Issues connecting iPad2 to Exchange 2007 on SBS2008


We are trying to connect an iPad2 to the company Exchange 2007 on SBS2008, but it does not want to connect. We tried two iPads and both of them failed. We successfully connected on iPhone on the OWA, but the iPad is not working.

Can you please advise ?

Are you attempting to connect the iPad through the mail client on the iPad? Two things do you have auto discover configured and do you have a 3rd party cert installed or a self-signed?

Are the iPads connected to a wireless network at the office by chance?  If so - try turning off wifi and connecting cellular for kicks.

Thank you for the responses,

I tried connecting the iPad following this tutorial:

And yes, the iPad is connected to WiFi in the office.
The steps Verizon has is correct.  Is it a wifi only unit?  I'd like to see you try it via cellular or on a wifi network outside the office if possible.

I've occasionally seen internal DNS issues that have caused problems getting them to hook-up and sync.  Wondering if the iPhones were on cell that's how they worked.
