Domain Name restrictions to - All computers will be: "Granted Access" to the Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync virtual directory in IIS.

Hope this helps

I have had this simlar error with some of my end users.  We are using Exchange 2003 SP1.  I had users using ActiveSync on the PPC 6700 and it worked fine.  Some of my end useres then upgraded to the Treo 700w and wanted to use ActiveSync as well.  What was happening is that some of my end users were trying set up their account with active sync before they were enabled to do so.  My company by default turns off this option in AD.  My end users would then talk to me and ask if they could be enabled.  I would enable them and they would still get the 0x85010004 error.  What I ended up doing after I set up some phones with active sync myself and it worked right away, I had the end users that were having this error do a hard reset on their phone, and reset up active sync, I would walk them through the set up and exchange would start sync with their phones.  This may be another suggestioin to try.
