Exchange ActiveSync

Exchange ActiveSync lets users access corporate data stored in the Exchange server or any other server that is EAS compliant. Users can access information such as e-mails, contacts, calendar, and tasks even when they are offline. EAS can be configured to use SSL encryption to establish secure communication between the EAS host and the managed devices. Also, MDM lets you store and view e-mail attachments using the ManageEngine MDM app. You can configure Exchange ActiveSync for Non-Samsung devices running 5.0 or later versions, provisioned as Profile Owner/Device Owner and for all Samsung devices.

Learn more about configuring Exchange ActiveSync for Non-Samsung devices here.

The domain name, username, user principal name and host name used for configuring Exchange ActiveSync, are case-sensitive.
Only devices running Android 5.0 or above can be provisioned as Profile Owner or Device Owner.
