BES calendar appoints do not sync

hedgetec asked
Last Modified: 2008-04-24
We are having trouble with calendar wireless sync on the Blackberry. The calendar gets updated if the appointment is entered into outlook, but it doesn't make it into outlook if it's entered into the blackberry.

We are using BES 4.0 and Exchange 2003 sp2. This seems to be working fine on all exchange servers except a new server. I suspect that some files on exchange do not match the BES. I have already updated CDO.dll and mapi32.dll and registred them. Are there any other files i have to check to get this to work?

No this did not help. My setup is working fine for other servers. I am having problem with mailboxes on just one exchange server.

Its either permissions or files.
There was a change to the behaviour of the permissions last year. If the new server has been fully patched and the others have not, or the work arounds put in place on the older server and not the new one, then that can cause these issues.

Have you checked the version numbers of the files to ensure that they are the same or higher as the problem server?



I have only checked cdo.dll and mapi32.dll. What other files should i check?
