Question BES, Notes, Outlook, Exchange...

Please Login to Remove!

I wasn't quite sure where to post this question, but I figured that other BES Admins might have come across a similar issue.

We currently have the following existing setup:
Server: BES for Domino
Clients: 8830 SmartPhones

We will soon be adding another company to our WAN. The company currently has messages hosted externally (I'm assuming a BlackBerry site) which I believe is synching OTA to their Outlook/BlackBerry's.

Their new setup will be as follows:
- Internal Exchange server (no BES)
- Exchange server will talk to our Domino server via Notes connectors
- Clients: 8703 SmartPhones

I've been informed that the new company is not concerned about BES, since they plan on somehow synching, OTA, via some free Microsoft (Exchange) utility.

Could someone please shed some light on whether this is indeed possible, and if this utility truly exists?

Thanks

Sounds like they're talking about Exchange Direct Push on Exchange 2003 SP2 and Exchange 2007. This throws mail and PIM data out to Windows Mobile devices.

Thank you very much for the prompt response, BBAdmin.

I see the key words here are "Windows Mobile devices" (no BlackBerry support)?

Thanks
