| | A few quick questions about BlackBerry Professional Software Express
Please Login to Remove!
We've got one person at our company who would like to be able to check his MS Exchange email from out on the road securely. Our exchange server is behind our firewall, so the OWA page cannot be accessed unless the user is connecting through a VPN. I stumbled upon BlackBerry Professional Software Express, which sounded like the ideal solution since it offers 1 user full features, with additional users being able to be added at additional costs.
Now comes the questions. From reading around about the BES I got the impression this single user would have to sign up for an additional BES package from Verizon (in addition to the BIS package) if we implemented the BlackBerry Professional Software Express software....is this assumption correct? Also, when we install the software can it be installed on a server separate from the Exchange 2003 server? My boss is hesitant of putting this on the Exchange server, not knowing what all it actually will do.
Basically, I'd like a general overview of what I can expect from installing this...such as any special data packages from Verizon, if it can really enable the user to access his Exchange email from the road, etc etc. Your help is greatly appreciated, and I look forward to some good replies soon.
