Do you have Exchange behind a firewall?  Have you verified the host name you're entering for the Exchange server?  Download a ping/traceroute app, like ServerUp, and point it towards the Exchange server.  See if you get any response.  If not, run a traceroute and see what's holding up your packets.

The weird thing is I had it working for a few minutes this morning, then it gave me an account error. I then deleted the corporate sync account and have been unable to set it back up.

Generally, it should just work, provided that ActiveSync is running on your Exchange server.

I've understood that there may be issues connecting 2.2 with Exchange 2003, but that's the risk you run not having upgraded to 2007 yet. Some of the connectors aren't implemented in 2003.

For our Exchange 2007 server, I have to check Use Secure Connection and Accept All SSL Certs.
