Here is the completed Q&A Log from Part 18 (Mobility) of the 24 Part Exchange 2007 Webcast series.  Remember that some of the new security features in Exchange 2007 for Mobile devices does require Windows Mobile 6 on the device.  This includes things such as Password Recovery and Encryption enforcement (plus a few more).  Let me know if you have any other questions.
