Nokia MFE: HTTP error code=500 - possible Kerberos issue?

We use MFE on the nokia mobiles to sync our emails on the moves. Recently for reasons unknown they all stopped working.  We can get onto webmail but our mobiles we receive the following error according to the admin_log1.txt

HTTP error code=500
HTTP Server Error 500: Internal Server Error

I confirmed this by running the Exchange Remote Connectivity Analyzer:

I cant see any problems on the server APART from the following error Event ID: 4

The kerberos client received a KRB_AP_ERR_MODIFIED error from the server host/sgbcoloisa2.christiegroup.com.  The target name used was ldap/sgbcoloisa1.christiegroup.com. This indicates that the password used to encrypt the kerberos service ticket is different than that on the target server. Commonly, this is due to identically named  machine accounts in the target realm (CHRISTIEGROUP.COM), and the client realm.   Please contact your system administrator.

Im not sure if this is causeing the problem, if so how can I resolve it?

Thanks for any help given.

Try to set authentication to integrated.
Use the Exchange System Manager to change it.
Via Servers , Protocols, http
