I'm trying to set up Exchange accounts on multiple IPhone4's with a customer.

The server is a Microsoft SBS2011.

When connecting to Exchange it seems like the SBS is applying some strange security settings to the IPhone.

Suddently the IP wants to be configures with a 4 digit password to unlock!
Normally you could just go into settings - General settings Lock with code and just remove the code.
This is not possible as long as you keep the Exchange account!
If you delete Exchange account they you are able to remove the "Lock with code" again.
Anyone know if I can remove this setting on SBS?

The settings you are after are under Client Access in the "Organization configuration" section of Exchange Management Console - look under the "Password" tab of the Windows SBS Mobile Mailbox policy.

If you disable the PIN requirement - you will lose the ability to Remotely Wipe the phone if anyone loses their iPhone / Mobile Phone, so I would not recommend that you change the setting.

You can change the iPhones to not prompt you for the PIN if you don't use the phone for a set period of time, e.g., 2 hours, which is less annoying, but removing it completely is not a wise move IMHO.
