Exchange sub folder sync
I have an iPhone that's updated on the latest software updates. I'm syncing to my Exchange account so I rarely sync with my computer. The issue is that some of my folders don't sync correctly with the exchange over 3g or wireless. My inbox always syncs, but my trash and sent folders are blank when i click into them. Also, I have a folder under the inbox that never syncs.
My co-worker is also experiencing this issue. Is there a workaround? Please note that I don't have access to the exchange server as it's managed by my company's email group.
Thanks in advance for any help given.

Even after clicking said folder on the iPhone, and waiting a minute or two, it never populates with email?
As a test, create a new sub-folder in the Inbox, move a few items to it and see if it syncs. If it does, move all those items from the non-syncing folder to it...
Even after waiting it does not. The new folder option does work, but it's temperamental (I've tried it before). After a while, it'll simply stop syncing again. Sometimes my sent folder will sync, but it'll be empty two weeks later (I think it syncs sometimes, and later, when it doesn't, it knows there are more recent messages, so it deletes the messages on the phone, but it never correctly grabs the more recent messages).

Have you tried creating a rule in exchange? Like a rule on the subfolder that will copy the email to the folder if it is from person X.
I've noticed that folders only seem to sync when you create it after the initial sync. So what I would do is create a new folder like @sent and create a rule that says copy all email from sent to @sent. You should be able to see it after that.
hope this helps.
Also my co-worker has removed the account and re-added, but over time the problem will come back. It fixes it initially, but not permanently.
If that's the case, could I simply create a new folder, move all mail to that folder, and redirect any current rules to the new folder? I understand you can't do this with the sent and trash folders since they aren't created by the user in Exchange.

I'm doubtful a switch between on/off of the SSL option fixed it. I'm chalking it up to the soft reset even though I've done that before.

Go to Settings > Mail Contacts and Calendars > Select your Exchange account > Look down the page until you see "Mail Folders to Push" and there you will find the only folders you can sync. I sync Inbox, Sent Items and Deleted Items.

Re: Exchange sub folder sync
My coworkers are having this issue also... Have you also tried going in and telling Mail Days to Sync? I found that was my problem. On my iPhone, Mail Days to Sync was set to only 3 days. I have reset it to No Limit and now see all the emails in my subfolders. I've also went into Push and selected which subfolders I wanted to sync.
