Hi our company are going the iphone and ipad route. Is there a way to set up a group in AD to link up with Exchange 2007.  Need to set up password on the phones, new iphone os upgrades, also disable the active sync for users who dont have company iphones.

Thank you for all your help.

If you have Webmail enabled on your exchange server, your are ready.  The phones do not need anything special, they do not really need another another account in AD or Exchange.  The user's use their Webmail login info to access email.  

In the phones, you leave off the /owa from the URL - As long as you set it up as an exchange account.  Login and password are stored in the phone also.
Did I understand the question correctly?
