Hi Everyone,

I have a server running Windows Server 2003 x64 Standard with Exchange 2007.  The server was allowing iPhone's and iPad's to connect using the mail program until this week.   I've been working two days on this and still cannot find a solution please help.

On the iPhone or iPad it displays (Cannot Get Mail    The connection to the server failed.)

OWA and Outlook Clients work perfectly.

I've ran the exchange analyzer https://testexchangeconnectivity.com/ here are the results of the Exchange ActiveSync test.

      ExRCA is testing Exchange ActiveSync.
       The Exchange ActiveSync test failed.
      Test Steps
      Attempting to resolve the host name (my domain name) in DNS.
       Host successfully resolved
      Additional Details
       IP(s) returned: (server ip)
      Testing TCP Port 443 on host (my domain name) to ensure it is listening and open.
       The port was opened successfully.
      ExRCA is testing the SSL certificate to make sure it's valid.
       The SSL certificate failed one or more certificate validation checks.
      Test Steps
      The certificate name is being validated.
       Successfully validated the certificate name
      Additional Details
