iPhone 4s verifies Exchange but gets Cannot get Mail error

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
