How do I deploy the Exchange ActiveSync settings to Android devices using Sophos Mobile Control (SMC) ?

Known to apply to the following Sophos product(s) and version(s)

Sophos Mobile Control

Operating systems
Android 2.2 or higher

What To Do

With Sophos Mobile Control it is currently not possible to deploy Exchange ActiveSync information to every Android device.

Several Samsung devices support the SAFE API which is supported as of Sophos Mobile Control 3.0. For these devices you can create a profile containing all Exchange ActiveSync information and deploy it to them. The user just has to enter the password for his mail account.

On Android devices from other vendors the Exchange ActiveSync account must be setup manually.
