    what helped me was going into outlook's other settings tab, going to
    advanced, getting into the add-in options and installing pmailext.ecf... from
    the \program files\microsoft office\office11\addins folder,

    i have 2 pocket pc's- one i sync on a regular basis, the other i sync
    occasionally- every once in a while i will get this error. all i did to
    resolve it was unplug the one i dont usually use, switch USB ports where i
    plug them into and run the sync again. probably not the healthiest thing in
    the world for my activesync, but it seems to be working out just fine.

    I am facing the same issue but only when I sync contacts. My calender entries
    and tasks are synched smoothly but when I try to sync contacts I get support
    error code: 86000108.

    I have tried installing certificate, do it one by one but nothing seems to
    be working fine for me.

    I came across this thread trying to solve a similar problem on an HP IPAQ.
    None of these solutions helped me but what did was switching off the WIFI
    connection on the IPAQ and just connecting over the USB connection.

    This also worked for me by unchecking the "Favorites" folder under "Windows
    PC". Also ran Outlook diags which fixed a problem with the application data
    which may have been the root issue.

    Thanks everyone for your contribution on this thread.

    If "about three or four syncs after I got everything working, it happened
    again", then this is not a solution.

    Try simply unplugging your device, waiting 10 seconds, then plug it back in.
    Worked for me and has never happened again.

  7. bsrbennett you are a legend! The second thing you mention below worked for
    me, when my HTC TyTnII just decided to stop synching after 18 months of
    working perfectly. My email and tasks wouldn't synch. After doing as you
    suggested they now synch again.

    I tried deleting the partnerships on both my phone (MDA Vario III) and
    computer (XP) but I don't think that helped.

    I started off by only synching files, which works fine. I then added
    calendar - also fine. I got the error when trying to sync contacts (I don't
    do files & emails).

    However, I managed to fix it by running Scanpst to fix my pst file. Someone
    helpful from here had some advice:

    "The Microsoft Inbox Repair Tool is a single-file executable program, file
    named Scanpst.exe. By default, Microsoft Outlook will install the Scanpst.exe
    file within your Program Files folder, in
    'C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\MSMAPI\1033'.

    I then went to this website to find out where my pst file was actually stored.

    Everything seems to be working fine now.

    Hm... this seems to fix many USB issues... why did the USB norming group
    come out with such a crappy interface spec? Going through a hub should make
    NO difference, but as we know it does. You should be able to daisychain your
    USB devices.. but as we know, you seldom can.

    The problem is for anyone who uses a dock for a laptop and has their PDA
    dock plugged in , its going to be plugged into the USB port on the DOCK, and
    thus probably through the HUB that is built into the dock.

    Plugging my pda dock directly into the latop by USB and not into the USB
    port on the laptop dock just is not an option.

    For the most part activesync seems to work, but just now it went wonky
    spitting out this 86000108 error code. (When will microsoft developers be
    required to ALSO include a line of text explaining the code in english as
    well? That number means something to the person who generated that code #
    reporting, so include a short line form him on what it means for christ sake)

    Well I unchecked all of the 'items' to sync. Synced.. ok, no problems
    there. Then went back and turned on the items I needed syncing (Contacts,
    Calendar, Tasks, Notes, Files) and did another sync. That sync wen tclean
    without the error... but now my laptop's outlook calendar is polluted with
    double appointments... so something is still wonky behind the scenes.

    But it got it 'unstuck' from that error.

  11. Just to add to the collection of solutions, I did a soft reset on my handheld
    which fixed it. (iPaq 114 Classic)
