I seem to be having difficulty getting a cell phone working on Exchange 2010.  I must be missing something in Exchange (some setup I'm overlooking).  I've checked the firewall and all the ports are open.  It says can't verify on the cell phone.

What am I missing on Exchange?  (server is 2010)
BTW, testing it using an iphone.

Great news - I am glad that I was able to help you and that my article was useful.

I faced the very same problem myself when I upgraded from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 - hence the article.

Fingers crossed that this is the only problem you face.

Best wishes and thanks for the points.
