hammerfest -> ActiveSync policy and lock device (9.Jun.2009 11:55:54 AM)


When I connect with my mobile phone, I am asked to enter a code to unlock it. The ActiveSync Mailbox policy is configured not to require a password.

There are over 1,000 mobile phones and they work fine with our current Exchange 2003 organization. Users are not required to enter any password.

Please, do you know how to configure the Exchange 2007 so that any connection through ActiveSync doesn't lock the remote device?

Thank you very much,

What are the settings on the device? Is the device configured to prompt for Unlock code after a certain duration of time??

Exchange 2007 If you do not configure Exchange ActiveSync policy to force users to prompt for password, Exchange by default does not make any changes to the device to prompt for passwords after a certain duration of time.

Let me know incase if you have have any questions/queries..

The devices is configured to sync without asking any password. Users never need to enter any password on their mobile phones, even they don't have to enter a pin when they turn it on.

If they are not migrated, I mean, if their mailbox is in Exchange 2003, then they don't need to enter any password on their phones. I just want to keep that setting, I don't want any user to get upset, they should work as they have done until now.

There is only one ActiveSync policy, called Default, with the following settings:
