Hello ,

This is not a new topic and has been discussed for quite some time.

Exchange ActiveSync mailbox policies let you apply a common set of policy or security settings to a user or group of users. The following table summarizes the settings you can specify using Exchange ActiveSync mailbox policies.

Everything is ver well detailed in :

However, I wanted to make sure the following part would be seen :)

If you have Windows Phone 7 mobile phones in your organization, these phones will experience synchronization problems if certain Exchange ActiveSync mailbox policy properties are configured. To allow Windows Phone 7 mobile phones to synchronize with an Exchange mailbox, either set the AllowNonProvisionableDevices property to "TRUE" or only configure the following Exchange ActiveSync mailbox policy properties:

 - PasswordRequired
 
 - MinPasswordLength
 
 - IdleTimeoutFrequencyValue
 
 - DeviceWipeThreshold
 
 - AllowSimplePassword
 
 - PasswordExpiration
 
 - PasswordHistory
 
 - DisableRemovableStorage
 
 - DisableIrDA
 
 - DisableDesktopSync
 
 - BlockRemoteDesktop
 
 - BlockInternetSharing

In the referred page you will be able to observe other links to very useful articles such as :
