MDaemon 13.5.x: MDaemon's ActiveSync Server Policy Support

The MDaemon ActiveSync server now supports ActiveSync protocol versions 12.1, 14.0, and 14.1. The changes have allowed us to expose new ActiveSync policy capabilities and make many improvements to overall device mananagement.

The policies screen has been redesigned and now allows specification of many new ActiveSync policy elements. There are numerous new possibilities with this than in older versions. As before, specific devices may elect to ignore your policy requests and we've found this to be somewhat sporadic depending on the device used and the version of the Operating System running on the device. 

To generate a new ActiveSync policy

  1. Select Setup
  2. Select Mobile Device Management
  3. Select Policies within the ActiveSync section
  4. Select New policy
  5. Enter a policy name within the Policy name field
  6. Enter a policy description within the Policy description field
  7. Select the custom Policy Options that will be enforced
  8. Select OK

To apply a policy to a specific user

  1. Select Accounts
  2. Select Edit Account
  3. Select the account the policy is being applied to
  4. Select OK
  5. Select ActiveSync Devices
  6. In the Device policy: drop down, select the policy that will be enforced for this user
  7. Select OK

To apply a policy to a domain

  1. Select Setup
  2. Select Mobile Device Management
  3. Select Domains within the ActiveSync section
  4. Select the domain the policy will be applied to
  5. Select the policy that will be enforced for the domain
    • If you wish to apply the selected policy to all ActiveSync devices that are already associated with the domain, select Apply selected policy to all current devices. If you only wish to apply this policy to new devices under this domain, skip this step.
  6. Select OK
