Question Message queuing when BES is offline

Please Login to Remove!


I recently had a period of downtime on a BES server (firmware upgrade on the RAID controller went wrong eeek!)

When I brought the repaired BES server back on-line, all the messages received during the downtime (about 20 hours) came flooding through to the end-users' Blackberries.

This got me thinking - does the Exchange sever have a queue for messages intended for the BES server or does the BES server simply look in each user's mailbox and forward a copy of whatever hasn't previously been sent to the handset?

Any insight would be appreciated.
