If you're configuring a Windows Phone 7 mobile phone to synchronize with an Exchange mailbox using Exchange ActiveSync, synchronization will fail under the following conditions:

Exchange ActiveSync mailbox policy is set to False.

If you have Windows Phone 7 mobile phones in your organization, you can set the AllowNonProvisionalDevices property to True or you can create a separate Exchange ActiveSync mailbox policy for users who have Windows Phone 7 mobile phones.
