Hi

I have enabled Active Synch

Installed SSL certificate

But still cannot get email to my handset - says cannot get mail, connection to serverr has failed.

Tested 443 and that is open.

Any ideas?

Have you configured the external urls on the server and all DNS records? If you use http://www.testexchangeconnectivity.com to test the connection, what is the output of the tool?

"

The link with suggested solution points me to this page -

Which says you will get this error if you have Exchange 2010 and mailbox on a the legacy 2003 server.

We only have Exchange 2013 running.

Most likely a configuration problem then.

Check if you have the correct autodiscover and EAS VDIR settings. Basic authentication needs to be enabled (if you don't have this you messed with IIS and the virtual directories. NEVER DO THIS!). You might have to reset the VDIR as well, use the "reset virtual directory" within the GUI (forgot exactly what it is called in 2013).

If you have any policies set up, turn them off and try a vanilla configuration

Hello,

Do you happen to be a Domain Admin? If so, open ADUC and go to the Security tab of your account. If this tab is not visible, click View - Advanced Features. On the Security Tab, click Advanced and check the box "Include inheritable permissions from this object's parent". You should be able to sync after a couple of minutes.

HI

I have resolved this - all I needed to do is give the users inheritance rights under the security tab. I read this some where.
