IMAP not working for 1 user after the password changed, fine for everyone else

Hi,
I have no idea why this is happening.

We have 3 users on a small network running SBS2008. All users have an iPhone and they are accessing their mail  through IMAP.
I reset the password for 1 of the users and now i get an error that says
The mail server "remote.mydomain,com" is not responding. Verify that you have entered the correct account info in Mail Settings.

The users network login works fine and they don't have any other users apart from on their iphone. We have tried it from other iphones and we get the same issue. We have tried other users IMAP account settings on his iphone and they work fine.

I think it is directly an issue ith this users account but can't figure it out

Can someone help please.

Why in the world are you using IMAP and not Exchange Active Sync?

I  nit sure why it was setup like that, the owner of the company wants it left like that so we are stuck trying to fix it.

I have suggested to the user that we use activesync as a "work around" until IMAP is fixed

The easiest solution maybe delete the account from from phone then recreate it

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

CrisHanna MVP,
Thanks for the help. I tried this and no good but i deleted the account on the server :( and recreated it and we are now up and running.

I have to get them to activesync as that is working fine.

Thanks for the help
