You can disable Exchange ActiveSync by stopping the Web services on the Exchange ActiveSync virtual directory. You can configure Exchange ActiveSync to access Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services sites and Windows file shares, view Exchange ActiveSync protocol logs, and configure authentication on your Exchange ActiveSync server.
Managing an Exchange ActiveSync Server
You can perform the following tasks on an Exchange ActiveSync server.

Exchange ActiveSync is enabled when the Client Access server
role is installed in an organization. You can disable
Exchange ActiveSync for a user or a group of users by using
the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell.
If you must disable Exchange ActiveSync across your
organization, you can configure the Exchange ActiveSync
virtual directory to refuse all connections by stopping the Web
services on that virtual directory. For more information about how
to enable and disable Exchange ActiveSync, see the following

circumstances. You can also configure the default behavior for
sites that are not specified in the Allowed List or Block List. For
