Exchange settings

To specify the settings for the ActiveSync server that devices use, go to Policies & Configs > Configurations, then select Add New > Exchange. The ActiveSync server can be a Microsoft Exchange server, an IBM® Lotus® Notes Traveler server, Microsoft Office 365, or another server.

For macOS 10.10 Yosemite:

Contacts, Email, Notes, Reminders, and Calendar are synchronized. ActiveSync is not supported.

For iOS:

  • If an Exchange profile already exists on the device, then attempts to distribute new ActiveSync settings using Ivanti Endpoint Manager Mobile will fail.

For iOS and macOS:

  • iOS/macOS can take advantage of the optional Save User Password feature under Settings > Preferences to facilitate Exchange configuration.

Note that AppConnect-enabled Email+ for iOS and Email+ for Android do not use an Exchange setting. Instead, you configure the email clients using an AppConnect app configuration.

The following table describes the Exchange settings you can specify.

Description

Enter additional text that clarifies the purpose of this group of Exchange settings.

 

Server Address

Enter the address of the ActiveSync email server.

If you are using Standalone Sentry, do the following:

Enter the Standalone Sentry’s address.

If you are using Lotus Domino server 8.5.3.1 Upgrade Pack 1 for your ActiveSync server, set the server address to <Standalone Sentry’s fully qualified domain name>/traveler.

If you are using a Lotus Domino server earlier than 8.5.3.1 Upgrade Pack 1, set the address to <Standalone Sentry fully qualified domain name>/servlet/traveler.

If you are using load balancers, contact Ivanti. Professional Services.

When using Integrated Sentry, set the server address to Microsoft Exchange Server’s address.

When using Sentry, you can do preliminary verification of your Exchange configuration choices for the ActiveSync User Name, ActiveSync User Email, and ActiveSync Password fields. To do so, first set the server address to the ActiveSync server. After you have verified that users can access their email using this Exchange configuration, change the server address to the appropriate Sentry address.

For more information about configuring Sentry, see the Ivanti Standalone Sentry Guide for EPMM.

 

Use SSL

Select to use secure connections.

 

Use alternate device handling

Replaces the Use Standalone Sentry option. Use this option only under the direction of Ivanti Technical Support.

 

Domain

Specify the domain configured for the server.

 

Google Apps Password

This check box only appears if you have configured a Google account with Ivanti EPMM.

When linking to Google Apps, select this option to use the Google Apps password to log in to the Google account you have configured to work with Ivanti EPMM. This password allows device users to access their Email, Contacts, and Calendar data on their managed devices.

When selected, Ivanti EPMM grays out the ActiveSync User Name and ActiveSync User Password.

This check box only appears if you have configured a Google account with Ivanti EPMM, as described in Synchronizing Google account data.

 

ActiveSync User Name

Specify the variable for the user name to be used with this Exchange configuration. You can specify any or all of the following variables $EMAIL$, $USERID$, $PASSWORD$. $MANAGED_APPLE_ID$ can be used for Shared iPad devices and User Enrolled devices only.

You can also specify custom formats, such as $USERID$_US. Custom attribute variable substitutions are supported.

Typically, you use $USERID$ if your ActiveSync server is a Microsoft Exchange Server, and you use $EMAIL$ if your ActiveSync server is an IBM Lotus Notes Traveler server. You cannot use $NULL$ for this field.

 

ActiveSync User Email

Specify the variable for the email address to be used with this Exchange configuration. You can specify any or all of the following variables $USERID$, $EMAIL$,$SAM_ACCOUNT_NAME$, $USER_CUSTOM1$, $USER_CUSTOM2$, $USER_CUSTOM3$, $USER_CUSTOM4$, $CUSTOM_DEVICE_Attributename$, CUSTOM_USER_Attributename$, or $NULL$.

$MANAGED_APPLE_ID$ can be used for Shared iPad devices and User Enrolled devices only.

You can also specify custom formats, such as $USERID$_US. Custom attribute variable substitutions are supported.

Typically, you use $EMAIL$ in this field; you cannot use $NULL$.

 

ActiveSync User Password

Specify the variable for the password to be used with this Exchange configuration. You can specify any or all of the following variables: $USERID$, $EMAIL$, $PASSWORD$, $USER_CUSTOM1$, $USER_CUSTOM2$, $USER_CUSTOM3$, $USER_CUSTOM4$, $CUSTOM_DEVICE_Attributename$, CUSTOM_USER_Attributename$, or $NULL$. You can also specify custom formats, such as $USERID$_US. Custom attribute variable substitutions are supported.

Enter additional variables or text in the text box adjacent to the Password field. Entries in this text box are kept hidden and will not be visible to any Ivanti EPMM administrator.

All variables and text up to the last valid variable will be visible. Anything after the last valid variable will not be visible. The valid variable may appear in either of the password fields. Valid variables are variables in the drop-down list.

 

Identity Certificate

Select the Certificate Enrollment entry you created for supporting Exchange ActiveSync, if you are implementing certificate-based authentication.

When setting up email for devices with multi-user sign-in, the exchange profile must always use a user-based certificate. The user-based certificate will ensure secure access to email for all users. Using a device-based certificate can result in one user sending or receiving emails for another user. When configuring the user-based certificate, select the Proxy enabled and Store certificate keys on MobileIron Core options. This allows the user certificate and private key to be delivered each time they log in on the shared device.

 

Password is also required

Specify whether to prompt device users for a password when certificate authentication is implemented. The password prompt is turned off by default. Once you specify an Identify Certificate, this option is enabled. Select the option if you want to retain the password prompt.

 

Items to Synchronize

(Android, Windows)

This feature is not supported for iOS macOS .

 

Items to Synchronize (iOS)

Select to specify individual syncing of Outlook items: Email, Calendar, Contacts, Notes, and Reminders. All check boxes are selected by default. If Allow User Override is selected for a specific item, the device user will be able to change the service status on the device.

At least one of the Outlook items settings must be enabled. If you disabled syncing for one of the Outlook items and allowed the device user to override that same item, the device user will still be able to enable the Outlook item. For example, if you disabled Calendar, but had Allow User Override selected, the device user will be able to enable calendar on the iOS device.

 

Past Days of Email to Sync

Specify the maximum amount of email to synchronize each time by selecting an option from the drop-down list.
