Just to be clear, Outlook can be ' configured' by AppConfig, but email is not ' managed' by airwatch while using outlook. The only thing you can do is manage the app itself, i.e. remove the app etc. The rest of the solutions are truly managed containers using airwatch. Android really also depends on the hardware vendor, Samsung, etc. By default you can always deploy email to the GMAIL app as well if you can't decide on any other solution.
Dany we original used GMail and Google Calendar but later switched to Boxer before fulling rolling it out to all our users. Either option works we just found our power users prefer the Boxer approach as its better for GAL lookup and more convenient to have everything built into One app. We looked at the Outlook app but since we go thru a SEG V2 and have the ' Managed Device' compliance policy enabled Outlook was a no go as it shows up as an Unmanaged app and I really didn't want to manually review and approve 3500 devices 🙂
Hey Dany, My company uses Gmail as our calendar and email app for Android users. We don't have many users using Android, me being one of them, and most were accustomed to the Gmail app anyways so it was an easy solution. I setup profiles for both Gmail and Boxer in case someone wanted to switch to Boxer or as a company we switch later. But made the Boxer app an optional install for the end-user. I agree with Boe K. the unmananged/managed was a nightmare having to whitelist devices when using SEG V2 and ' Managed Device' compliance policy.
Yes it was the same for us when we tried using the Outlook app and Native app after the 1903 release. Since the end of support for the Play store integration we switched to Gmail and Boxer profiles and it's BAU 🙂
