I've recently purchased an S/MIME CAL to test out a S/MIME email encryption deployment. I'm having a few problems, and was hoping that others here might have been through this already and be able to help. My problems are:
1) I can't seem to install the S/MIME Support Package on the handheld. This is a 7130e running 126.96.36.1994. When I run the application loader, I select the "Blackberry S/MIME Support Package", and start the install, and I get a popup saying:
The application "Blackberry S/MIME Support Package" cannot be loaded, because it requires the following applications that are not available:
I found this in the Rim (KB10558): BlackBerry Search Results
I've checked that my Device Manager Software is up to date. I've tried this with both the latest v4.3 and also did a fresh install of v4.2_sp1 on another PC, and both give the same error. Has anyone else seen / resolved this problem? Is the missing "application" something that should be on the handheld, or on the PC?
2. I've enabled S/MIME settings on the BES (4.1.4 MR4 / Exchange) at the Server level, but am not able to enable S/MIME for individual users. Under individual user properties, when I try to change "Enable S/MIME Message Processing" to TRUE, it doesn't stick. I can set it, but when I go back into the user, it reverts back to FALSE.
Now I also found this RIM KB13894: BlackBerry Search Results
This seems like exactly the problem. But I'm not sure I understand the workaround: The following actions can be implemented as a workaround for this issue:
The BlackBerry smartphone user can install the S/MIME Support Package for BlackBerry smartphones on the BlackBerry smartphone.
The BlackBerry Enterprise Server administrator can activate the BlackBerry smartphone on the BlackBerry Enterprise Server to turn on this option.
But my previous problem is preventing me from installing the S/MIME Support Package on the handheld. Should I try to wipe the handheld, and then install the S/MIME Support Package on the handheld before adding to the BES?
Thanks in advance.....
