iPhone Authentication Questions.

We are testing iPhone’s at our company on Exchange 2007 and may switch from Blackberry’s.  A number of users have changes their active directory passwords as part of our domain policy but forget to update the iPhone and don’t get emails.  They didn’t need to do this with the Blackberry’s.  Is there a workaround for this?

I have read some articles on certificate based authentication but that looks be used to secure ActiveSync replication and not eliminating the need to enter domain credentials.

Thanks for your help.

    There's no way around this.  The users will need to update the passwords on the devices as this is the only means for authenticating the device itself.  The blackberry is identified different and therefore doesn't need that requirement.

    On a side note, I'd suggest testing Android's as well.  I've found the email client to be far more enjoyable on Android (not to mention the screen size).  Just using my iPhone last night to check out IOS5 and I felt like I went back in time - it just feels so old...

    Thanks for the information.  So am I correct with how the certificate based authentication works or what it is used for?

    I'm not 100% sure as I haven't used it before, but I believe you are correct.
