  1. Indeed endless possibilities. :-)

    One (minor) comment though: what is missing is some proper version management of the Windows Phone 8.1 MDM protocol documentation. Just a timestamp on the cover page is imho not sufficient. Over time as this doc further evolves this will become confusing.

  2. Hi,
    this is very interesting, I just read your guest blog Pieter Wiglevens TechNet blog and it works perfectly. According to this documentention it should be possible to add an ActiveSync account to a phone using OMA URI, right?. This would be really usefull because Intune cloud only can only create mail profiles that connect you own Mailbox, not a shared Mailbox/Group account.
