Samsung Galaxy S4 Exchange issue

hi guys

our company has just moved from BB to samsung  smart phones.
when it comes to setting up users using activesync the setup completes without errors and the account is created. but when you open mail it is continuously loading.

this is only happening with random users. maybe 30% of users are affected.

so my assumptions are that it cant be a firewall or NAT issue. it cant be exchange because most users are working. so only thing is individual user accounts.

i have tried comparing Active Directory user accounts.
but is there an users setting that would stop users from getting emails??

cheers

Ah....
•Open the Active Directory Users and Computers and go to “View” and select “Advanced Features”
•After that, find the user who is not able to use the ActiveSync, and double-click him, and go to “Security” tab then click “Advanced”…
•Then just check the check-box “Include inheritable permissions from this object’s parent” and click OK to close all the other windows…
•After this, the user should be able to connect to the server using ActiveSync with no problems…

Meaning the phones havent connected yet, maybe the problem lays there?

What if, on troubled phones, you delete the exchange account and readd the exchange account, what happens?

Exchange ActiveSync doesn't have sufficient permissions to create (user account)
