After many hours of searching the web and trying work arounds I seem to have fixed my exchange bug in Mail.
My problem was:
No mail in exchange account after installing Mavericks. Mailbox simply didnt build and no new mail was received. The Mavericks update didnt work out for me, so I was becoming more than frustrated.
I noticed Mail used another exchange server in accounts then I use on my iOS devices. Seems like the "auto detect" option in accounts chose another server. After overriding auto-detect I manually entered the server used on my iOS devices et voila, it works.
Only one small issue left..it looks like new mails are being pushed to Mail with a slight delay. I can live with that for now.

Mavericks' Mail Update for Gmail actually seems to have made the problem worse.
Any Sent email to oneself does not register in the Sent folder!
A send to yourself email can be made to appear in the Inbox by restarting Mail or changing and saving the account details. ie any action foecing a sync / read. Apple Mail in Mavericks is broken as far as Exchange is concerned.

+1 For broken mail delivery in Exchange 2010 with Mavericks Apple Mail. I get the same results in Outlook 2011.
Also, the bug report page has a bug - hangs when I click save, don't know if anyone else has managed to report this bug successfully.

With all this multitude of reports of the same problem, does anybody know if there is a mechanism to know whether Apple acknoledges the issue? At least if it does, we can hope for a solution at some point soon.

Weirdly, for me the solution to this was changing passwords in Active Directory (and hence, Exchange). I don't see why this should affect the previously delayed delivery of messages, but it did!

I haven't had any issues with Outlook 2011 - even when Mail would stop delivering. Although the update isn't perfect, I found that by changing mail delivery from automatically to every minute its at least usable again. Automatic (push) was not reliable.

I haven't downloaded the update yet, but I found that I could fix the original problem by deleting Accounts.plist....once I did that, the memory problems I was having went away and my emails downloaded just fine...

I'm also experiencing all the issues mentioned in this thread.
I want to first say, just so everyone is clear, Apple Mail does NOT support push mail for Exchange. In fact NO desktop Exchange client (on any version) supports push mail, not even Outlook 2011. Apple Mail uses EWS (Exchange Web Services) which is different from ActiveSync, which iOS and other mobile clients use.
This bug is really just poor software engineering in Apple Mail, and needs to be addressed by Apple immedietly.
