  • ActiveSynch 2003 Issue SOLVED!

    We had a terrible issue getting ActiveSync working on Exchange 2003 with a Front End/back End Server and after two 4 hour calls to MS and reading a thousand postings on the net I found our issue quite by accident.

    If you have tried everything else, and you migrated from 5.5 to exchange 2003 originally, we could not make this work on a mailbox in SG!, the original Storage Group. If we moved the mailbox to another SG, or created it fresh and then moved it, then it works fine. Don't ask its Microsoft. So after you try all the cookbook setups, check what SG your target mailbox is in... Apparently there are attributes from 5.5 that bother Activesync under 2003, obviously this is not an issue in Exchange 2007 as it does its own 64 bit AD thing and the 5.5 stuff is long gone...
