    I'm running an SBS 2003 server.

    I can connect my Windows Mobile phone (Samsung Blackjack I) using ActiveSync
    on the phone w/o any problems. However, when I try to sync my HTC Android or
    iPhone I get errors. For both devices, I can see they're talking with the
    server by purposely entering an incorrect password, at which point I get a
    bad credentials error. On the Android phone, once authenticated, I just get
    a blank screen w/o any folders. On the iPhone, once authenticated, it
    responds "cannot get mail; the connection to the server failed"

    Thank you!

  2. Hello Bob,

    Thanks for your post and others' input.

    Besides, make sure you have applied the latest updates for your SBS server including Exchange server 2003 SP2 before you configure iPhone to use Exchange ActiveSync.

  3. Nice link, Frank. :)

    For the Droid, the following should help, too. I emailed this link to
    a remote user in another state, and he was able to easily set it up
    following the screenshots (after providing him the servername, etc).
