I've setup many SBS2003 R2 premium boxes with ISA2004 installed and run Blackberry devices associated through BIS using the network providers web site (in this case mobileemail.vodafone.net)
However I have another site now that is running SBS2003 standard (no ISA2004) and I can't get the Blackberry devices to connect over BIS.
The OWA service runs fine and the test account I'm using logs in and the email can be browsed. If I attempt to associate the blackberry account with the Exchange account I get the error message 'An error occured during email account validation . . .' (see attachment)
I've tried all sorts of variations in the Vodafone wizard but this message keeps comming up.
Is there something I don't know about SBS2003 standard like authentication methods.
Do I need any other ports open other trhan those to allow OWA to work ?? for instance.
Not sure where or how to start my debug - this has all worked out of the box before.
I have spoken to Vodafone who assure me the accounts have been reset correctly (they were connected to third party POP accounts before)
So IN summary:
SBS 2003 with Exchange 2003 is functioning (even has iphones connected to it OK)
Vodafone accounts have been reset and I have a user account
SBS2003 OWA works fine
Vodafone account wont associate with Exchange.
Any thoughts - its quite urgent from the customer point of view as we went live a few days ago and noone has mobile mail anymore :-((
I have remote acces to the server this evening.
