Question about Exchange connection, IMAP, POP3, remote wipe, active sync, autodiscover, active directory,
Posted on 2013-11-04
I have a question about how the different exchange protocols work when setting them up on your phone or mobile device
I have a few exchange accounts..... that when setting up you use the autodiscover, and etc. and away it goes...
But I noticed that there is a setting in active sync that can remote wipe your phone...
Well this is concerning to me... So I want to understand the available options if they are enabled on the exchange server.
Like I said I have a few exchange accounts, and on one of them, I would take the risk of the remote wipe... but the other is a customer and I don't want them to be ablew to do this.
So I setup IMAP to their exchange server..... But since I am not an exchange guru, I didn't know if they could still remote wipe, and if my phone is in their system.. I do connect with my ads / exchange account in the customers domain...
I need to know pro / con of imap and pop3.
It appears that when I cleanup mailbox via outlook, this isn't replicated to my phone on the imap connection... my phone still holds all the old emails and etc...
What does POP3 offer or not offer?
Also I want to keep email on the server, I don't want it to download to my phone, then no longer be available via the outlook client.
One final question....
Also on client email system, I cleanup and delete emails.
I notice that there is a folder tab in the Outlook clinet
Then recover Deleted items button.
My question isn't about how to recover items.
It more of an understanding if you selected all from this window and choose delete.
Would this totally cleanup your mailbox, and make them unavailable via archives and restores?
