I just installed a new Exchange server into our organization running 2010 and I am in the process of moving all the server roles over to this server.  (Our current server is running 2007)

So far everything is working EXCEPT for our users trying to connect to exchange via the Blackberry OWA method.  

I added an external URL for our EWS virtual directory and it is running Basic Authentication, but I vaguely remember having to do something else similar in 2007 before it would work with our Blackberry's.  

Can anyone refresh my memory?

Thanks

I appreciate you said you have basic authentication enabled, but did you do with the following:

Get-webservicesvirtualdirectory | set-webservicesvirtualdirectory –basicauthentication:$true

Yes, I added it with that command from the EPS.  Same with the outside URL for the directory.  Both added through the EPS.

I did CHECK the authentication settings in IIS, and they were successfully updated.  
I seem to remember something in Exchange 2007 where I had to manually change the authentication settings in one of the EWS sub folders to a different authentication before it would work, but that was many moons ago, and I could be "wrong"....

Thanks for the response.

After many hours of internet searches etc. I finally figured out the solution on my own.  
After eliminating all other possibilities, I just deleted and re-created the EWS virtual Directory with basic authentication enabled from the beginning.
