Exchange 2010 on SBS 2011 ActiveSync Policy


  • We have an SBS 2011 server running Exchange 2010 and wanted to know if its possible to create an ActiveSync policy in Exchange that would prevent users from syncing Mail but still be able to sync Calendar, Contacts, etc.? I know on the phone the user needs to select what they want to sync when setting up an Exchange account; we want to force users to use a secure mail program to secure incoming and outgoing emails from their mobile phones, but still be able to access the GAL and calendar.  Thanks.

  • Hi,

    As far as I know, set it on the client side could be the only way. However, in Exchange ActiveSync mailbox policy | Sync settings, you could set the “include past e-mail items” to “one day”. The value cannot be set to “0” in PowerShell neither.

    Hope it helps.

    Best Regards,
