I have just completed migrating to exchange 2016. Email is flowing in and out properly and all users have access to email via Outlook web access. However, no one with a mobile device is able to connect to The Exchange Server. Everyone receives the error message authentication failed.

any thoughts on what is happening here?

When you say "all" users do you mean "all" users or just those users you are testing?

Assuming the latter, are those users a member of any privileged groups (i.e. Domain Admins, Enterprise Admins, Schema Admins)?

If so, within the advanced security settings of the users, enable "Allow inheritable permissions..."

After enabling, the mobile users should have access to their mailboxes.

By "all", I mean all users who have mobile devices.  None of them are administrative users.  I am receiving the same message when attempting to set up the Domain Admin account on my phone.  for this account too I receive "authentication failed" , even after the advanced settings inheritable permissions check box is set

Run the ActiveSync tests from the remote connectivity analyzer ... https://testconnectivity.microsoft.com

Hopefully, it provides you insight to what might be happening.

Try to use exchange connectivity (acivesync) test at https://testconnectivity.microsoft.com
Please use a test or normal user account and change the password afterwards.
It can give you additional information about where the problem is.
