Question Shutdown:BES Customers not effected?

Please Login to Remove!

I keep seeing all this about the berry shutdown. If your company runs a Berry Enterprise Server, the shutdown won't effect you, will it?

this shutdown only effects the "rim" servers that RIM outsources to the cingurlar's, Verizon, etc. That is how individuals get push mail.

if your company owns a BES server, the BES working with Notes or Exchange is doing all the "push", not RIM's outsources servers.

I can't see RIM trying to push out an automatic update to a private owned BES Server that is behind a firewall that "breaks" it from doing push email. Who knows what else the update might break. The lawsuits for this could be huge if RIM were to "force" some type of upgrade to a BES server and the upgrade kills the companies server.

Am I correct on this?
