I'm configuring an Exchange 2019 server for a client and the business owner saw the permission request for mobile device wipe when setting up the email on his phone. He is now insisting that he doesn't want his phone to be able to be wiped from the server. I've emphasized to him that this has been a feature of Exchange since at least 2010, and that it's an important security feature but he is adamant.

As far as I'm aware there isn't anyway to actually prevent the server from being able to do this short of having him connect IMAP which I don't want to even bring up.

Am I correct in this or is there something I've overlooked?
