Apply the following update on your exchange Exchange2003-KB926666-v2-x86-ENU.exe as it will install the right CDo.dll, then register your CDO.dll
(regsrv32.exe full path and file name of CDO.DLL)

My post above assumes that you have exchange and BES on the same server.

on windows server 2003 enterprise (exchange server) and windows 2003 std (BES Server)  does it matter where the cdo.dll and mapi.dll files are at?  reason i'm asking is because mail is working fine, the problem is syncing the calendar bi-directional.  i assume the cdo.dll file handles that.  i've checked permissions and everything.  kind of in a bind becasue a) i didn't install this (client of mine moved to china.  b) the tech over there seems to have a eval for BES 4.1

appreciate the help...

Yes you should if it's not already. Now stop your BES then cut and rename the CDO.dll file to somewhere safe, then copy and paste the CDO.dll from you exchnage server to your BES server, now run the command (regsrv32.exe full path and file name of CDO) then start BES and test the synchrinization.

The biggest issue with BES and cdo.dll is when people get told to manually register files.  If you run BES on a separate server you have Exchange System Manager installed and that really need to be updated correctly.  To update ESM on the BES just run the Exchange 2003 Service Pack 2 update the same way as you do on the Exchange Server, then you can just install any patches (e.g. DST updates) over that and it automatically updates the cdo.dll etc automatically.

thanks guys for your responses.  so, i've done all of the above and the sync is still not working they tell me.  i just found out that the IT team in China installed BES using the administrator account instead of the BES Admin account.  Is this something that could cause this?
