Trying to connect an iPhone to an exchange email account and I receive a cannot get mail message.

Another user of the same mail server with the same settings can access the emails fine from an iPhone & iPad, and I cannot find any difference between the two accounts that would prevent the second from working.

Normal access to this mailbox is working correctly via outlook and web mail.

Server is running exchange 2010

Hello,

Go into your Exchange Control Panel and open the Properties of the mailbox in question. Expand Phone & Voice Features. Make Sure ActiveSync is enabled. If it is double-click it. Make sure the user's phone isn't list as Blocked or Quarantined.

Another thing to check is have the user enter their password again on the phone. A mistyped password is a common source for this problem.
