Synchronising with Microsoft® Exchange ActiveSync®
If your company uses a Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync account, you can access your corporate email messages, calendar appointments and contacts directly on your device. After setup, you can find your information in the Email, Calendar and Contacts applications.
If you have set up a Microsoft® Exchange ActiveSync® (EAS) account on your Xperia™ device, the EAS security settings may limit the lock screen type to only a PIN or password. This occurs when your network administrator specifies a lock screen type for all EAS accounts for enterprise security reasons. Contact the network administrator of your company or organisation to check what network security policies are implemented for mobile devices.
