Windows Phone 8 Not Syncing correclty with Exchange server
Posted on 2013-01-10
Having lots of trouble with a new Verizon Nokia Lumina 822 running Windows Phone 8.0
Have a hosted Exchange Server service that is currently on Exchange 2007. We have lots of iPhones (3, 4, 4s, & 5) and also a lot of varying Droids of different vintages from different carriers. All the Droids and iPhones sync flawlessly with Exchange. This is the first Windows phone in our office. The autodiscovery worked to find the Exchange mail server correctly and populated the correct mail server name. However now the syncing of the Calendar and contacts is very flaky at best. We will get most often get an error "0" or "80072EFD" along with a "not up to date" status on the phones email account (under where it has the account listed under "email + account". All the threads i've read on this don't really point to anything but its very frustrating that a Microsoft Phone doesn't work as wel as an Apple or Google OS when trying to sync to a Microsoft Exchange server. The phone says its software is up to date when i initiate a manual software update. It doesn't even let me delete the email account. I already tried unchecking and re-checking all the boxes. There doesn't seems to be much in the way of options on the phone to affect any of this either. If I connect to the office Wifi that doesn't seems to help either. Anyone have a solution out there on this?
