I recently purchased a Samsung tab 2 10.1. Everything seems to be working fine except that it does not properly sync with Outlook calendar and contacts -- the text on the notes section of both the calendar and contacts do not translate properly in Samsung Galaxy. This is what I see:

<html> 
<head> 
<meta name="Generator" content=Microsoft Exchange Server"> 
<!--converted from rtf--> 
<style>
<!--.EmailQuote {margin-left: 1pt; padding-left: 4pt; border-left: #800000 2px solid;}-->
</style>
</head> 
<body> 
<font face="Times New Roman, serif" size="3"> 
<div style="margin-bottom: 6pt; ">

Another instance of this infamous HTML code that shows up:

<html>
<head>
<meta name=”Generator” content=”Microsoft Exchange Server”> 
<!-- converted from text --> 
<style>
<!-- .EmailQuote { margin-left: 1pt; padding-left: 4pt; border-left: #800000 2px solid; } -->
</style>
</head> 
<body> 
<font size=”2”>
<div class=”PlainText”>Monday, January 11, 2010 3:53 PM:<br> <br>

Other devices like Motorola Droid4, Palm and iPhone have no problem syncing with the exchange. It's just this Samsung tablet that can't seem to sync properly. I called Samsung, Verizon and our Exchange server specialist. Samsung and Verizon asked me to do a factory reset. The problem not solved. I got a new Samsung unit, the problem remained. No one seems to know what, why and how. Can anyone help me?

Thank you.

Sorry, the gibberish that I typed to show what comes up on the notes section of my screen did not appear on my issue above. –  user28448 Feb 14 '13 at 19:16

ahhhh... what happened was, that this forum's web page parser mis-interpreted the actual code you saw and posted into this question which resulted in a blank... Have edited to illustrate... :) Protip, click on the '{}' in the toolbar when editing to enable the contents to not be actually interpreted by this site's parser :) –  t0mm13b Feb 14 '13 at 22:26
