Nexus 5 default email client not syncing with exchange

Hello all,

Just received a Nexus 5. I can no longer add my exchange account. I get the error titled "Couldn't finish" "Couldn't sign in".

I run exchange server 2010, have a valid SSL, and passes all Microsoft exchange tests. Also works fine on my previous phone which is a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 with android 4.2, an iPad running iOS 7, Mac mail and Outlook 2013 on windows 8. 

Anyone else having issues or know of a way around this? Anyway to highlight this issue to google directly?

All the best.

I am having a different issue, but Exchange sync broke for me as well. Now it will download all messages when I add an account but will not sync thereafter. I am giving K-9 Mail a try.

I'm also having a similar issue with my company's Zimbra servers. I'll set up an Exchange account and the initial sync will work just fine but then the syncing stops. A manual refresh will either do nothing or will start a loop where the phone starts and stops a sync about once every second or so. I've switched to IMAP in the mean time but really need Exchange as I get many time sensitive emails.
