An Exchange Server 2007 Client Access server responds slowly or stops responding when users try to synchronize Exchange ActiveSync devices with their mailboxes
Article ID: 2656040 - View products that this article applies to.
When users try to synchronize Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) devices with their mailboxes in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 environments, they encounter retryable errors. Additionally, the Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Client Access server responds slowly or stops responding.
This issue occurs because EAS devices make continuous retries when they encounter retryable errors during the synchronization. This causes redundant communication to the Client Access server.
To resolve this issue, install the following update rollup:

Note After you apply this update rollup, the Exchange Server 2007 server will drop EAS sessions if the number of sessions for a user exceeds the session limit. When the number of sessions is dropped lower than the limit, new requests can be automatically processed.
