UPDATED (again) The short answer to your question is NO. Outlook/Exchange clients either are capable or aren't capable of Remote-wipe. The Exchange policy simply expects that they support that feature.. If the phone supports Remote-wipe and you've accepted the policy (by being a so-called "Provisional Device"), then Exchange may send a request to wipe ...

It wouldn't be recommended to alter the permissions in IIS. You can control Activesync on a user by user basis in the properties of the user account in ADUC. Select the Exchange Features tab and disable the User Intitiated Synchronization feature.

The strict answer to your question "can I apply no policy?" is no. So next we have to look at what the user thinks the policy is. Does he not want to get the security pop-up when adding the account? The don't enable any of the options that cause that pop-up. The individual settings within ActiveSync policies fall in to two categories: those that affect ...

ActiveSync and IMAP are quite similar. Both ActiveSync and IMAP IDLE maintain a dormant TCP session for inbound push notifications. IMAP IDLE handles 'push' email as well FYI. Both are quite conservative with bandwidth usage. Bandwidth consumption in practice will be more determined by configuration parameters than protocol choice. Setting things like '...

ActiveSync (which the iPhone uses) works over ports 80 and 443 (preferably 443). Yes you will need to forward HTTPS traffic to your Exchange server for this to work. I really recommend the Exchange ActiveSync test over at testexchangeconnectivity.com - it is one of the best tools you can use to help you set it up properly and diagnose any problems. ...

Okay the first thing to is to try https://testconnectivity.microsoft.com/ If a server error 500 occurs it might be related to the fact that the user is in a protected group, and thus some inheritance gets removed every hour.. From http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd439375%28EXCHG.80%29.aspx To check whether inheritance is disabled on the user: ...

Your question is truncated (stopping with "but is"), but I suspect you were asking if there is some "easier" log file than the IIS logs. While it's possible that the "Security" event log could yield some information (depending on how your Audit Policy is configured) the logs for the IIS Web Site hosting the Exchange-ActiveSync folder really are your best bet....

Further research and trial-and-error troubleshooting has confirmed that, if as stated in my question the solution must not result in using a non-stock e-mail app on the Galaxy S5 phone, it's not possible to use the fingerprint scanner without disabling the password requirement on the Exchange Server. So the answer is, "it can't be done" (without using a ...

This is usually resolved by setting the inheritable permissions flag on the user in question. Under ADUC, go to View -> Advanced Features to expose the Security tab under the user's profile dialog. Return to the user's settings in ADUC and choose the Security tab. Click on Advanced ensure that "Include Inheritable Permissions From This Object’s Parent"...

Take a look at https://technet.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/hh529949(v=exchg.150).aspx There is an interesting line at the bottom of that page that implies the effective maximum limit is about 33% less then the limit you have configured. Given the default for active sync is 10mb and you are seeing problems around 7, that would make sense. Try increasing to ...

If Exchange is configured correctly, you should only need port 443 open on your firewall.

Microsoft has a "tool" (in the form of a web site and robotic ActiveSync client) that might help you out: https://www.testexchangeconnectivity.com/ This will help you, especially, since you don't have your own ActiveSync client to test with. I have yet to have an E2K3 installation of any age "just work" out of the box with ActiveSync. Typically I find ...

No, but you can ask exchange if a user is using activesync. You need to find if Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync exists on that mailbox. You need to look for the Glen Scales wrote a script to do just that. You can also parse the logs. I couldn't find it on his site so here's the code: servername = wscript.arguments(0) set shell = createobject("wscript.shell") ...

No an administrator can't access you text messages and call record. Supported Exchange/ActiveSync policies on iPhone are described in iPhone Enterprise Deployment Guide Enterprise can also use a profile distribution service, this allow enterprise to push policies to the iPhone remotely. These policies can almost force any settings of the iPhone. See the PDF ...

I actually figured this error out myself. I installed exchange 2010 on an existing 2007 organization the problem was, I needed to add the existing 2007 server to the group 'exchange trusted subsystems' and the administrative account (that is used to log onto the exchange 2007 serveR) to the exchange trusted subsystem as well. This solved all the issues ...

It sounds like backscatter (NDR spam) to me, rather than your server being an open relay. Exchange Server 2003 by default is not an open relay. You can check whether or not your Exchange server is an open relay by using any number of online tests. You can help prevent backscatter spam in a few ways: Disable NDR's on your Exchange server. Filter email sent ...

If you disabled the "Require SSL" option for the Exchange virtual directory ("/Exchange") this means the virtual directories for Active Sync ("/Microsoft-Server-Active-Sync" on Windows Server 2003) and Outlook Mobile Access ("/OMA") can still be set to "Require SSL" and the data between the server and your iPhone will still be encrypted. This only concerns ...

The thing to remember is that everything in PowerShell is an object. When you use Format-Table, the output is a formatting object and that's what is getting passed in to export CSV. If you pipe the results of the Format-Table command to Get-Member, you'll see what I mean. Get-ActiveSyncDevice | Get-ActiveSyncDeviceStatistics | sort-object status, ...

I ran into this yesterday and figured others might want to see this in the future. Didn't see this particular issue listed on SF. This seems to be a known issue. See here: Senders receive a message copy after they click "Reply to All" in Exchange ActiveSync. They state a workaround as: To work around this problem, manually change any existing ...

Exchange ActiveSync is on by default in Exchange 2003 and later, although there may be things that you need to set up to get EAS access through your firewall. Apple's so-called Enterprise Integration web page has two docs that may help: this one covers the setup steps required for Exchange 2003, and this one covers what the iPhone user has to do.

Looks like it's controlled by one of the bits in msExchOmaAdminWirelessEnable. Here's the bit description listed by someone in this post. 1 (bit 0) = 1 to disable Server Activesync, 0 to enable it 2 (bit 1) = 1 to disable OMA, 0 to enable it 4 (bit 2) = 1 to disable Always Up-To-Date (AUTD), 0 to enbable it Looks like the value is a decimal value in AD ...

There is no current way to sync a BB "over the air". What you need is a Blackberry Enterprise Server, which sits parallel to your Exchange box and the BBs communicate with it, and it talks to the mail server. Or just wait for Exchange 2010. :)

To my knowledge there is no ActiveSync support in Blackberry devices. RIM's business model is such that they require you to use their their "services" (as a tax on the system, in my mind) and their sync software. There is a third party service, AstraSync that proports to do syncronization over-the-air to Blackberry devices via ActiveSync, but I have no ...

This error relates to a difference between a mail item stored on the Exchange Server, and the item stored locally on the machine. Often this issue occurs when using OST files in outlook to work offline. A common reason for this error is different timestamps on messages, modification of an email in both outlook (offline) and owa, or a out of date OST file. ...

My 2 cents... BES is by far the best enterprise messaging platform out there. RIM's network is extremely reliable and as far as I know, hasn't gone down except for a few extremely well publicized incidents a few years ago. The centralized management features are absolutely fantastic. That being said, if they have a Storm, that means Verizon. Go to ...

With the new 5.0 version of it and BlackBerry's with 5.0 software it really becomes a very tight tie to the user's mailbox. Here is a list of all the features of the 5.0 server http://na.blackberry.com/eng/services/server/5/compare.jsp If your company is one that likes to lock stuff down, you'll be able to do a much better job of that with the BB's.

ActiveSync has proven itself to be very reliable for my Customers. Microsoft is licensing ActiveSync to Apple and Google, so you'll find it in iPhone and Android devices, as well as on Windows Mobile device. Blackberry Enterprise Server (at least 4.5-- I haven't used 5.0) seems to be overly complex in its "plumbing", and that worries me. ActiveSync is a ...
