Exchange 2007 SP3 + Active Sync

Posted on 2014-11-11
Last Modified: 2014-11-13
I am looking for a solution, where users via their devices, that use Microsoft's active sync go through say

When they go through OWA they go through  I want this URL  not to use active sync at all.

Can this be done via Exchange 2007 SP3?

Theoretically, you could, but I have to ask, is there a specific reason why?

Yes  more for security reasons to separate the two.
How can it be done ?

It was asked by management and they want them separated due to security reasons ?

Simply changing the url does not change the security landscape.  Management has to understand, that whether one address or many are used, ultimately, the service requests for OWA and ActiveSync, get answered by the same mechanism, your CAS [or Client Access Server].  The key is securing each of the services path's to the CAS [e.g. - Using SSL, WindowsIntegrated Authentication and FBA (Forms Based Authentication)].

Thanks Saige let me check those articles.

The overall issue they have is, if you are able to obtain my user ID & password you can get into our network.
We want to have a infrastructure where, if the device is not configured to enter our network, then they cannot get in.

configuring their email with the stolen user ID & Password and getting the users email.  We want it where devices are also are authorized the internal network.
