How to create ActiveSync device policies using MDaemon's Policy Editor and apply them to users and/or domains

The MDaemon ActiveSync server supports ActiveSync protocol versions 12.1, 14.0, and 14.1. This allows new ActiveSync policy capabilities and make improvements to device management.

The policy screen has been redesigned and allows specification of many new ActiveSync policy elements.  There are numerous new possibilities with this than in older versions.
