Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I installed my first Exchnage 2010 server with CAS, HT and MB role. My users are still on Exchnage 2007 Sp2 server. OWA is working perfectly fine for legacy as well as Exchnage 2010 test user. But ActiveSync is not working for Exchnage 2007 users. It is working fine for Exchnage 2010 test user though. Also I noticed that ActiveSync works fine with url inplace of main url ( I have entered in extrenal url for activesync. Any ideas for this behaviour.?

It was a conflict permission issue where Exchnage server was made  member of Exchnage Org group which had denied permission on mailboxes. Once that was addressed and server rebooted, everything started working like a charm.
