Active directory exchange mobile password

taverny used Ask the Experts™
Hi experts,

I was wondering if there is a way to update the mobile device with new password for outlook on IPhone.
we have a policy that prompts our user to change their password on their computer every 60 days. of course when they change their password everything link to AD ( Exchange, Lync , sharepoint, ...) gets updated automatically but for those who have emails on their IPhone , they need to type the new password on it as well.

I wanted to know if there is a tool or a setting that would push the new password to the phone as well.

No. There is no method to push the new password to mobile devices natively.
The only way that you might be able to do it is with an MDM, although most of those use ActiveSync for the connection so have the same issue.

If you think about it - this is a good thing. If the device goes walkabout and you change the password, it will lock someone out of the account.



Thank you for your responses . I kind of knew the answer but as thought maybe someone found a trick to it.
thank you for your help.
