    well, that's completely wrong. i am not looking for the "how" to break it, but rather the why. if my phone was rooted, would that mean that the email snyc is not secure?

    why would my company not allow me to root my phone? what kind of new security risks exist that are not there if it was not?

    please be kind and post and stop blocking my attempt to learn the "why" Thank you

    Anyone able to comment on my original post?

    if i were to root my phone, would...

    A) my company somehow be able to find this out?

    B) if yes to A, how would they be able to determine this if they only interact with emails?

    C) if phone was rooted and my emails were still sync'd, how might that decrease the security of the phone and or mail snyc all together??

    please note, i am NOT asking you HOW to do anything....(don

    Yes. If they are running exchange 2010 then yes. I'm not an expert but is has something to do with how encryption is handled. HTC devices with 2.3.3 return a value that state encryption not supported.


    My company is also installing a software agent that will look for root access and automatically prevent authentication to the exchange server regardless of OS version or device.
