iPhone 2.0.1 update destroyed my inbox

Posted by onlydarksets on August 5, 2008

So, 2.0.1 is outContact loading is zippier and SMS load faster.

And it cooked my Exchange inbox.

I kept getting a “Cannot connect to mail server” error.  This was strange, though, because Calendar and Contacts synced fine.  I tried disabling and enabling the Mail account, but no dice.

Finally, I fixed it by doing the following:

In Outlook:

  1. Create a new folder called “Inbox2”
  2. Move all of the messages from “Inbox” to “Inbox2”
  3. Sync Outlook,

On the iPhone:

  1. Open the Inbox folder (and let it sync)
  2. Open the Inbox2 folder (and let it sync)

In Outlook:

  1. Move all of the messages back to “Inbox”

On the iPhone:

  1. Open the Inbox folder (and let it sync)

I have had something similar happen on WM before, and it turned out to be a bad message in my inbox on Exchange.  However, I don’t think that was the case here, because the iPhone had every message that was showing in Outlook.  Anyway, problem solved worked around.
