- My Tab has been having issues with my Exchange account since day one. I could hook up to the firm's server and sync contacts/calendar and send/receive emails with no issues, but I was getting a constant "Connection Error ([account])" error popping up on screen in a little black box every 30 seconds or so. If I re-booted the Tab it would stop doing it, but as soon as I started the Mail app it would come back. Extremely irritating and I was seriously considering returning the device.
I called Samsung (it was surprisingly easy to get through to a friendly real person who spoke perfect English, BTW) and was told to remove/re-install the account (which I had already done) and then try a factory reset. Neither of which worked. The rep spent a bunch of time on the phone to no avail, and then suggested I check with my IT department.
After about a half hour with the second IT guy at the firm, he simply tried disabling push and set it to sync every 5 minutes and I haven't seen that stupid little black box since. Shweet.
It still ain't exactly right (hopefully a fix is forthcoming in the highly anticipated update) but it works and I'm keeping it.07-21-2011 02:54 AM
- The exchange integration is the most non-functional part of my Tab. I ended up buying Moxier Mail for Tablets to get an Exchange sync that actually works. Sometimes only a few messages would show in a folder that should have shown dozens within the sync window. Other times I would send a message and it would go to the outbox but never send (boy did that cause some problems before I realized that was happening). The Touchdown for Tablets app also works, but I found I liked the look and feel of Moxier better.07-21-2011 01:15 PM
Not quite right, but I can live with it. I was about to return the thing, and now I'm just happy that I can keep it, because otherwise it's pretty sweet.07-26-2011 04:53 PM
It's an Android issue. When I did my search, the only thing I could find was one post from a guy in a Motorola forum who was having the exact same problem on his Xoom.07-27-2011 02:28 PM
- I'm no expert, but I would think checking every 5 minutes is actually going to use less battery than checking every 30 seconds.

Any suggestion on how to fix this is highly appreciated!09-09-2011 05:12 PM
- Me too also received the same error 'error in connection (account name). Here is the solution that worked for me. Add the corporate account using the following steps..
Settings > Account Sync > Add Account > Email (Do not select Exchange sync directly from this window) > Now select Exchange Sync and continue with the steps.....
Dont know how it makes differece in selecting Exchange sync after the selecting the Email instead selecting from the first window, but it worked for me..12-24-2012 03:24 AM
