Wondering if I can *guaranty* a user with ActiveSync DISABLED, will *only* be able to access their mailbox using Outlook over HTTPS.

I have tested this by disabling ActiveSync on my mailbox - immediately, my phone complained "cannot get mail", while Outlook over HTTPS continued to work.

The question is, HOW does IIS/Exchange know my Outlook client is really Outlook?

I can see in the IIS logs that the client OS is identified for Activesync.  But can an app either emulate Outlook, or simply screen scrape OWA, for that matter?

Can a 3rd party app "simulate" the Outlook connection process?  Does such an app already exist (on any mobile platform)?
