Exclamation Restricting Exchange Server Access to BES only

Please Login to Remove!

We are trying to lockdown access to email through the BES server ONLY (and Outlook no OWA or OMA either). As such, I am trying to identify all the possible points of access and means of preventing access whether Blackberry based or not.

1. Active Sync - Can disable in Exchange
2. BIS (user enters SMTP server info) - Can this be disabled? Set of IP addresses to be blocked?
3. Exchange Redirector - BB Desktop software with USB. I haven't used this in a while, but there really doesn't seem to be a way to stop it. Maybe set a registry key??

Any other thoughts?

Thanks

Rather user enters in POP / IMAP or OWA server. Block all 3 and you're all set.
