Question Attachment Service and BES 3.5

Please Login to Remove!

OK, I just installed BES 3.5 (it's old, I know) w/ the latest service pack. I am aware that I need the Attachment Service to be able to view attachments on the Blackberrys (8700c's). The problem is, I cant seem to find the software to install on the server to make this work.

Anyone know where I can get the Attachment Service software? Blackberry sales seemed to think that it was part of the BES server isntall but I dont see an option to install it.

BES 3.5 didn't do attachments well

Go get a Tsupport contract and upgrade to 4. something

Edit: I found this handy dandy link for you:

Thanks for the reply.

I actually own a copy of BES 4.1 but I dont currently have the software to support it. We're still running NT4 for another 6 months or so.

I too came across that section of the Blackberry website but it doesnt really answer my questions. It appears that the Attachment Service for 3.5 is a seperate program and install. Does anyone know where I can get it?

3.5 attachment service only works with 95X/85X devices.

BES 3.6 might be an option?

Well, that sucks. There isnt a free upgrade to 3.6 is there?

I still can't find the Attachment Service. Anyone have a copy of BES 3.5 that can verify that it should have been included? If so, any chance I could get you to upload a copy to me? I'll supply FTP site if necesary.

This isn't a piracy site, go purchase Tsupport contract and get 4.x on there.

I'm only asking for the Attachment Service part. I own both 3.5 and 4.1 already. I shouldnt have to pay for a feature that should be included in what I already have. Don't you agree?

I understand where you are coming from, but the if you purchased the 3.5 software and you lost or are missing it that is your fault or if you didn't get it in the first place, call the guys you bought it from. BES 3.5 is a bad bad bad horrible idea.
