We have an SBS2008 server and were used to getting our email on iphones.  We dont seem to be getting email on them right now.  It just tries to get email but we dont get an error on the phone.  What can be checked in order to fix why this is happening?  
Our Remote Web Workplace is working and Outlook Web Access is working properly.  You can log into OWA and have the abilty to send and recieve.  Users with phones and also get email on their desktops.

What can we check to resolve this issue?

Is activesync enabled on the exchange/sbs?
does the phone give you the option what you want to sync when configuring it?

I setup an account on a new iphone and it goes through the whole setup and does not give you an error. I was able to send, just cant recieve email.

How would I check for that, just so I make sure it is?  It was working for a while and then it quit.

how do you configure it, is it exchange/or pop/imap?
also, did you check if you have exchange 2003 sp2?
because otherwise it will be no go...

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Please check your inherited permissions as per my article:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_2861-Activesync-Working-But-Only-For-Some-Users-On-Exchange-2007-2010.html

Anti-virus software can interfere with Activesync and cause the problems you are experiencing so please check the registry setting from my Exchange 2003 article (inconsistent sync section) and add it if necessary:

Arbitrary closure - objection on these grounds.

Yes,  the phone was wiped and after phone was wiped it would now recieve email. Nothing was ever down on server side.  I didnt know how to respond to closing out this question.  If I need to do something please let me know.  I am unsure of what alanhardisty is stating in his reply.

All,
 
Following an 'Objection' by alanhardisty (at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Q_27376268.html) to the intended closure of this question, it has been reviewed by at least one Moderator and is being closed as recommended by the Expert.
 
At this point I am going to re-start the auto-close procedure.
 
Thank you,
