    Use a patched exchange.apk that bypasses the security settings of the exchange server.
    There are several different versions on xda available. Another option might be to use nine as a mail client. That one should have an option to bypass security settings.

    It is ok for me to have security and I like that Miui V6 email client. There is only small problem with PIN which cannot be longer than 4 digits

    Same problem here on 4.10.31. Really is this a very big problem? The dev team can't resolved it in two months?

  6. Tell your company to give you a Blackberry to use for work purposes.

    Nope, it must work with that
     
  8. Well your company needs to do something, because you can't change from 4 pin to 8 pin.

    It's a bug man all can be changed..
     
  10. Lol its not a bug, it's an incompatibility. So either you change phone or your company changes pin to 4 digits. Those are the only solutions.

    You have MailWise app on PlayStore which can bypass exchange security requirements.
    I think it is much easier solution then to expect that ROM will be changed just because of you (to be honest for 99.9999% users 4 digits PIN is enough)
    btw. have you tried password instead PIN?

    Same problem here.. Working for a large multinational of 80000 employees. Believe me, they are not going to change their security policy by changing from a 5 digit security code to a 4 digit because MIUI 6 only supports 4 digits

    Thanks, I mentioned this bug already somewhere else, but one more time extra won't harm,also because it is still not solved.
