Here's the deal: the last email that pinged my work account over the weekend was a reminder that I forwarded to myself on Saturday. It sync'd to both my Android phone (Google Nexus One running Android v2.2) and my HP TouchPad tablet. On Sunday, I went into work in the evening to get as short evaluation form written up, and when I unlocked my terminal, there was a message from Outlook: "Changes made by the administrator require Outlook to be restarted." Okay, whatever. I restarted Outlook and everything was working.
But...whatever changes IT made to the email server have successfully broken the email capabilities of both my phone and my tablet. The company tech support office is clueless; they tried to re-walk me through an account delete and reconfigure, but as soon as I try to log into the server, the connection fails. The tech support guy was even able to configure a Motorola Droid in the office with my email account, and it worked.
Since they don't "officially" support non-company phones, they've got nothing else to offer. Of course, our IT department doesn't actually talk to the tech support department, so tech support has got no way to even verify whether ActiveSync was updated or modified.
Anybody out there know whether a Microsoft update might have done this?
