  2. If the Add/ Modify account restriction has been applied to the device, the user will be prompted to enter the password only once. If the user enters the wrong password, the profile has to be redistributed to prompt for password.

Troubleshooting tips

NOTE:Ensure that the maximum limit on the number of devices per mailbox is not breached while pushing Exchange Activesync profile.

I've changed passcode for the Exchange accounts of all users. But they're still able to access it as they've logged in previously. How do I ensure the user logs in with the new passcode?
