SBS Server 2003 Exchange ActiveSync forbidden

Recently I worked on a customer who had Exchange 2003 and a new iPhone he wanted to connect but was failing. The phone actually verified and connected but they kept get a message of cannot get mail.  Their first issue was an invalid SSL certificate but once we cleared that up the iPhone was still kicking back an error it could not get email and an android device we tested with gave a access denied error. The tool at https://www.testexchangeconnectivity.com gave the following error

An HTTP 403 forbidden response was received. The response appears to have come from Unknown. Body of the response: <body><h2>HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden</h2></body>

I saw several suggestions for this on the web but their problem ended up being that their previous IT had configured a website on port 80 and redirected the default website to port 8082. Once we switched this back everything started working and the support tool passed all tests.

If you have additional issues this post is a good resource.
