Default BES w/out Exchange

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I'm rather new with BlackBerry Enterprise Server and have a question for all of you savvies!

I have a BES in place with an Exchange server integrated, all under a domain. However, there are some people who have their email accounts on another exchange server (which is not in a domain nor it is fiasable to add it).

Is there a way I could set these folks up in BES, but have them keep their email accounts from the other exchange server? When I attempt to add a user using the MNGR, it looks up the users which exist in the Exchange group; which relates to the Exchange server in the domain.

Hope you can enlighten me here!

IIRC it's one BES per domain minimum..

Is this Exchange 5.5? Exchange 2000 + must be in an Active Directory domain.

Thanks for your responses.

The local box is running Exchange 2003, but the other one is in another facility and I have no way of accessing any of its information. So the question was, could I have people accessing their email at this other Exchange server in another facility through my BES?

Maybe that's a bit clearer than the original one.

No, you cannot. The boundry for BES to Exchange relationships is the Exchange Organization. As this server exists outside of your Exchange Org it cannot share the BES.

It's my understanding that if they have OWA set-up, they could set-up that e-mail as a BIS account on their BlackBerry. Don't quote me on it though, I'm just learning this stuff. Maybe someone can confirm/deny.

Yup you can do this with Exchange 2003 ... you won't get the same experience as being on a BES however.
