You can manage Exchange ActiveSync properties for users by using the Exchange Management Shell or the Exchange Management Console.
By default, if the Client Access server role is installed in a Microsoft Exchange organization that is running Exchange Server 2007, Exchange ActiveSync is enabled for all users. You can disable Exchange ActiveSync for a user or group of users and also manage various settings for your Exchange ActiveSync users.
To simplify management of your Exchange ActiveSync users, you can create Exchange ActiveSync mailbox policies. These policies help you apply specific settings to a single user or group of users. Some of the available settings include the following:
Require a password
Require an alphanumeric password
Allow attachments to be downloaded to the device
Allow access to Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services documents
Enable device encryption

Administrative permissions are required to manage the computer that is running Exchange 2007 that has the Client Access server role installed. For more information about the permissions that are required to perform administrative tasks for Exchange ActiveSync, see Required Permissions to Manage Client Access.
