Make sure you setup the account as ActiveSync and not IMAP.
When setting up the account, it defaults to imap (which works only for emails) but does not sync calendar / contacts.
When I setup my first account that uses exchange, It didn't work, and I realized it had defaulted to IMAP.
I deleted the account, and re-created as such:
Settings > Accounts > Add Account (Button) > Email, Calendar and Contacts
This should give you a screen to input your e-mail address.
At this point, touch anywhere on the screen (not the input box) to get rid of the keyboard.
Notice the 'Advanced' button at the bottom.
Now choose 'Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync and input your settings.

Thanks for your reply. Since my original post I have upgraded and subscribed to Office 365 Midsize Business. All has gone well, everything has been migrated over and all has been synced correctly.
Except my BlackBerry Z10 where Calendar syncs everything going forward, but only three months back. My BB PlayBook is the same (only three months back). However, my desktop and iPads sync all events going back many years.
I have followed your instructions by deleting my old e-mail accounts on both my Z10 and my PlayBook and reinstalled them using the Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, but it is still the same - only three months back on both BB devices.
As my other devices sync all events going back many years, and as there used to be an option within the old BB Desktop Manager to sync All Events, I am sure the restriction I now have must be a BB issue and not an Office 365 issue. Do you agree, and do you know where I can get to some settings that allow me to change the three month default?
