An Exchange mailbox is a client app of the Exchange ActiveSync service. The app is intended to help corporate users work with email, calendar, contacts, and tasks. An Exchange mailbox lets you connect a mobile device to a Microsoft Exchange server. For more details about the Exchange ActiveSync service, please visit the Microsoft Technical Support website.

To manage mobile devices by using the Exchange ActiveSync protocol, Exchange Server must be deployed on the Microsoft Exchange server. For more details on installing an Exchange Server, please refer to Kaspersky Security Center Help. No additional configuration is required on mobile devices.

Using an Exchange mailbox, you can remotely configure EAS devices by using group policies and can send the data wipe command. The following operating systems support the Exchange ActiveSync protocol:

  • Windows Mobile
  • Windows CE
  • Windows Phone
  • Android
  • Bada
  • BlackBerry 10
  • iOS
  • Symbian

The set of management settings for an Exchange ActiveSync device depends on the operating system that the mobile device runs. For details on the support features of the Exchange ActiveSync protocol for a specific operating system, please refer to the documentation of the specific operating system.
