The Client Access server role is one of the new server roles for Microsoft Exchange Server 2007. You can use the Client Access node in Organization Configuration to maintain Exchange ActiveSync mailbox policies.

Exchange ActiveSync Policies

An Exchange ActiveSync mailbox policy is a group of settings that specify how a user or users can use their mobile device to connect to the Exchange server. There are a variety of settings that can be managed within the Exchange Management Console. To change settings for a specific Exchange ActiveSync mailbox policy, right-click the mailbox policy name, and then click Properties. The Properties window has tabs for viewing and updating the following information:


Use this tab to specify whether devices that cannot be provisioned are automatically allowed and whether attachments can be downloaded to devices.

  • Whether passwords must be alphanumeric

  • Whether recovery is enabled

  • Whether encryption is required on devices

  • The number of failed password attempts allowed

  • Minimum password length

  • How long the device can go without user input before the password must be re-entered
