Migration from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2013 completed successfully.  When I removed the old Exchange 2007 machine it appears some users are having issues.  I've attempted to update the default time out for the IIS default website and confirm the same configuration for the timeout in the firewall.

Found this article but really didn't see a resolution to the problem.

Please check the inherited permissions of the problem users to make sure they didn't lose permissions in the migration:

Check the article again excaltech, JustinPickett posted some helpful information about ActiveSync and this issue. This appears to be an SP1 issue, did you install Exchange 2013 SP1?

I actually fixed this issue by removing Unknown SID's from the Security > Advanced tab of the parent OU for the users, please read what JustinPickett has posted.

This is what Justin Pickett describes as the fix and it worked for me for ActiveSync users.

It looks like it's a known issue.  What I got from an Exchange support rep is that he has seven other cases open for the same issue. Only happens when moving from Exchange 2007 --> Exchange 2013 SP1 is appears
