Apply mobile device connection rules

Once you've configured a Mobility Manager connection to a Microsoft Exchange 2010 server or Office 365, you can then configure ActiveSync connection rules. 

There are three connection rules you can apply:

Allow all mobile devices to connect: Any user can access an Exchange mailbox from a mobile device.

Do not allow mobile devices to connect: Mobile devices can't access an Exchange mailbox. You can refine this rule by creating exceptions for certain mobile device types (iPad devices, for example).

Allow only managed devices to connect: Mobile devices that are enrolled in Mobility Manager can access an Exchange mailbox. You can refine this rule by creating exceptions for certain mobile device types (iOS devices, for example).

The default device list already defines exceptions for some common device types. If you don't see the device type you want to manage in the list, you can add new device types.

Connection rules take effect when you click OK or Apply in the configuration dialog. There is no additional deployment required.

To apply connection rules

1.Click Configure > Device discovery.

2.In the navigation tree, click Exchange ActiveSync and then click the Exchange 2010 or Office 365 link.

3.Make sure the Exchange manages my connection policy checkbox is not enabled.

4.If necessary, add device types to the list so you can make an exception for them.

5.Enable the checkbox next to each device type you want to allow to connect.

6.Click OK.
