Hi Asterisque

I have tried all those combinations, user is the only user who is unable to connect via active sync.

If I try to configure my info on the user mobile it fails. If I try to configure my info on my phone it works. If I try to configure the users info on my phone it fails.

All other users do not have a problem using active sync.

CAS logs had stale active-sync records, removed them and outlook performance improved.
