First off, talk to your Exchange administrators. See if they deliberately are setting the mobile device security settings so tightly. I would have a discussion with them to see if they can loosen up the security settings. If you only want email you could try K-9 from the app store. It uses IMAP to get the mail from the server so your exchange server will ...

You don't mention which phone or Android version you're using. On my Motorola Droid (Android 2.2) the built-in E-mail application allows me to connect to my employers Exchange server. When I created the account, I had three options for connecting: POP3, IMAP, and Exchange. There are other e-mail clients out there that may also connect to Exchange.

A co-worker said he found a work-around with this app: Moxier Mail. I'm using the trial right now and I like it a lot. I really like that it lets me separate my work from the rest of my tablet. It also doesn't fall under the security requirements. It does require a pin for the app itself and there are useful widgets. All-in-all it seems even better than the ...

If you buy the TouchDown app (30 day free trial available), the lock code will not be on the phone, but on the app. That's ever so much better.

Settings - Account and Sync - <your exchange account>' - Account settings - (scroll down) Incoming settings' - password field. On my Samsung Galaxy S - running Froyo 2.2.1

No, they are not. For as long as you have the account registered in your email app, the policies are applied, however, if you remove the email account then the policies will no-longer be enforced. The app is given a "device administrator" status (you can see any apps which have this in "Security" in your settings), and you can revoke that at any time. ...

I have the same issue, N7 with 4.2 with an Exchange Corporate Account that forces a password/pin. You are correct that it has to do with corporate account. I removed my corporate account and was able to add widgets, even with the security still set to "password to unlock". I also changed to Pin and Slide to unlock and all of them worked as well. I then ...

I had the same issue with a company I'm working with now. I'm a consultant, and my current client has given me a corporate email address, which I synched to my phone so I'm able to view and respond to messages when I'm not at the client site. They have a script that runs when your contract expires to send the remote wipe command. However, I've been ...

Here it is the modified Email.apk. (This is for Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.1 Only! ) This tool bypasses security restrictions (the client claims it will enforce the hard reset policies but it won't in fact). Please use it with extreme caution. There is a specific reason why an administrator configures such a policy, and I would recommend it to everyone. If ...

Sometimes misbehaving apps need to have their data cleared out and a fresh start. Go to Menu -> Settings -> Manage Applications -> Email (or whatever app you are using.) Click on "Clear Data." Try setting up the profile again. If that doesn't work, you may have memory issues as already indicated. Good luck.

You could try K9 Mail. I use it for non-Exchange accounts and it works great, so I know it's a great email app in general. I believe it has the ability to connect to Exchange servers, too, so...there you go!

FOR ROOTED PHONES ONLY Well I've had the same problem as the original poster ever since I updated it to Froyo. My exchange account I previously had on the phone was using a remote administrator certificate that I could not remove. Yesturday I worked out a simple solution using R/W access to the /system/app folder. Using a free root file explorer named ...

I used TouchDown (30-day trial, $19.99) before Android had built in Exchange and was very happy with it. I'm now using the native client without many problems (I'm not very demanding of it), but I've heard many people mention that it is still worth buying over the native client because of the more advanced feature set. With the 30-day trial, no reason not to ...

As with most Exchange ActiveSync clients Android implements a sub-set of features from various versions of ActiveSync. According to the Android 4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) Platform Highlights, the Email client supports EAS v14 (scroll down to the "Improved email" section), in a comparison with Gingerbread (Android 2.3.x) though you also need to take into ...

K-9 Mail supports Exchange 2003/2007 via WebDAV. No support for Exchange 2010, unfortunately, since Microsoft removed WebDAV support in the newest version. See the official wiki page for configuration instructions.

No. You can only do what you describe on Samsung devices with their "KNOX" feature. This uses special security hardware to provide separate, isolated environments on your phone, so there's no way that information can leak from the "business" environment to the "personal" environment. It's present on their high-end phones since the Galaxy S3, and you can ...

There is an altered version of the 2.2 email app here that disables the security features. You need root to replace the app with this. Originally posted as a comment by hagope, posting as a CW answer so this question can be shown as "answered" :)

I just upgraded as well and had the same thing happen to me. However, in my case I am still connected to an exchange server. I know our IT guys are very open with not locking down our phones with stuff like this and I have had Windows Mobile phones connected to the same exchange server with no need for a pin number. Open Phone Settings Open Location and ...

From Android 2.0 Exchange support was added and this included multiple exchange accounts. http://developer.android.com/sdk/android-2.0-highlights.html The highlights there mention "Handset manufacturers can choose whether to include Exchange support in their devices." But all the the higher end devises (Galaxy S, Nexus One, HTC Desire etc) will most ...

In order to connect your phone to an Exchange account follow these steps: From the home screen hit the menu button and choose "Settings". Choose "Accounts & sync". Click the "Add account" button on the bottom. Choose "Corporate". Enter the full E-mail address and Password of the Exchange account you're trying to link, then click "Next". This step may ...

You may want just transfer your Exchange contacts to GMail. There are quite good duplicate/merging tools in GMail Contacts. Use More actions and Find and merge duplicates. There are automatic as well as manual merging modes. You can import CSV formatted contacts into GMail from its More actions and Import menu.

When you create a new event, you should be able to select which calendar to add the event to. If you select an Exchange-based calendar, the event will be synced to the server. By default the events are created in the phone's local calendar.

Well I finally figured this out, after racking up 800MB of upload and 3.5MB of download with my Exchange Email over 2 days... I had tried to send someone an 8MB PDF and it never sent successfully... so it tried again, and again, and again, and again. The email was stuck in my outbox and couldn't be deleted. I'd get "server error" messages (DERP!). The ...

Unfortunately the native Android Exchange Client doesn't support automatic sync of sub-folders, as you have seen you can go in to the folder and sync it manually but that isn't much use. This hasn't been improved much in Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The sub folders now sync but it doesn't notify you of new messages in them which isn't really any better. ...

Not sure if you've made any headway on this. I was searching for answers for this today and got it figured out. I've got a Galaxy S4, running 4.2.2 I had to open the native email app. Menu > Settings > Exchange Account with sub folders > More Settings > Folder Sync Settings. From there I think it should be self explanatory. Not sure what ...

I was just suffering from the same issue with an Exchange 2010 server. The problem was server-side not client-side. Upon investigating the event log for the Exchange role, I noticed the following error entry: Exchange ActiveSync verfügt nicht über ausreichende Berechtigungen zum Erstellen des Containers "CN=Oliver Salzburg,OU=..." unter dem Active ...

There are many ways to sync your Exchange contacts to Gmail. The easiest way is to do this on your computer. This involves exporting your contacts from Outlook into a CSV file, and then importing that file on https://mail.google.com site. Export your Outlook contacts to a CSV (Comma Separated Value) file. Steps to do this vary for different Outlook ...

Your "local and private" Android calendar is your Google calendar. When you've created that personal event it defaulted to your Exchange calendar. In order to avoid this is the future make sure that you create events in the calendar you want to. Usually it defaults to the last calendar you've created an event in.

After a while trying, I try to check the 'Accept all certification in step 7, and it works.

I don't know about older versions of Android, but from my 2.1 version it is pretty straight-forward. From the Home screen go to Settings and tap "Wireless and Networks." Then "VPN Settings" and Add VPN and follow the prompts from there.
