Getting email on my Android

Getting email on my Android

I am able to set up email on my device, but cannot receive or send until I "activate device administrator". The list of items that can be controlled by "email" is long and scary. If I activate device administrator, will those actions be performed? Is there another way to get around having to activate device administrator?


Thank you!

To disable one specific user to not get the prompt "accept device administrator", we can set a seperate ActiveSync Mailbox Policy to disable DevicePasswordEnabled and apply this to this specific user.
