    I'm installing Exchange on new Samsung Galaxy S5. So far, so good: my cell is talking to the server. We're now asked to give permission for email to take on Administrative rights on the cell, including erase all data, deny camera, set pw rules, lock screen, set storage encryption, set SD card encryption, disable POP and IMAP emails, disable internet, disable Bluetooth, and many others. Is this normal, or am I harboring some malware?

    Normal for most Exchange accounts. It's a security imposition your Company applies to these accounts so that using them in your mobile device will not incur in a serious security breach. Most of the time, it will require you to have a secure lockscreen if you want to use this e-mail account in your phone (and disable the option to have a non-secure lockscreen or no lockscreen at all) . If you decline, it will just not 'install'.
