Hi,

I've got windows server 2003 with an exchange server, I've successfully configured many of my employees Iphones to connect to their exchange mailbox, but I'm having difficulty with one specific employee.

No matter what a try, I always get a "The connection to the server failed" on the iphone, even though I've configured the phone just like all the other ones.

I'm not sure what I could of missed?

Make sure he has activsync enabled on his user profile in AD.

also reset his password and try with a new password that you are sure of.

What version of Exchange are you running?

If it is 2003, have you checked their inherited permissions as per my article here:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_2861-Activesync-Working-But-Only-For-Some-Users-On-Exchange-2007-2010.html

Ignore the fact is says Exchange 2007 / 2010.

The version seems to say : 6.5 (build 7638.2)

Alan, the inherited permissions are checked...

jerseysam, I believe it is enabled, but just to confirm, where is the option to enable it in the profile, can't seem to find it?

Illustration here:

http://www.msexchange.org/articles-tutorials/exchange-server-2003/mobility-client-access/OMA_Exchange_Server_2003.html

Section called "OMA user account settings"

basically open Server management, users, user properties and then exchange features.

make sure Outlook mobile access is enabled.

Its something I have forgotten to do before lol

1) Check OMA is enabled as described in the link above (basically right-clic the mailbox -> Exchange Features).

2) Check that the password is not obsolete (and the user has to change it), and that the user account is not locked. You can check both things in Active Directory Users and Computers.
You just can check to connect to the user mailbox via OWA.

3) You can use a Exchange connectivity test using the specific account. It will say if there is any error. https://testconnectivity.microsoft.com/ Try the test "exchange activesync", and lest us know the results.
