Disable unauthorized exchange 2003 active sync users

I have a directive to disable users from checking email on their personal smartphones. I have disabled outlook mobile access, user initiated synchronization and up-to-date notifications for these users and it appears they can still get their emails. What else can I do?  We need to keep OWA enabled.

restart the IIS,
once a phone has a connection it doesn't get forced to re-authenticate as long as the initial connection is maintained.

I rebooted the server after these changes we made.

This appears to be a global change. I need to restrict some users and enable others.

check this article out.
also I seem to remember someone badgering me into manually restarting IIS even after rebooting to correct a similar issue... worth a try.

manually re-starting the IIS Service fixed the issues with iPhone users, but some smartphones use OWA and you can not block that.
