You cannot open PDF files directly to Adobe Reader due to Adobe not releasing their API to Intunes SDK

Workaround : 

  • Add Adobe Reader to Protected Files in your MAM policy
  • Install Microsoft Onedrive on the device
  • Download the file \ Attachment ( It will download it to Onedrive secure area ) 
  • Open it with Adobe Reader

Trying to deploy a MAM policy and the Teams app asked to sign into the Intune Portal App which would not let the user.

  1. Uninstall Intune app (Company Policy)
  2. Clear Android Settings | Accounts of all work accounts, including any reference to my personal MS account
  3. When opening Teams, rather than saying “switch accounts”, I just logged in using my personal account (the username for which was pre-filled)
  4. I added the Teams account to the Teams app – prompting the flow of:
    1. Installing the Intune app
    2. Granting device administrator privileges (including giving access to Contacts!)
    3. Getting the message that there is no administrator policy (or some such thing)
    4. Adding a PIN to Teams
  5. Getting back to Teams and signing out of my personal account

This seemed to have worked. I went on to test whether the security worked.

  1. Anything I downloaded to my device I couldn’t open (format incorrect)
  2. I could view stuff in Teams but I couldn’t open it on a native app.

You can disable this Active Sync Device for Downloading emails using the following method:

vmw-logo-airwatchWe had a recent problem setting up a new profile on VMwares Airwatch. When a user tries to reply from a message that has been automatically forwarded through exchange, after deleting the To field with the prepoluated forwarding from address, the user cannot enter in an email address

  E.g.  User A forwards message to User B User B clicks reply and takes User A out of the To field User B cannot populate To field , can type in the To filed but nothing appears.

 We try adding the profile manually and we do not have this problem ,  We are running kitkat 4.4.2 andriod on the device and its happened after  deleting and readding the profile is still had the issue

Turns out “Allow email forwarding” was disabled via the Provider which enabling this fixed

Exchange Active SyncRecently a user was complaining about the formatting of emails and also not being able to forward attachements.

Checking the messages , when opening the email it converted it to Plain Text which stripped all the formatting and briefly showed the message

Security Policy Restricts the Use of HTML Email

Checking through the users settings on the phone didn’t suggest it was an Android setting , and re-adding the email still had the issues

There is actually an Active Sync policy that needs enabling for this to stop showing and attachments sending per : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb123994.aspx which is

Allow HTML-formatted e-mail

This can also be enabled in MDM ( Mobile Device Management ) software such as Mobileiron, AirWatch or Kony
