I have a SBS2003. Exch 2003 SP2. OWA working fine. Exchange activesync working on my android phone with the program Touchdown (better exchange client than the built in one)
All the same settings fail in a new iphone. It accepts them but when trying to sync it says that it failed.
The event log on the exchange server gets this error everytime the iphone tries to sync:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: Server ActiveSync
Event Category: None
Event ID: 3005
Time: 12:51:12 PM
Unexpected Exchange mailbox Server error: Server: [OURSBS.ourdomain.local] User: [email@example.com.
au] HTTP status code: . Verify that the Exchange mailbox Server is working correctly.
There is alot of info about this error but seemingly quite a few solutions. None have worked for me, the iphone wont sync.
The test at testeschangeconnectivity.c
om fails, (and also adds an 3005 error to the event log when it fails) see below:
ExRCA is testing Exchange ActiveSync.
The Exchange ActiveSync test failed.

Tell me more about this issue and how to resolve it
Exchange ActiveSync returned an HTTP 500 response.
As I said, the android phone is syncing perfectly. But the iphone wont. OWA is OK.
I have tried these checklists
among some others as well and our config seems to check out.
I have also created a brand new mailbox for testing. Same problem, fine on android (touchdown) but not on iOS it seems.
Running out of hair, I would appreciate any help I can get.
