I'm having trouble getting an iPhone to sync up with Exchange 2003 SP2.
returns the following error:
Testing Exchange ActiveSync
Exchange ActiveSync test Failed

Tell me more about this issue and how to resolve it
Exchange ActiveSync returned an HTTP 500 response.
I have gone through alanhardistys excellent article https://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_1798-Exchange-2003-Activesync-Connection-Problems-FAQ.html
This part in particular has me wondering...
" Remove SSL settings from the Exchange IIS virtual directory
" Run iisreset
" Test activesync without SSL selected - hopefully this should work or give the OK result
Even without SSL selected on the Exchange Virtual Directory - the connectivity test fails
" If okay - right-click on the Exchange Virtual Directory and select all Tasks> Save Configuration to a file. Name the file Exchange and save to the desktop
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
