Problem with connecting Blackberry to Exchange 2003 server

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
Hi All,

I have an issue driving me crazy.

I have setup OWA on an SBS 2003 server and all is fine.  I can logon to any account anywhere, which is great.

But when I go to set up the blackberry it says:

"Cannot connect to email server or invalid server name"
"Please verify the Outlook Web Access URL.  If the error persists contact xxx.xxxx.com.au"

The strange thing is I have it working at my office.  I can put the details of my OWA on the blackbery and it connects straight away.

The only difference I can see when I log on to the OWA that works I just the basic username and password box like when you logon to a server, but on the server that doesnt work I get the whole Outlook Web Access logon screen the more option.  (that maybe nothing)

Is there something I have setup different from one to the other

Can someone please through some suggestions at me.
