Hi,
  I have a user with a Windows Mobile 6 phone, and i am trying to have him access our OWA site.  WHen i attempt to add a server source, it cuts off the ending for our OWA address, and it fails when i active sync.
It gives the following error:
Support code: 80072ee7

Our OWA address is https://mail.adam...... ...es.com/exchange
it cuts everything after the /
can i get around this?  thanks

Are you sure it is OWA you are accessing?  It sounds more like you are configuring ActiveSync, which only requires the server name 'mail.adam.........es.com' , i.e. no https:// or /exchange parts.

There's actually no connection between A/S and OWA.  A/S only needs the server name 'mail.adam...... ...es.com' .  What happens when you try to sync with this server name?

OK Sync your Phone to your desktop and open activesync


GOto tools "Add server source"

And check "this server requires SS" and then enter your domain info anf press ok

Windows Mobile 6 and Exchange 2007 Do not play well together without a valid SSL Certificate... Something you where able to get away with using Exchange 2003 and Windows Mobile 5...  Look up your error codes you'll find that they are related.

Short Answers
   -- Get a Valid Certificate from a Trusted Certificate Authority.
   -- You need not force ActiveSync to use "www.domain.com/owa" all you need is "www.domain.com" and in will resolve to OWA on its own.

Oh and make sure the 'Outlook Anywhere' is "enabled" under your 'Client Access Role' in the 'Exchange Management Console'
