WP7 Sync to Exchange 2003

Has anyone been able to sync a windows 7 phone to Exchange 2003 SP2.  When setting up the sync on the phone I get an error that the phone does not support sync to this version of Exchange.  This surprises me a lot as the install base of Exchange 2003 is quite high still.  Perhaps there is a patch for Exchange 2003 that I'm not aware of?

Exchange 2003 SP2 is the minimum version for syncing with windows mobile 7 so that shouldn't be a problem. If however your exchange server uses a self signed certificate you will have to transfer it to the phone first. (Email the certificate to yourself under a previously configured email account)

This is a current known issue where phone 7 cannot search the Global Address List under exchange 2003 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2463128

Hope that helps

I am having the same issue.  Tried installing the certificate and recieve and invalid certificate error.  When the SSL is turned off, I get the same error as the original comment "this version of server is not supported" message.

The solution was to look at our router config.  We had port 80 pointing to a web server and 443 pointing to the SBS 2k3 box.  (oops).  Once I properly installed the certificate on my wp7 device everything was happy.  thank you all for being there :-)

I found the router was redirecting the port 80 request to a web server, not the exchange server.  I installed the certificate on the wp7 device and configured it to use ssl and all was happy after that.
