Sharepoint 2013 Tasks list synchronization with outlook

My client is using exchange 2010 and wants the users to be able to connect the task lists to their outlook clients .

As I know the new synch to outlook feature is only compatible with exchange 2013 ,  I deactivated  The Farm level exchange Task synch feature .  Which enabled the previous connect to out look option on my list  , but there is a problem we are facing

after clicking  on the Connect to out look button , the task items are not showing in my outlook client though a user can create task from the outlook client and  when he saves it , the tasks are getting synched to the task list , but its not working the other way around .

I am getting the following error in the outlook , I would request you guys to please help me in this regard

Task 'SharePoint' reported error (0x80004005) : 'Failed to copy one or more items. For details, see the log file .'

Hi arsalan,

We can try to narrow down the issue see if it is outlook 2013 side issue, or SharePoint 2013 side issue,

1. Check if all users have this issue on the "Task" list.

2. Check if all users have this issue on other task lists.

3. Check if it could help with deleting the list from outlook, then re-connecting to outlook.

4. Compare if there are some differneces between working tasks and not working tasks when connected to outlook.

5. Check the log file mentioned from your above error message, see if we can get the more useful information.
