I setup corp sync on a Droid x  phone.    The screen lock now requires a code to unlock the screen.  Trying to disable in settings says iti is disabled by a phone administrator.  How do I change the active sync pollicy to allow it to be disabled on the handheld.?

The policy is set this way so if your phone is lost, there is a password and can be remotely wiped without warning.  you agreed to this when you set the account up.

There isn't a way to disable the screen lock password as long as the corp exchange email account exists on your phone.  If you want corp email, then you need lock password.

To change the policy, it would have to be done on the exchange server.  However, I think it would be very unlikely that any exchange admin in their right mind would disable security settings for your convenience.  

When I was on Android 1.6, I didn't need to set up a password, and 3rd-party apps worked fine.  Since upgrade to Android 2.2, it now supports exchange policies, and I believe 3rd-party apps have been updated as well, since a lot of comments complained they couldn't use the apps until this was implemented.

Sorry.
