making a Mac think that it's emailing from an iOS device?

Hi guys, not sure if this is possible or not.

I have an email account that only works from iOS devices. It is designed to be this way by the small business I work for. Is it possible to spoof Mac Mail or another email client think that it is an iOS device? I've done some googling and seen about lots of alternative email clients, but pretty sure they wouldn't be able to do this. I know it's a bit of random request but it would really benefit me to have access to my emails with a proper keyboard and full size screen!

(of course I appreciate there is the Apple TV/mirroring and seperate bluetooth keyboard option)...

Put "Sent from my iPhone" at the end of your message...

But seriously, I'm not sure there is a way to do this. At least that I know of.

Without knowing how they locked it into only being accessible by an iOS device, it's hard to say how to spoof it to allow a desktop client to access it. Any more information on what they did?

You could do it with a custom email app, but not with a standard client. You need to forge the headers.

Sounds like they may have enabled Activesync but disabled IMAP. Is that the case?
