Hi all,

I have a client with SBS2003 fully patched with Exchange SP3, we have a mixture of iPhone 3s and 4s, when setting up for Exchange all verify the account but get error Cannot Get Mail, The connection to the server failed.

I have looked all over the net but nothing has worked, Active Sync is enabled.

Hope you can help.

Regards

Jemal

      Attempting to resolve the host name mail.******.com in DNS.
       The host name resolved successfully.
       
      Additional Details
      Testing TCP port 443 on host mail.amigo.uk.com to ensure it's listening and open.
       The port was opened successfully.
      Testing the SSL certificate to make sure it's valid.
       The certificate passed all validation requirements.
       
      Test Steps
      Checking the IIS configuration for client certificate authentication.
       Client certificate authentication wasn't detected.
       
      Additional Details

       The HTTP authentication methods are correct.
       
      Additional Details

       Errors were encountered while testing the Exchange ActiveSync session.
       
      Test Steps
       
      Attempting to send the OPTIONS command to the server.
       The OPTIONS response was successfully received and is valid.
       
      Additional Details
      Attempting the FolderSync command on the Exchange ActiveSync session.

Okay - that suggests you need to follow KB817379 to create the Exchange-OMA virtual directory.
