Good article. I had one spot where I had an incorrect domain name. Changed it and did a reset. Still have the InvalidSyncKey error

I've not seen that error before - well not for a long time!

Can you please follow method 2 of kb883380 to delete and re-create the exchange virtual directories.

The following question also confirms my thoughts about the virtual directories:
