Red face Calendar ONLY - Nothing else Please!

Please Login to Remove!

Silly as this sounds, but I've never done this before. I have a user who wants to be on the BES solely for the Calendar. NO MESSAGE redirection whatsoever.

So I placed himon the BES 4.0 for Groupwise today. These are the following settings I have enabled/disabled:


Redirection
Message Forwarding
- Redirect to Handheld: False

PIM Sync
Wireless Synchronization Enabled: True
Automatic Handheld Management Enabled: True
Automatic Wireless Backup Enabled: True

Message Filters
Synchronization enabled: True
Enabled on Handheld: True
Synchronization type: Bidirectional
Conflict resolution: Server wins

Tasks
Synchronization enabled: False
Enabled on Handheld: True (grayed out)
Synchronization type: Bidirectional (grayed out)
Conflict resolution: Server wins (grayed out)

Message Settings
Synchronization enabled: False
Enabled on Handheld: True (grayed out)
Synchronization type: Bidirectional (grayed out)
Conflict resolution: Server wins (grayed out)

Memos
Synchronization enabled: False
Enabledon Handheld: True (grayed out)
Synchronization type: Bidirectional (grayed out)
Conflict resolution: Server wins

Address Book
Synchronization enabled: False
Enabled on Handheld: True (grayed out)
Synchronization type: Bidirectional (grayed out)
Conflict resolution: Server wins (grayed out)
AddressBookSubscribed:


Here's my problem. The Event Viewer is stating the following errors:

Source: BlackBerry Synchronization
Event ID: 26016
[SYNC-PIMConnector] User's Email Settings is not allowed to sync in Groupwise, sync request ignored.[Username: 32]

Source: BlackBerry Synchronization
Event ID: 26001
[SYNC-PIMConnector] No record is picked up from this XML request, request ignored. [Username: 32, DS=Groupwise]


Any ideas?

not used groupwise but the theory should be the same configure the user as you would normally. Once the blackberry is set up. either disable wireless sync for mail notes etc...

Or send them a policy that does this, I would recommend a policy as it cannot be accidently changed by the user.

once configure connect to desktop manager
Click back up and restore
Advanced
and clear messages and memos address book etc....

Wireless calendar will then work as normal.

Does the Calendar sync at all? I would expect to see that error.

Sounds like a good idea. Never thought about using a Policy to control reconciliation.

So i'm in IT Policy and I think the correct one is CMIME Application Policy... is that correct? Within that, I set the "Enable Wireless Message Reconciliation" to FALSE. That handles reconciliation but I don't really care because I just want PIM Sync of Messages off TOTALLY. Is that by setting "Redirect to Handheld" to FALSE under the Redirection settings of the user?

I could also disable items in the PIM Sync Policy Group but there's nothing specifically for Messages. Only Address, Calendar, Memopad, Task, and Wireless Bulk Loads.

Anything else?

E-mail reconciliation is just reads, files and deletes. I would go into folder redirection and unselect all the folders. Please note that this will kill meeting requests.

Here's the latest update ... with assistance from T-Support. Theoretically, it's possible but it just doesn't work.

Message Forwarding ON
Message PIM SYNC OFF
- Calendar syncs and works (GOOD)
- Meeting/Appointment requests come in and syncs (GOOD)
- Messages come in EVEN if every single folder is UNCHECKED in Folder Redirection (BAD)

Message Forwarding OFF
- Calendar does NOT sync wirelessly (BAD)
- Messages don't come in (GOOD)
- In fact, nothing comes in at this point even though it states "Wireless Calendar" is enabled.

Looks like messages and calendar are not completely separatable as led to believe. I know it defeats the purpose of the BES but we do have execs that simply want their calendar and no email redirected. They're privileged to have an admin assistant manage their calendar and inbox for them in office.

Frustrating!

This is technically above my comprehension level, but from a usability persective- it doesn't defeat the purpose of BES at all for me, and I don't have an admin or secretary.

In fact, this was the exact same thought I had when I bought my (personal/non-work) BB. I thought... hmmm we have BES I could hook up to, but I'd just want the calendar and not the email."

Reason being, I normally take most of my appointments at work and I'd like look ahead and plan them whenever I'm out and about... personal appointments especially.

But I really have little need to be inundated with all my work email on my phone. Filters help sure, but I really only want my own (BIS/POP) mail coming through to me.

But having the Outlook calendar on my desktop to make appointments and add contact and take them on the go with me makes perfect sense.

But for what it's worth, I do use and enjoy having access to my work email as well, I'm just saying that I can easily understand this "calendar only" point of view.

hello!

edit: additional info: blackberry device is a nokia communicator 9300.

i have a solution for this problem. it seems that the synchronisation of settings between bes 4.1 (for exchange) and the blackberry configuration tool (2.0.1.5) is not working very well.
i tried a lot of different configurations on bes, but nothing worked. my approach was to filter every message. but the server-settings regarding this theme were not working or only partial.

the solution - in my case - was: on the blackberry configuration tool, installed on the client, under "filter", i have no filters and i set the default option "don´t forward messages to handheld" (sorry for my bad translation, i have the german version of this software).

calendar is working fine, messages are blocked.

an extra info: the bes 4.1 does not recognize this settings. under properties of this specific user, the default action if no filter applies is...ta taaaa, "forward messages to blackberry device".

Glad to see comments updated on an old thread

Coincidently, I've bypassed this hurdle by utilizing filters on the BES. Is this an ideal solution? NO. This is an adminstration task that SHOULD have been solved through GroupWise Rules, which seem to be inconsistent. Novell Support's golden answer is to upgrade to the latest version of GroupWise 7 - nice!

Well, we're coincidently moving to GroupWise 7.0 next month so maybe I'll revisit this issue then with the rules. The point is, we'd like to keep these type of rules on the client side with minimal intervention from the server side to make it work.

For those that are interested, here's how it was configured in BES 4.0.3

Properties of USER A
1) Filters, Filter Rules, Add Filter Name (I called this "Allow List")
2) New, Properties Conditions and Action
- Filter Name: Allow List
- Enabled: True
- From: (enter allowed recipients that will get redirected to the handheld)
- Recipient Types: Sent Directly, CC, Bcc (change according to your requirements)
- Action: Forward
3) Click OK, Click OK
4) Default Action, Forward messages to handheld: False
5) Click OK
6) Done! Now test for success.
