I need to completely stop users access any form of push email on ANY handheld device but need to retain the ability for them to use OWA.
In the past they put the url or public ip addfress of the OWA server to get push email.
In an attempt to remove this access,I have DISABLED all of the following in Mobile Serives Properties:

Enable user initiated sync;
Enable up-to-date notifications via SMTP and Text Messaging;
Enbale notifications to user specified SMTP addresses;
Enable Direct Push over HTTPS;
Enable Outlook Mobile access;
Enable unsupported devices

However I still have someone with an iPhone telling me he can get push email.
HOW I stopped this using the above settings or do I need to do anything else?

Hi,

If you disable the "Enable Outlook Mobile access", 100% confirmed that the users cannot use the Activeysnc in respective of any mobile devices including the iphone.

Have you checked whether that iphone user is accessing thur IMAP or POP3 or OMA (web email from pda).

I did ask him if he was using the browser and he said no.

I dont understand the need for Activesync. I thought that it wasnt needed for push email.
I though you didnt need ActiveSync to get this working?

"Push emai" is the general team....In microsoft, push email means activesync. Examble. In Nokia, they have own "Push email" software which work indepently from activesync but it needs spereate server.

If you are just using the microsoft exchange server with OWA\Activesync enabled, then only push-email you have is activesync...So, if you disable the "Outlook Mobile access" and user cannot use the push-email.
