    iPhone on Exchange 2007 question

    Advertisement



    My company is looking to deploy iPhones to some of the users here. We are currently only supporting BB's on a BES and like the fact that we can wipe and force password policy's on the BB's.

    Exchange 2007 has ActiveSync built in and I can create a policy to force passwords to Windows Mobile devices.......but my question is this...

    Can I enforce the same password policy on a iPhone. Does the iPhone have a password feature or is it just the SLIDER to unlock the phone ?

    Anyone have iPhones setup on their Exchange 2003/2007 server with a Policy to enforce passwords ?

    The passcode that you'd enter every time your iPhone wakes from sleep or gets turned on is simply set by the phone is is only 4 digits. The Exchange account (and all mail) are setup and the password is saved in the phone and you never have to change it again. I believe you can enforce the policy

    Is your Domain account listed in the exceptions? Listing it will eliminate the passcode.

    nope...haven't put any exceptions on devices/policy...all we wanted to do is enforce password on the device and lock after 15mins

    The passcode policy is ON by default so I guess I'm not sure where to direct your to look now?

    I had some brief experience with Exchange on my iPhone, don't know if it will offer any insight. I used a hosted Exchange account which required me to set a password for my iPhone. Not too long after that, I switched hosts, and after setting up my iPhone with the new Exchange account I was not required to setup a password for the phone. Must have been something enabled/disabled with the host? Both offered me the ability to remote wipe my device from within the OWA control panel. I wish I could remember who I used that required a password on setup (not that it would make a difference), I used themessagecenter most recently (which didn't require a password).
