That link will restore default options for everything in the iPhone.
What do you mean by 'passcode'? The same passcode that is used to unlock the phone etc?

If it is the exchange password, setup with your email account, then this will need to be changed in your email account settings, either on your machine or on the relevant server.

What version of Exchange are you running?  It may be part of a Policy and you may not be able to remove the passcode as a result.

yes you can but you have to remove it for the entire mailserver:

open Exchange Management Console
Expand: Organization Fonfiguration / Client Access
Highlight your Exchange Active Mailbox Policy
Click Properties on the right
select the "Password" TAB
and untick "Require password"
Click "OK"

Done!

that's assuming you are the admin of your exchange server, if you are just a user you could request that your IT department do this for you, otherwise don't set up the mail account on your iphone as there is no way round it if your mailserver is enforcing it.  sorry,

Tony

This is a policy on the server enforcing you to setup a passcode for security.  If you don't want a passcode - talk to your IT department - they will probably tell you that you can't use your iPhone with their server without a passcode.

I would not advise doing this as it is bad for security.
What is your issue with the passcode?

You can set the delay to not ask every time - just go to Settings, General, Passcode, Require Passcode:
Choose:
Immediately
After 1 Minute
After 5 Minutes
After 15 Minutes
After 1 Hour
After 4 Hours

Yes, you cannot change it on the iphone it has to be done on the server as per my earlier post, with the step by step instructions on how to do this.

Cheers,

Nope - the security setting to require a passcode is part of an Exchange Security policy, so you can't turn that off without turning it off for all - which I would not advise.
Just change the timeout and then your GM should be less annoyed.  The default is immediately - it annoyed me too the first time I setup my iPhone!!
