Blackberry calendar not syncing.

Dear  Experts,
I have a BES installation however the contacts & Calendars are not syncing.  Email sync is working fine.
On the blackberry manager the "wireless Calendar sync" is shown as disabled.
Have checked the cdo.dll & mapi32.dll files on both the exchange server and the BES server and they are the same versions.
Haave checked that the IT policy is correct as well.
I am told that the sync used to work before the BES installation was put on a new server.
Details of the server are as follows
Exchange 2003

Any help on resolving this would be great

You say the wireless calendar sync is disabled but your calendar is not syncing.  I would say based on the information provided you need to enable the wireless calendar sync on BES.


Hi Jdera,
I agree but I cannot find a way of turning it on!!

Any advice would be appreciated


I have not even got one way sync going let alone two way sync.  I have checked the .dll files and they are the latest.  Under blackberry manager every user has wireless calendar disabled.  

A clue as to exactly what the permissions should be may help me.
