What permissions needed on a Mobile device to use Exchange policies like Remote Wipe?

I'm reading into Microsoft Exchange and Client Policies that can apply to Mobile devices, including Android.

My question is, how is it possible for ActiveSync policies to issue a Remote Wipe against a mobile device?
Does the mobile device have to be on the domain for Exchange to have Administrative Access to the system?
Or is there some type of root access that is granted to Exchange once an ActiveSync mailbox is setup on the mobile device?

As long as the policies are configured to (as a minimum) force a PIN as a password, then with that enabled and the device configured with that Policy, then Remote Wipe is able to be performed if the device is lost or stolen.

Also make sure you enable a refresh interval in the Activesync Policies so that the devices check in for Policy Changes once in a while, or they never will.

The Remote Wipe will factory reset the device - so beware of any data / apps that might be lost in the process / warn users if they use their own mobiles that they face losing everything if the device is wiped.
