Sent items sync issue (not your common sent items goof up)
I searched around for this problem on this site and the ppcgeeks site, but really didn't find this documented anywhere, so here goes. Please don't flame me it this was solved somewhere, I looked, promise...
I am running WM6 (from helmi/rob mayer) and I use exchange server to sync email to my ppc6700 (over the air).
I've been just fine for the past 2 months, when all of a sudden (lat night) my "sent items" folder does not sync right. (I did not change any settings)
But this is not the common "sent items" goof up that other people make:
My problem is that when I send an email FROM my device:
1. I never get a copy of it in my handheld's "sent items" folder
2. My laptop (also connected to exchange) never gets the copy of this email in its "sent items" folder.
Just for a sanity check, whenever i send an email to myself (from handheld), I DO get it in my inbox (both laptop and handheld).
And if I send an email from my laptop, it DOES appear on the handheld's "sent items", so that part is working.
Even deleting email from the handheld does delete it from the exchange server. Furthermore, when i delete an email from the handheld's sent items folder, it DOES delete from the exchange server. So all of that is working just dandy.
The ONLY problem is when I SEND email from the handheld ONLY, that the message never appears in the "sent items" of both the handheld and the laptop. (The message does get sent, but the server never somehow retains a copy of it!). This part seems broken.
Of course I have the setting "keep copies of sent items in sent folder" ENABLED and also i have made sure the "sent items folder" is enabled for SYNC on both the handheld and the laptop (its a common setting anyways)
My hosting provider uses exchange server 2007
EDIT: I went ahead and deleted the activesync relationship and created a new one (this wiped the emaill off the device and re-downloaded it). This did NOT solve the problem. I still can't get the email in the sent items folders...
EDIT: My hosting provider told me they upgraded to the Service Pack 1 for Exchange Server 2007 over the past few days, anyone know if this might be the cause?
