I would like to limit what users can use Outlook Anywhere and ActiveSync.  By default I know everything is enabled.  I would like to have both disabled on a per user basis by default and then if needed they can be enabled.  What is the best way to accomplish this?

You do it specific to the users mailbox in the properties of the users mailbox.

That explains how to enable and disable a user.  I want to know how to make all current and new users disabled by default and then as we want to enable them then we will go in and do it one at a time.

You might have to create the user using the Shell instead of the Exchange Management Console and just add the options for it to be disabled that way.  That's the only way I could think of.

You will have to run the Exchange powershell command:

get-user | set-casmailbox -activesyncenabled:$false -owaenabled:$false

This will disable all users for owa and activesync.  There is no default way to turn this off for new users.

Thanks for the help guys.  This isn't what I was hoping to accomplish but it may be the only way to do this.
