Activesync issue on Exchange 2013

We are migrating from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2013 and are having a problem with the smartphones and tablets syncing e-mail.  We have moved the users' mailboxes over to the E2013 server.  We have moved the pointers in the firewall to point to the new server.  OWA is working fine over port 443.  There are now certificate errors.  The activesyncvirtualdirectory is pointing to mail.contoso.local and the DNS entry for mail.contoso.local is pointed to the E2013 server.

Smartphones with existing accounts are not able to send or receive mail.

When we try to setup a new account on a smartphone the account sets up fine but then there is an error when it tries to sync messages.

Thanks for any ideas.

Hello,

Have you installed proper certificate on Exchange 2013?

The Public url should be mail.contoso.com not mail.contoso.local.

Yes.  We've installed a SAN certificate with both mail.contoso.com and mail.contoso.local.

That might have been the enabler to fix the issue.  The results of that scan gave me some steps to take and that seems to have fixed the problem.  Its early here so it may be a few more hours before I get feedback from the effected users. I post an update when I hear.

Thanks

The remote connectivity analyzer identified the problem and gave me the steps to fix the obscure little SOB.

Thanks
