Exchange security policy for Android phones Active Sync

Hi all,

I have a small Exchange server that I would like to connect a couple Android based phones to. During setup I get a message that tells me that Exchange requires you to enable security policies and then presents a list: Erase all data, limit password etc.

I'm running Windows 2008 SBS with Exchange 2007.

Where is this policy maintained in Exchange? Can I disable it so that the users do not get this message?

I assume that the policy only allows the Exchange admin to carry out these actions but I'd like to make sure what the policy does and how I can adjust it.

You need to go into to EMC (Exchange management Console)

1. Go to Exchange management console (Exchange 2007 or 2010)

2. Expand Organization - - > Client Access - - > then right click on your client access policy

3. Click the password tab and uncheck require password

4. That’s it

I've seen those settings, but I'm unsure if they will prevent that screen from coming up on the phone talking about  enabling security policies. The language is a little vague to a non-technical end user.

I'd like to prevent the policy from being pushed to the phone totally. Anyway of doing that?

That was it, I decided to just go ahead and try it and the policy message never appeared...very transparent to the user. Thanks!
