I did an internet search for "android" + "admin notifier" [which can be found in running services].
This explanation was in line with the others that I found, but seemed the most concise:
Source: forum post here http://www.atrixforums.com/forum/motorola-atrix-general-discussion/5043-admin-notifier.html
"Admin Notifier ties into Exchange accounts. When enterprise Exchange accounts are setup, they supply a device policy to your phone. You can accept the policy and use Exchange or not accept and not use the service... They can control just about everything on the device. Remote wipe, pull GPS information, pull contacts/calendar/email/sms, calendar sync/push, contact sync/push, etc."
Hope this helps.
