Exchange connection on Window 6.5 Mobile (HTC HD2 phone)

I have an Exchange 2003 server that I am trying to connect to using my new HD2 phone, I testing the connectivity using and  below is where it is failing.
- OWA works from the browser
- OMA works from thr browser
- Ports 80 and 443 are open
- No SSL installed

Test results:
Testing SSL Certificate for validity.
  The SSL Certificate failed one or more certificate validation checks.
   Tell me more about this issue and how to resolve it
   Additional Details
  A network error occurred while communicating with remote host
Exception Details:
Message: Authentication failed because the remote party has closed the transport stream.
Type: System.IO.IOException
Stack Trace:

How do I fix this? I have port 80 and 443 open on the router. I have gone through a few other discussion on this topic but haven't had any luck in resolving it though.

From the results you posted, it looks like you may not have a security certificate set up on your Exchange server.  If you do have a certificate, make sure it was generated for the external name of the server (e.g. the name you enter as server name when setting up the phone).

You could also try clearing the "SSL" check-box on the phone when you set up the server.  I have never tried this myself, because I always run with a ceritificate.

You are correct that I don't have security certificate on Exchange and I have been attempting with SSL box unchecked but no luck so far.
Have you tried SSL Unchecked on Exchange Server as well as on Mobile Device. If you are not using SSL then don't trust on What is the error message on Mobile Device and Any event ID for 3005 on Exchange Server

This is the error code I get on from the Active Sync on my phone 0x85010001. SSL is unchecked on the server and so is on the phone settings when I add the exchange account.
I'm sure you've covered this, but when testing OMA from a web browser are you doing so outside your network (e.g. from your home or a library or something like that)?

The error code you gave can indicate permissions problems.  When setting up the exchange account, have you verified username / password and domain are correct?
teamsportsAuthor Commented:
Yes I have checked the OMA from home it works great on my PC. And I have attempted to set this up on my phone a number of times - spell checked, link checked, password checked, username checked...
Can u provide the test account credentials for testing....
teamsportsAuthor Commented:
domain: (name of the domain controller server)
Note: Our website is hosted somewhere else, not on this exchange server...

I just checked and found that you have SSL selected on /Microsoft-Server-Activesync, we need to remove it.
teamsportsAuthor Commented:
Removed, I was trying different things and activated the a minute ago. It didnt work, i removed it now. Now the error i get is 0x80072F7D...
Go to IIS Manager - Expand Default Web Site - Right Click on Microsoft-Server-Activesync - Properties - Click on "Directory Security" and then click on "Edit" of Secure Communication - Uncheck "Require SSL"

This Error is indicating issue with SSL, Make sure that you do not have SSL enabled on /Exchange, /Exchweb, /Exadmin & /Microsoft-Server-Activesync and Default Web Site
teamsportsAuthor Commented:
checked them all, SSL not checked anywhere, still the same error message. Restarted the IIS default website after making changes...

mohammedkasim21: do you want me to leave the test account active for a little while longer?
Any other places I can look to resolve this issue?
Have you considered adding a certificate and running secure instead of unsecure?  This is a better way to run your e-mail, and may be a simple resolution the problem you are having as well.
teamsportsAuthor Commented:
Are there steps you can share with me to install a certificate and run secure email?
This link should cover it:

You can generate your own certificate (self signed) or buy one.  I've see an lot of questions from people trying to go the self-signed route, so now recommend purchasing a certificate to anybody who is not already familiar with creating and managing certificates.
