    Good morning everybody!

    I have a jailbroken iPhone 4S running 5.0.1. I would like to be able to access my work's exchange server on my phone, but when I add it to the accounts, it makes me use a strong password. I have to have a number and a symbol, and at least 6 or 8 characters. I don't want to have to type us~hk3%j4! or something equally stupid every time I unlock my phone. Is there any way to bypass this requirement, or trick the phone into reporting back to exchange that I have a strong password enabled?

    Try using exchange unlock. It's in cydia and works great.
