Can't edit iPhone calendar with Exchange sync

For any of you iPhone users out there who wanted it to replace your previous PDA, you may have run into this problem too. You may get meeting notifications as invites, instead of notifications. Or you may not be able to edit an appointment that you originally created within Outlook. This appears to be nothing more than a case-sensitivity issue. Here's the Apple support article: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1865. The default email address on the Exchange server has to match EXACTLY with what you have in your iPhone mail settings. If not, you can change one or the other to fix the problem. However, even after you've changed them to match each other, it doesn't appear to allow you to change any appointments that had been created prior to that. I just tried it myself and was able to edit a new one I created afterwards, but all the previous appointments still show up like invitations.

Here's the original article I ran across that pointed me in the right direction: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=518550
