Okay - worth a shot.

Please visit https://testexchangeconnectivity.com and run the Exchange Activesync test and specify manual server settings, then complete the test and post the results.

Thanks

You appear to be using a Self-Signed Certificate with only one name in the certificate.

You will need the following names in a Certificate for Exchange 2007 / 2010 to work happily:

mail.domain.com.au
autodiscover.domain.com.au
internalservername.internaldomain.local
internalservername

If you purchase a 3rd Party SSL certificate with the above names, the problems will go away very quickly.

Using a self-signed certificate is often the cause of most problems with Exchange communications and a cheap 3rd party SSL certificate, such as a GoDaddy SAN / UCC certificate is often the easiest way around the problems.

I dont believe this to be certificate related. We get a 401 response from the server.

Have you tried re-creating the activesync virtual directory?
There is a wizard for this in the EMC itself.

Also check and make sure that the external URL for activesync is correctly set.
