Hello Experts.

I want to setup pusmail with a Samsung Android phone and a Exchange2007 server.
I setup the account on the phone and it accepted.

Here is my problem, i only have contacts and calendar, no email.
And the "remote administrator" is setting restrictions on the phone.

How do i get the restrictions disabled?
How do i get email enabled?

    I am not sure what you mean, your emails will not start to flow unless you accept the "Remote administrator restrictions" when you are prompted for this you should click accept and then your emails should flow

    In the meantime i have done some googling aswell.

    The message on the phone is: "the server  ......  must be able to remotely control security features on your device"

    This disables the pattern unlock i was using and forces me to use a password.
    After that it works.

    But i want my pattern unlock back.

    The ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy "Default" on the Exchange2007 is the reason why.

    I can be disabled bij running the:
    Set-ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy “Default” -IsDefaultPolicy $False

    I only want to change that i can use the pattern unlock again.
    Does anybody know how?

    This is exactly what I told you, your exchange server is applying security enforcement on your mobile, are you the exchange admin ?

    Yes and True.  

    This is the issue

    I changed the settings, and all is fine.

    glad you had it sorted, my question was because a lot of people post here when they are not the exchange admins and there is not really a lot we can do for them
