Is activesync working for your users?  Most of these errors can be ignored.

My guess is you didn't run a wizard at some spot when you should have since SBS basically requires wizards.

Did you check out this patch: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/926144

Did you read this? http://forums.techarena.in/small-business-server/656570.htm

Is Exchange ActiveSync working i.e. are mobile devices able to sync with exchange serveR?

Which antivirus do you have on the Exchange ServeR? Can we disable it (msconfig) and restart the machine once to check if it is causing a conflict? If NO, then check for Antivirus exclusions as per Overview of Exchange Server 2003 and antivirus software

alanhardisty - Yes, most of the mobile user are receiving emails, so exchange activesync is working.
The mobile user who is not able to sync at all can access his mailbox on his phone using OWA.

BCipollone - We are performing maintenance on the server tomorrow night, so we will install the hot fix then...   And we have read through 656570.htm.

lastlostlast - Our antivirus is Symantec Corporate Edition 8.1, we will disable and restart...

Thanks again for your assistance

Have you tried setting up the problem user on a known good working mobile phone that syncs with another account happily?  if not - please can you try.

Have you seen my article about Activesync on Exchange 2003?

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_1798-Exchange-2003-Activesync-Connection-Problems-FAQ.html

Does the user have the Inherited Permissions selected as detailed in my other article which is for Exchange 2007 / 2010 but applies to 2003 also?
