Cannot see new e-mails on iphone 4 connected to exchange 2003.

The setup:
Windows 2003 SBS SP2
Exchange Server 2003 SP2
--Function level is at Native Mode
--Exchange vDir for mobile access is set to: /exchange-oma

DC - AD
--Function level is at Windows 2000 Native

Internal Outlook clients connect just fine and can send / receive through the Exchange server.

The business gateway is set to forward ports 443 and 25 to the Server IP.

The scenario:
This is the strangest thing but it is happening.

I can add a new account through the iPhone for the exchange server, accept the SSL certificate, and off it goes.

However, I can only see read e-mails on the inbox, sent items, etc.
If any items are new (New emails) they will not show up on the iPhone even if I manually force it to refresh.
Here's where the strange happens: I go to the Exchange OWA and click on the new message to read it... as soon as this happens I can refresh the iPhone and the newly read message shows up on the iphone as a read email.

Any thoughts?

Things I've tried:
Restored the iPhone 4 and updated the software to the latest iOS (4.3.5)
Checked and re-checked IIS permissions for the OMA and Default Web Site.. Ok.
Cross-referenced another server from another client with identical setup and theirs works fine, this one does not..

I'm lost and need some help.

Please add the registry key (to the server) mentioned in my article in the Inconsistent Sync section which relates to Anti-Virus Interference:

This should resolve your issue.

Inconsistent Sync:
If you are getting inconsistent Synchronisation from your device to your Exchange 2003 server, please add the following registry key to the server:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeIS\VirusScan
