Hi,
My company only allows iphone, wm6 and blackberry to connect to the ActiveSync. They recently blocked all other "unauthorized" cleints.

Is there a way to spoof the client id, making the exchange server think I am connecting from an iPhone?

Maybe somewhere in the build.prop or similar ?

I use touchdown and I think that you can be able to spoof the agent string right here.




Here is a picture of what it looks like from the exchange server side (in case you care)

Yeah, using touchdown if you change the string to iphone it should work. I was trying to get mine setup yesterday, but it wasnt working. Put iphone in there and it worked instantly.

I have the same problem. Can the device type string be modified in the stock mail app? If not, what is the correct entry for Windows Mobile 6.1 or 6.5?

It probably has more to do with security than phone type...As android 2.1 does not allow complex passwords and remote wipe it is not allowed to sync.

Bumping this as I have the same issue. I would prefer to modify the existing email.apk instead of using touchdown. Anyone have any ideas?

Does anyone know what the entry is for Windows Mobile 6.1 or 6.5? Those are the only two allowable without the required use of a different (inferior) product at my company.

DeviceID, DeviceType, User-Agent
Any new developments in this area?

As I am not an Exchange admin at my company, I have no access to the Exchange or TMG firewall logs, but Outlook Web Access reveals information about the mobile devices I have used in the past (OWA > Options > Mobile Devices)

Each "device" is known by three separate descriptors:
* DeviceID: I have read this: For Symbian devices it's the IMEI number that is used, for iPhones it's the serial number, for Windows Phone it's a GUID and for Android devices it's usually a hash of the IMEI.
* DeviceType: iPhone, htcbravo, Android, iPad, HTC_HD2 T8585, HTC Touch Pro1 T7373, Kaiser, HTC Touch HD T8282, (and for those querying about Windows Mobile: ) PocketPC/PPC/SmartPhone/variation of this, ... (please complete!)
* Web-Agent: Android-EAS/0.1, Apple-iPad1C1/803.148, Apple-iPhone3C1/803.148... (please complete!)

Touchdown allows you to change DeviceType only.
1) Does anyone know of any other alternatives to change the DeviceType, DeviceID or Web-Agent?
2) Does anyone have any idea about how to change the stock app/OS's DeviceID, DeviceType and/or Web-Agent?

bump on this as well, i would like to use the stock email.apk but spoof it to thinking window device....as this would format viewing emails a little better for me

this would be away for us non-Touchdown users how prefer the stock email.apk to get what we would like

any chance someone could decompile the stock email.apk and look for any strings to change

I would also like the built in email.apk to be used. I don't HATE Touchdown, but I don't love it either. The built in e-mail program is simple and I just like it better. My issue is that my company only allows android to have full access with Touchdown. I can get my e-mail with the built in mail.apk program, but I cannot open attachments or forward messages. Upon further research it has to do with the device encryption exchange setting being enforced. Apparently only Touchdown truly supports this. I have tried a few hacked email.apks from a few of the threads here that fake these protocols and it still does not work for me.

My guess is that my company is only allowing attachments to be downloaded with "User Agent: TouchDown(MSRPC)/6.4.0002". Sorry for the long message. What I would like to know is where is the Useragent string stored? Can it be changed? I would change it to Touchdown or whatver Iphone shows up as.

Thanks!
