Re: Email 4.0.1 "Waiting for sync" on corporate Exchange/Activesync

I had similar issue, seems it was working when i upgraded to ICS, but after I did a reset (as I had a rebooting issue) I can not set up a exchange account.

Tried following and it seems to be working (at lease for me).

Create a PIN first.

Set up a account (Please do manual set up, if you do automatic set up it won't work)

Yes, will someone from Sony Mobile give some sort of update??

My phone book & email is managed by the exchange server.  Now I have a phone that has no phone book and no email.

This is a serious issue.  Can you give us some update of what to expect?

Re: Email 4.0.1 "Waiting for sync" on corporate Exchange/Activesync

I'm back.

Our ICS update uses the Android ICS vanilla client for Exchange sync, which means that it supports the following security policies.

PROVISION_DEVICE_PASSWORD_ENABLED Yes

PROVISION_MIN_DEVICE_PASSWORD_LENGTH Yes

PROVISION_ALPHA_DEVICE_PASSWORD_ENABLED Yes

PROVISION_MAX_INACTIVITY_TIME_DEVICE_LOCK Yes

PROVISION_MAX_DEVICE_PASSWORD_FAILED_ATTEMPTS Yes

PROVISION_DEVICE_PASSWORD_EXPIRATION Yes

PROVISION_DEVICE_PASSWORD_HISTORY Yes

PROVISION_ALLOW_CAMERA Yes

PROVISION_ALLOW_SIMPLE_DEVICE_PASSWORD No

PROVISION_ATTACHMENTS_ENABLED Yes

PROVISION_REQUIRE_DEVICE_ENCRYPTION Yes

PROVISION_REQUIRE_MANUAL_SYNC_WHEN_ROAMING Yes

PROVISION_MAX_ATTACHMENT_SIZE Yes

PROVISION_MIN_DEVICE_PASSWORD_COMPLEX_CHARS Yes

PROVISION_REMOTE_WIPE Yes

PROVISION_ALLOW_STORAGE_CARD No

PROVISION_ALLOW_UNSIGNED_APPLICATIONS No

PROVISION_ALLOW_UNSIGNED_INSTALLATION_PACKAGES No

PROVISION_ALLOW_WIFI No

PROVISION_ALLOW_TEXT_MESSAGING No

PROVISION_ALLOW_POP_IMAP_EMAIL No

PROVISION_ALLOW_IRDA No

PROVISION_ALLOW_HTML_EMAIL No

PROVISION_ALLOW_BROWSER No

PROVISION_ALLOW_CONSUMER_EMAIL No

PROVISION_ALLOW_INTERNET_SHARING No

PROVISION_ALLOW_BLUETOOTH No

PROVISION_PASSWORD_RECOVERY_ENABLED No

PROVISION_DEVICE_ENCRYPTION_ENABLED No

PROVISION_REQUIRE_SIGNED_SMIME_MESSAGES No

PROVISION_REQUIRE_ENCRYPTED_SMIME_MESSAGES No

PROVISION_REQUIRE_SIGNED_SMIME_ALGORITHM No

PROVISION_REQUIRE_ENCRYPTION_SMIME_ALGORITHM No

PROVISION_ALLOW_DESKTOP_SYNC No

PROVISION_ALLOW_SMIME_ENCRYPTION_NEGOTIATION No

PROVISION_ALLOW_SMIME_SOFT_CERTS No

PROVISION_ALLOW_REMOTE_DESKTOP No

PROVISION_UNAPPROVED_IN_ROM_APPLICATION_LIST No

PROVISION_MAX_CALENDAR_AGE_FILTER No

PROVISION_MAX_EMAIL_AGE_FILTER No

PROVISION_MAX_EMAIL_HTML_BODY_TRUNCATION_SIZE No

PROVISION_MAX_EMAIL_BODY_TRUNCATION_SIZE No

I suggest that you check what policies that are set on your server and if any policies that are not listed as supported is set that most likely the reason why you get this problem. That is at least my theory, since I'm not able to re-produce the problem using supported policies.

Re: Email 4.0.1 "Waiting for sync" on corporate Exchange/Activesync

Johan,

Is it possible this is just an issue with Office 365 (as opposed to a traditional Exchange setup)?  That is one comminality betwen David Simmons and myself.

The security settings for Office365 are very simple.  I've got the most basic (and default) settings for security, so I'm not trying to force it in some strange mode.

Thoughts?

It seems that I might not have been clear enough about this problem. My last post about the security policies is a theory of mine which perhaps could get your sync working, but this is still being looked at by our developers and no definitive solution has been identified yet unfortunately.

I promise that I'll get back to you as soon as I have more information about this.
