MS Exchange 2010 ActiveSync Errors

been trying to get our exchange server 2010 to work with activesync to outlook 2013 clients
I have searched within experts exchange and all seem to point to sbs 2003
I ran the Microsoft activesync test and all passed but the following is what I get

  The test of the FolderSync command failed.
  Additional Details

I would suggest
a.  Run the SBS 2011 Best Practice Analyzer (make sure it's updated to 1.5)
b.  Run the remote connectivity analyzer https://testconnectivity.microsoft.com/
c.  Make sure you have the latest Service Packs for Windows Server and Exchange

Hi David,

Is there any specific user complained about not receiving emails on their mobile devices.

In Exchange Server 2010, you may also experience this issue if the Exchange Servers group does not have the appropriate permission to the mailbox object in Active Directory. The most common cause for this is broken Access Control List (ACL) inheritance in Active Directory. Please find below KB

thank you srikanth chantati
do I need to restart server after the adding the setup from second link?
I still get the http 500 error after using second link suggestions
first link is windows 2003
funny thing just happened, when I select check mark on Ignore Trust for SSL; I get the http 500 error
if I remove the check mark I am getting a SSL error:
Validating certificate trust for Windows Mobile devices.
  Certificate trust validation failed.
  Test Steps
   The Microsoft Connectivity Analyzer is attempting to build certificate chains for certificate CN=server.serverdomain.com.
  A certificate chain couldn't be constructed for the certificate.
   Additional Details
  The certificate chain couldn't be built. You may be missing required intermediate certificates.

 thanks again, I think I am getting closer

Is this SBS 2011?
And I assume rather than Active Sync, you mean Outlook over HTTP?
