I have a SBS 2011 box with pre installed Exchange 2010 Version 14.3 (Build 123.4)
Users are receiving emails at iPhone. I noticed a strange thing; even after changing password of windows logon account, users can still receive & send emails at iPhone even without updating the new password in the iPhone exchange account settings.

iPhone asked the new password after restarting the server only.

Is it the genuine procedure or is the server got compromised? If its a policy, where to find & modify the policy.

Thanks for reading the concern.

Perfectly normal. Authentication issues a token for a length of time and that token os still valid after a password change. You won't have to re-auth until the token expires. You really don't want to mess with this behavior. It has ramifications well beyond exchange.

What is the token age normally? Worried if my server is compromised or not.

Several hours. Is there a reason you think the server is compromised?

Thanks.
User having admin privilege  reported a suspicious attachment he opened.
I submitted it to Avira; now it is added to the virus definition.

A few months back one of my friend lost money as his google mail password was hacked & hacker successfully diverted some expected payments to his account. The friend click almost the same type of link in pdf file & innocently entered his password to the phishing link.

How does your email signature look on mobiles?

Do your employees use mobile devices to reply to emails? With mobile becoming increasingly important to the business world, it is in your best interest to make sure that your email signature looks great across all types of devices.

Well, as a general rule, admins should have separate admin accounts. For example, I may have an account called "cliff" that is a standard user that has an exchange mailbox and is a standard user, and "admin-cliff" that does *not* have an exchange mailbox and is used for admin tasks.  Admin accounts are further secured with 2FAband/or all external access blocked. That way admin credentials would never be leaked how you described.

Yes! You are correct, I would advice my friends to make separate admin accounts.
What is 2FAband?

As google mail has an option to sign out from all devices. So after changing the password of gmail, we click on "sign out all other web sessions", I guess this ensure that all other devices are forced logout.

How can we do it with on premises exchange 2010/2013 or 2016 users sessions.
