Cmdlets to change all mailboxes to 'ActiveSync Mailbox Policy' to the 'Default' policy

Is there a global cmdlet in Exchange 2010 that will change all users 'ActiveSync Mailbox Policy' to the 'Default' policy. It looks like we have three ActiveSync Mailbox Policies set up by different admins for testing purposes over the years, but they are all identical configs.

Ultimately I want to delete the two and leave the Default policy alone for all users.

Thanks in advance.

This will do it:

Get-Mailbox | Set-CASMailbox -ActiveSycnMailboxPolicy (Get-ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy "Default Policy").identity

Here, you can check which users are assigned which policy:

Set a variable for the policy name:
$ActiveSyncPolicyName = (Get-ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy “Default Policy“).Identity.DistinguishedName

Run the command to see who has the policy:
Get-CASMailbox -Filter {ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy -eq $ActiveSyncPolicyName} |ft Displayname, ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy, Servername
