Microsoft Exchange permissions
I have an Exchange account setup on my android phone for work, while doing this I had to allow some permissions. But when I decided to check again. I'm a little concerned about the amount of things it requested to do wit my phone, such as make itself an admin, disable camera, set and remove lockscreen patterns/passwords, etc, disable my phone, etc. I would give a full list if I could remember. I'm just wondering if this is normal for an exchange account or is something fishy going on. Thanks.

    But why does it need to set itself as an administrator on my device?
    The permissions are listed below:
    • Erase all data
    • Set password rules
    • Monitor screen-unlock attempts
    • Lock the screen
    • set lock-screen password attempts
    • set storage encryption
    • Disable cameras
    • disable features in keyguard
    • set SD Card encryption
    • password recovery
    • Disable POP and IMAP emails
    • disable SD Card
    • disable Wi-Fi
    • Disable SMS/MMS messaging
    • Disable Internet
    • disable Internet sharing
    • disable bluetooth
    • disable desktop sync
    • disable IrDA
    • disable 3rd party applications
    • disable native applications
    • disable unknown applications
    • prevent the installation of unknown applications.
    should an exchange Active-sync Account require all of these from my mobile phone? I'm very skeptical about this, especially its primary use is for sending and receiving emails.
