Windows Intune - Automatic management of mobile devices


  • When using Intune with ActiveSync, is the default behavior such that when users register their mobile device through ActiveSync that they also receive Intune policies as well?  I'm helping a company that would like to enforce Intune policies on or around the same time as when a user enrolls through ActiveSync.

  • Hi,

    When you establish a connection to your exchange server Windows Intune will write any applicable policies into your Exchange environment, sitting side by side with any Exchange policies you have already configured.  The most strict policy will be applied.   Best practice is to create the mobile polices you want to enforce first in Windows Intune and apply to all users or your user group, then establish the exchange connection with our connector.  Enrolled devices will receive the policy immediately upon enrolling their devices in EAS.

    Hope that help.
