I have used Android with Exchange email server in the past.
If I remember there was not much to do.
At the Android level, just type domainname\username then password, then provision the device to the end user.
From Exchange server, you can disable the usage of the phone, do remote Wipe, and may be few other tasks.
Recently I have heard of Airwatch, I wonder if it is an email server application like Exchange server? how to configure the smart phone to talk to Airwatch? how to make Airwatch manage the smart phone?
Any help will be very much appreciated.
