You may also need to configure your activesync url's. This article describes the setup for the client access side of Exchange (which includes the activesync). https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh529912%28v=exchg.150%29.aspx

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

You shouldn't need either ActiveSync URLs or an Autodiscover address - although neither will do any harm. That is because most devices do not use Autodiscover correctly and the ActiveSync URL is only used by Autodiscover.

The first thing I would do is create a test account then use the Microsoft test site at https://testconnectivity.microsoft.com/ to test the connection.

Lack of a trusted SSL certificate can cause a lot of problems with ActiveSync.

Hi Simon
The connection analyzer resolves the domain name and port 443 ok, but cannot validate the cert name
It gives loads of errors on active sync and autodiscover

It is a new office and is the first time we have used exchange, so i have all mail forwared to our static IP which is attached to the mail domain MX record, is the reason that the cert cannot be validated is because the mail domain cannot resolve the IP address?, sorry not that famillar with exchange

Not sure how to fix this problem!

Is the domain name that you are trying to connect to (i.e. - mail.contoso.com) in the Subject Alternative Name of the security certificate?

Do you have a trusted SSL certificate on the server?
Exchange will install an SSL certificate during setup, but that is a placeholder for a real trusted certificate and is not supported for ActiveSync or Outlook Anywhere.
If you haven't got an SSL certificate, then you need to.
