These are not prerequisites for installation per se but, like the Spam filtering section, can help prevent problems post-installation (such as the Red X when sending).

Assumes that the hotfix in KB926666 has been installed on the Exchange mailbox servers, which I think is a pretty sound assumption.


Give the BES Service Account Send As permissions on all the Active Directory Users who are going to have BB accounts. Do this with ADUC with the Advanced Features checked, so you can see the Security tab.

Remove Active Directory Users who are going to have BB accounts from any Active Directory Groups that nest back into the BUILTIN Administrators, Account Operators, Server Operators, Print Operators and Backup Operators groups. Create them non-mail-enabled accounts and restore the BUILTIN group memberships to the new accounts. Have them log into ONLY the new accounts when they need to run as administrators and use the original accounts for general logon, email etc.
