Corporate Email configuration (iOS Sophos container policy)

With the Corporate Email configuration you define user settings for your Microsoft Exchange Server. These settings are applied to the Sophos Secure Email app if it is installed in the Sophos container.

Setting/Field Description
Exchange ActiveSync host The address of the Microsoft Exchange Server.
Note: If you use the SMC EAS proxy, enter the URL of the SMC proxy server.
User The user for this account.

If you enter the variable %_USERNAME_%, the server replaces it with the actual user name.

Email address The email address of the account.

If you enter the variable %_EMAILADDRESS_%, the server replaces it with the actual email address.

Domain The domain for this account.
Support contact email The email address that will be used as the "Contact Support" email address.
Use secure text fields The content of input fields is secured. Auto-complete and auto-correction are disabled within the Sophos Secure Email app to prevent sensitive words to be saved in the memory of the device.
Export contacts to device Users are allowed to export the exchange contacts with a phone number to the local device contacts. Sophos Secure Email will keep them synchronized. Only name and telephone number will be exported to enable the user to identify company contacts in an incoming call. Note that even after a remote reset of the Sophos Secure Email app, the information will still be available in the local storage of the device.

  • Event reminders are displayed with time, location and title.

When you deselect the option:

  • Email notifications are disabled.
