This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell to create a mailbox policy. A mailbox policy holds a group of settings for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync. These settings include password, encryption, and attachment settings.
When you install the Client Access server role on a computer that is running Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, no mailbox policies exist. You can create multiple mailbox policies and assign users to these policies.
Before You Begin
To perform this procedure, the account you use must be delegated the Exchange Recipient Administrator role.
For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.
To use the Exchange Management Console to create an Exchange ActiveSync mailbox policy
In the console tree, expand the Organization Configuration node, and then click Client Access.
In the action pane, click New ActiveSync mailbox policy.
On the New ActiveSync Mailbox Policy wizard page, enter a name in the Mailbox policy name box.
Select one or more of the optional check boxes.
Click New to finish creating your mailbox policy.
Click Finish to close the New ActiveSync Mailbox Policy Wizard.
To use the Exchange Management Shell to create an Exchange ActiveSync mailbox policy

New-ActiveSyncMaiboxPolicy -Name PolicyName -DevicePasswordEnabled:$false -AlphanumericDevicePasswordRequired:$false -MaxInactivityTimeDeviceLock:'unlimited' -MinDevicePasswordLength:$null -PasswordReciveryEnabled:$false -DeviceEncryptionEnabled:$false -AttachmentsEnabled:$true
