Exchange active sync problems

I am trying to setup Exchange Activesync on our exchange server 2003 sp2.  I have OWA working on this server fine over HTTPS also have OMA which I can connect to from my mobile device over the internet.  Everytime I try to sync it fails though.

If I try to connect to FQDN\microsoft-server-activesync I get HTTP/1.1 501 Not Implemented from my orange SPV m3100 and also if I try from my pc using http:\\exchangeservername\microsoft-server-activesync 

Does anyone know where I am falling over?

Have you tried it from inside your network using the emulator? Verified that it isn't an external factor that is causing the problem?
Otherwise the most I can probably recommend is a reset of the virtual folders or a call to Microsoft.

Connect to OWA without https://. Select Use SSL in your mobile device

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

OWA and OMA work fine - it is just a problem with activesync

If OMA works then you are half way there.
Is EAS enabled on the user account and in Exchange?
Does the user have an email address in the default SMTP domain? It doesn't have to be the default domain.

Activesync requires a username and a password on it's own. Please reenter the credentials

Yeah the user has email address for all listed domains including the default.
As far as I can tell EAS is enabled on both the exchange server and the users AD Account

When I try and sync from the device it asks for username and password then says syncronising folder then just bombs out. when I check the status it says support code 0x80072f17

SembeeCommented:
0x80072f17 is an SSL certificate error.
Who issued your certificate? If you use OMA on the device, do you get an SSL prompt?

No prompt for ssl if usin OMA - The certificate we use for OWA is issued by verisign

SembeeCommented:
Is the name that you have entered in the host in ActiveSYnc on the device the same name as on the SSL certificate?

Yeah all the Exchange web apps operate off the same domain www.iimiamail.co.uk/exchange www.iimiamail.co.uk/oma www.iimiamail.co.uk e.t.c...

Sorry for my lack of experience this is the first time I have set something like this up so i may have missed something simple.  I have followed docs the best i could.  The exchange server was already setup with OWA using ssl

My job is just to get the activesync working off this server

When you are entering the host name in to the device, you should be entering www.iimiamail.co.uk - no /, no http, not extra directories. Just the host name on its own.
