Are you able to access the Exchange through the web interface (OWA)? If yes, try creating a new appointment from there. If you receive an error message then your mailbox is corrupted on the server.

I had a similar problem with my Windows Mobile device a few months ago. Moving the mailbox from one message store to a new one fixed the problem.

There is also the possibility that an anti-virus on the server is causing timeouts, which cause the calendar to not synchronise correctly.

In any event you will need help from your IT administrator.

OWA posting works fine, also posting on the iphone also works fine and shows up in exchange but nothing posted through OWA or Outlook shows on the phone. With the firewall disabled this also makes no difference, but I would have thought that if the firewall was blocking something that posting on the phone would also not work.

I know the calendar has worked before, but not sure exactly when and what has changed. I did upgrade to the 2.0.1 but not sure if it was working before that. I will try upgrading to 2.0.2 and see if that helps but think it must be an exchange issue.

I think I'm in the same boat kinda...

After I sync'd my iphone with outlook but kerio is the backend. Now I cant sync and most of the appointments are courpt and I can only use the kerio web interface..

So you think they may need to rebuild my account?
