Iphone email issues DNS?

Hi Experts, I think I have a DNS issue but im not sure how to fix it.
We have just replaced the ISP at a clients site and have installed a new netgear dg834g router and since the change their 2 iphones that have stopped working. We have a mail. record and remote. record pointing to their server on 87.x.x.x - everything is working fine bar the iphones. Any suggestions?

Cheers Simon

Visit https://testexchangeconnectivity.com and run the Exchange Activesync Test.
Specify manual server settings and if you use a self-signed certificate, check the Ignore Trust for SSL check box.
What results do you get?
If you have changed ISP's - the iPhone artime provider has to catch up on DNS changes and this can take 24-48 hours, so not unusual.
You can change the email account to use the new IP address instead for the time being and then change it back once DNS has replicated changes properly.

Have you allowed TCP port 443 through and forwarded it to your Exchange Server?  That is all that is required for Activesync to work.

Hi, 443 is allowed through. The problem is that when the iphones connect to the 'mail.' address via the wireless connection they are unable to send/receive emails.

Weird

Cheers for that. The activesync test worked fine so it could be DNS changes. Ill try tomorrow and let you know.

You can adjust the iPhone settings and change mail.yourdomain.com to the IP address if you don't want to wait.
