Which account should BES services run as?
The company that installed our BES server installed it in the BESAdmin account (which is correct), but they set the blackberry services to run as administrator. Is that correct? or should the services run as BESAdmin as well?

On BES 4.1.6

All but the attachment service are running as BESAdmin here.

Atachment service is running as Local system

Ok - That's what I thought because when I setup my own blackberry server, that's what I ran it as.

What happens if you leave it as Administrator? Will there be any issues?

That all depends on what permissions the admin has that the BESAdmin doesn't...

Yes there will be issues; don't run your BES as a domain admin. Read the install guide for what the permissions requirements are. You should use an account with THOSE permissions.
