Default Exchange ActiveSync PIN

The security settings on my organization exchange server requires me to have a PIN code (4 numbers) in order to unlock the phone.

Since the last update on Z1 (4.4.2), if I try to configure a new exchange account the phone, it asks me for a full password (numbers, letters and symbols) even it not required by the organization.

It only happens on the Z1! I have also an iPhone and another Android with Kitkat 4.4.2 and both requires me only a PIN code in the same situation.

Does anyone else have the same issue? You need to remove and re-configure the account to test it.

Thanks,
Adler

Just one more information, my company uses Exchange 2010.

Anybody can help me to test it?

Thanks,

Strange...

I also have an exchange server running myself. Aswell as a few customer servers running various versions. I don't have any of those problems on my device.

What I can say:

You're not the only one

Could be a problem with the mail app of Sony. Best shot is taking an older mail/exchange (latter is an independent app). If that won't work I don't think there'll be much you can do
