If we make it mandatory for our users to have a PIN on their WinMo 6 phones, can we later reset this PIN remotely when they inevitably forget it? We're running Exchange 2007, and I want the extra security but not the extra headache of users on the road needing a new device because they can't remember if it's '12345' or '54321'.


Software/Hardware used:
Exchange 2007, ActiveSync

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can <a href=”http://www.msexchange.org/articles_tutorials/exchange-server-2007/mobility-client-access/mobility-client-access/mobile-messaging-exchange-server-2007-part2.html”>enable password recovery on the mobile device.</a> Enabling this option enables password recovery for the mobile device. The users can look up the recovery password in order to unlock their device using Outlook Web Access (OWA) 2007. In addition, you can as the Exchange administrator look up the recovery password via the EMC.
