Is it possible to have different password policies for the same user one for network and domain access and one for active sync mobile devices. Would like to keep the current domain password policy for all users but assign a different policy for when they connect using their exchange activesync mobile device.

No, a user object can only have one password policy applied to it.   In 2008 you can use fine grained passwords to have different policies to different users and groups but each user can only have one policy.

Thanks

In short - No
If your using Server 2003 or earlier, or if Server 2008 is running at the 2003 functional level or earlier you can only have one policy per domain. When running at the 2008 level, you can have different polices applied to different users/groups - but there is no way to have different policies for different devices - passwords are an attribute of the USER account- not the COMPUTER or device.
