How do I disable Exchange ActiveSync access by default for new users in AD?

We are trying to lock down the ActiveSync feature for mobile devices, having it available only to people I manually enable it for.  Is there a way to make it so when a new user is built in Active Directory, Exchange ActiveSync is disabled by default?

Does changing the settings in First Organization > Global Settings > Mobile Services for ActiveSync completely disable it for all users, or does it just make it disabled by default at the user level?  (Meaning, I could then enable it on a user-by-user basis).  I want to find the easiest way to allow ActiveSync only to about 5% of the company...

You cannot disable it by default for all new users without a template.
If you turn it off in Global Settings that is it for everyone.

Microsoft work on the basis of everything enabled and then disable for each user.

The only thing you can do is use something like admodify.net to disable it across all users then enable it for each user as required. For new users you will have to put it in to the account setup procedure or use a template.

If I turn off the global and turn on one users does the one user work ????

Would not think so.... Looking for way to have every new user created have mobile Services OFF.

Thanks,

get-Mailbox -ResultSize Unlimited| set-CASMailbox -ActiveSyncEnabled:$False

This will disable it for everyone then you can enable on a per mailbox basis in the GUI or by script.
