To guarantee a secure connection to internal email, calendars, and contacts, AirWatch uses the native email client to access EAS mail from the corporate container on Knox devices.

Once each user has an email address and email user name you can create an EAS profile with the following steps:

  1. Navigate to Devices > Profiles & Resources > Profiles > Add > Add Profile > Android.

  2. Select Container.
  3. Configure the profile's General settings.

    These settings determine how the profile deploys and who receives it. For more information on General settings, see Add General Profile Settings.

  4. Select the Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) payload.
