I recently installed Exchange 2003 SP2 for enterprise edition.  I've been trying to configure a windows mobile 5.0 hand held device to connect to the exchange server and take advantage of direct push email.  When I enter the appropriate settings into the hand held device is says authentication fails - bad username or password.  When I check the event viewer on the exchange server I can see where the logon failed.  I'm not sure what's going on, I've tried every combination of settings for the device, but nothing seems to work -- please help.

Have you already setup OWA?
Do you have a SSL cert from a public CA configured on your OWA website?
Do you have Service Pack 2 for Exchange 2003?
 
Here are articles from Daniel Petri's website and Msexchange.org, which tell you how to do this.
All you have to do is install Service pack 2. Install SSL cert. Enable Direct Push from ESM.
You probably already have service pack 2 and the SSL cert.
 
From the Windows Mobile 5.0 device you configure Microsoft Active Sync. You need to use the server FQDN,
example, https://mail.domain-name.com, and the users active directory username and password.
