Exchange 2003 ActiveSync permissions

Hey all

I have a client with about 30 users running Exchange 03 on Server 03
A couple of those users have iPhones/Droids etc. connecting to Exchange via ActiveSync
The owner would like to lock down ActiveSync to only allow approved users to connect their device to their mailbox
So my question is, do I have to manually go into each user mailbox and disable the 'User Initiated Synchronization'? Or is there a more automated process?

Thanks!
Ben

With Exchange 2003 - manual is the only way I'm afraid.  If you had Exchange 2007/2010, then it gets a whole lot easier.

Would I need to disable both 'User Initiated Synchronization' and 'Outlook Mobile Access' for each user? Or just one of those...

Any particular reason for the B grade, which suggests I didn't provide a complete answer for you and you had to do some research yourself to answer the question?

No perticular reason, 'Excellent' seemed a bit strong, as it wasnt the answer I wanted to hear ;D

Well - just because you didn't want to hear the answer, doesn't make it any less correct an answer.

Sometimes the answer to a question is "no" or "it can't be done" and those are both valid answers too.

Short answer is what you wanted to do can't be done in an automated way - I told you that in my first comment, so I don't see any reason for a B grade.

Please have a read of the following help page, which should guide you to the correct grade to give a question based on the circumstances:

'Excellent' in my opinion would be to offer an alternative solution like, ADModify.NET to automate the process for example
Its what seperates a 'Good' answer from an 'Excellent' one...

Fair comment - had forgotten about that as I haven't used it for a while.
