Angry Make TP2 look like iOS device to exchange

All,
I work in an iPhone giddy environment who stated an iPhone email program. I am the black sheep running Windows - the other day I recieved the following email from our corporate admins...

Weekly reports of our iPhone infrastructure show you are connecting with a non iOS device. This type of usage is not permitted at this time. A condition of acceptance into the iPhone Pilot is the agreement that the user is required to use an iOS device (iPhone, iPad, Touch). These are the only devices that we tested and have done a security review for. I must ask that you please remove the connection from your device to the email infrastructure at this time.

Now from what I can tell, the communications to exchange are to an Exchange Outlook Web Access Server, over SSL, my only guess is they are using the User-Agent string...but not sure really, anyone have any suggestions / thoughts (other than a. Get and iPhone [NEVER], b. Reason with them)

Thanks in advance
Phil

I don't think that the user agent string is relayed via an Exchange connection. Is it possible that they detected your TP2 via "device name?"

Best bet is to talk to your IT dept about the issue, maybe even HR to pay for an iphone on your behalf (if your job requires an iphone and nothing else).

Re: Make TP2 look like iOS device to exchange

Checking with our Exchange guys right now. Initial question indicates that they run a PowerShell command to get that info. Once I find out what they query on I'll let you know.

*EDIT*
Looks like we at least are polling for Deviceuseragent and Devicetype. I don't know exactly what those correspond to 'inside' the TP2 but if you wanna freak them out boot up XDAndroid and connect. I don't know how to 'fake' those on the TP2...anyone else?

One other thing you might be able to do while tweaking is to hit the webmail page for your Exchange environment >options>mobile devices and see if your changes show up. If so, you are on the right track...Just a thought.

Thanks for the feedback, going to poke around, user agent I can handle but device type could be backed-in.

thanks for thinking about this one

Tell them to suck it and deal with it!
lol
WinMo is probably more secure anyway. There's probably a lot more people trying to hack into iOS devices anyway.

I'm no iPhone fanboy, but I'm sure that many people will agree that "Microsoft" and "secure" do not belong together.

Hell, Halo:Reach, their biggest game release this year was leaked almost a month before the release date because some amateur hacked into an MS server that hosted the game for reviewers.

At any rate, WM has settings to change your device name which MAY be locked on iPhones to one specific string or alias. Maybe replicating that string could help you out.
