Error code 80072FA8.

Error code 80072FA8 constantly showing on gmail/windows live and exchange outlook.

Working for several days, but without any changes to the phone Config - it stopped working.

However works okay once in home wifi zone, but not when mobile or in office.

I have already changed handsets (htc mozart), deleted and reset all email accounts , restored factory settings and tried mixes of contact syc/calender syc/email syc. Plus I have checked with my provider (vodafone) - all data is live and running etc.

I need to sync email with exchange.

I can deal with no additional emails accounts + contact etc.

Any ideas.

It seem to be quite a common problem across win 7 mobile.

Many thanks,

Hello llbhtc,

Thank you for posting.

That error code that you received is related to out of network coverage or connection issues. You have checked that it happens depending on your location at that moment.

There are most posts about this issue. I found for you some recommendations that hopefully will help you:

- Try again when you have better network coverage (suggest trying in different locations)

- Connect to Wi-Fi and try again ensuring you have internet.

- Re-enter your WL password by tapping on that WL account in Settings
