Default free 5 user quickstart edition for groupwise?

Please Login to Remove!

What happened to the free 5 user server that Blackberry used to have for
GroupWise users to get BlackBerry Enterprise Server? I installed it as
recent as a few months ago, and saw no mention in any news releases of it
being pulled? Any thoughts?
na.blackberry.com/eng/services/server/offers.jsp it is no longer
listed on that page, & when you go to the pricing info
na.blackberry.com/eng/services/server/groupwise/#tab_ddetail_subtab_pricing
it shows it full price. No more free 5 user quickstart edition? When did
that happen, I saw no news about it...sort of annoying, that was always a
great "selling point" to promote groupwise, and now they don't even have the
1 user free version that exchange/domino has...whats up with that?


This one (must be an old url left around) does show the 5 user free
na.blackberry.com/eng/services/server/groupwise/pricing-can.jsp

Sorry for the broken url, I have not reached 10 posts yet in order to post real urls

I guess this is my answer, didn't see any previous notification on this particular subject, but I may have missed it somehow -
From: Sales at BlackBerry Subject: RE: groupwise quickstart 5 user free edition for BESTo: meHi,Thank you for your email.Please be advised that the Small Business Edition & BlackBerry Enterprise Server Software, QuickStart Edition v4.1 for Novell® GroupWise® promotion has ended effective February 1, 2009.For more information on BlackBerry Enterprise Server software for Novell GroupWise, please visit the following link: eu.blackberry.com/eng/services/server/groupwise/Sincerely,BlackBerry Sales CoordinatorResearch In Motion LimitedWeb: blackberry.com

I see the *direct* link is still there -
blackberry.com/select/groupwise/index.shtml
I filled it out, and did receive the keys & the download, even the one free tech support call. So what is the deal?
