Exchange 2010 Text Message feature. Can this be disabled?

Just testing Exchange 2010 right now. The text message feature in Outlook Web App and Outlook 2010 might seem nice but I don't think users would appreciate personal text messages being downloaded from their phone into their Inbox and I think mailboxes get cluttered up enough now with email never mind text messages.

I know I can disable the Active Sync policy setting for Allowing Text Messaging but all that does is disable texting on the phone. I am guessing its a GPO that does this but is it an Office 2010 GPO or 2007? Most of our population is 2007. Need some help here.

Hi,

You can disable text message synchronization by changing the ActiveSync options on your phone. Uncheck Text Messages.

Hope this helps,

Has anyone found a way to totally remove this from even being viewed in Outlook?  

Have Mobile options just removed so it does not raise a question from the user period?
