    Ok, so I've been trying to solve this issue since starting with my first Android phone, the Hero...

    I work for a large enterprise corporation & our security policies are quite strict. I have used Blackberries, Palm Pre, WinMo all successfully with my employer, but Android just does not work! Ok, yes, I've been using TouchDown & it kind of works, but only with Exchange 2003 support running, ActiveSync will not connect.

    I know our policies require simple PIN & remote device wipe, so is that what is blocking me from using the built in client? I read somewhere that someone has some sort of patch they applied that tricks Exchange into thinking it is a different type of device trying for ActiveSync & bypasses the simple PIN & remote wipe. Has anyone heard of anything like this?

    Any guidance would be so very appreciated! Thank you!

    I'm afraid I can't help with what is wrong, but I can verify that the ActiveSync does support remote wipe and mandatory pins (as well as encryption). I needed all of that to connect with the HP corporate server, and the phone's client warned me that those features were enabled order to connect.

    We're just as strict (though we do have a choice between PIN/PWD - no pattern)... Anywho, it's all good for me ... Connect w/o issue ... I will point out that your "SSL connection" checkbox should probably be checked. And have also tested my remote wipe ability and it was quite successful.
    I've had the EVO since the start so there have been no connectivity issues with any of the software revisions. Did try assisting a collegue in Singapore who was having issues getting connected though. He was never able to get stock apps to work correctly and ended up using Touchdown w/o issue.
