So I got a new phone everything works fine, but to set up My Go Daddy Business Email on My new Smart Phone I have to turn over control of said smart phone to the email Server. If Allowed the Server would be able to:

Erase All Data (Perform a factory reset without any warning)
Set Password Rules (Control Length and Characters allowed in a password)
Monitor Screen unlock attempts (Monitor and lock or erase phone if too many attempts are made)
Lock the Screen (Allow how and when the screen is locked)
Set Lock Screen password expiration (Decide when You have to reset your password)
Set Storage Encryption
Disable Cameras (Prevent use of device cameras)
Disable Features in Key Guard.

Seriously I guess I wont have my business email available at all times as I cant allow some random server those abilities on My phone.

FYI I have 5 email accounts only the Go Daddy server tries to take control of my phone.

Has anyone actually allowed said control?

Can't you configure it through your phones email app, instead of godaddys phone app?

...you should be able to, putting your login name and password. Maybe need to enable in godaddy email settings when logged on via the internet login.

Use the phone email app or third party.

Get the POP3 addresses from your email and plug them in.

Make sure it's set to ping your phone to sync emails when you receive one.

That is not your phones fault. That is the website/program.

Actually there is no option, I am using the Phones email apps (yes tried in gmail app and email app on Android) and it redirects Me to a security page which then pops up the authorization for the above listed permissions (which I would upload a screen shot but blocking ATS's ad's denies Me the right to upload anything) it appears to be a server requirement.

Godaddy is a sketchy company. I worked in a datacenter here on the east coast. We had full server floors used for a whole range of dif companies. But when it came to GoDaddy, they had private rackrooms, and you also had to have a clearance to access them.
