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.

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 ...

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. ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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.

Open up My Accounts application from application tray. Select the Corporate Sync account you wish to modify. Your Corporate exchange account settings will be displayed Select Remove account to remove this Corporate Exchange account from the handset. Seen here Troubleshooting page in case of further problems.

i've found two different strategies work for this root the phone and install cyanogenmod. this has a setting under Tablet Enhancements that allows you to disable the lock screen, this negating the PIN code entry install an email app from the market that is compatible with exchange, such as Moxier Mail. this still respects the security/PIN code stuff for ...

I too feel the same way that a remote wipe of the whole phone is way too much power to be handed over, especially in the case of our personal phones. Unfortunately I don't think there is anything you can do about the built-in Email app. I have a Nexus S, and I decided to try TouchDown because it does not allow a remote Exchange administrator to wipe the ...

Yes, at least on 2.1+. I do have the Samung TouchWiz UI though, and the email app is subtly different. I would expect it to be the same in this regard however. Note that the Email app is terrible, though, and may not otherwise behave how you want. I recommend a third-party app or forwarding your email to Gmail.

It looks like there is an issue with the Exchange Server certificates and Froyo. I have found a few others with the same issue: Exchange 2007 doesn't work after ota 2.2 update Android 2.2, FRF91 now Active-sync is unable to connect to server, all was fine on Android 2.1 Those links have several workarounds that might solve your problem as long as you can ...

The first thing I'd suspect is that a database used by the Email app is corrupted. To fix this, you need to go to Settings -> Applications -> Manage applications, find the Email app, and clear the data for it. (If you see anything like "Email Storage" be sure to clear the data for that as well). Then re-add your account and see if that helps. If ...

By default email will be stored in the phone's internal memory, not on the SD card. (Though you can 'move' the app to SD storage, so it is possible that the SD card gets used). As others have said, once your mail is on the SD card, there is no protection as the SD card is removable (since the data is unencrypted). For mail that is stored in the phone's ...

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 ...

This isn't very elegant... Open the Android Contacts app Menu --> Display options --> Choose contacts to display Under each account, expand the list, make a note somewhere of what was checked, and then uncheck everything Tap Done. You should now be left with phone-only contacts Menu --> Import/Export --> Share visible contacts You will see some ...
