Default Removing Blackberry Service Account

Please Login to Remove!

We have a BES 4.0 server for Exchange. The issue is we have discovered that a past user has installed the BES server to run under his user account. This user is no longer with us, so we want to remove it, and run it under a dedicated user account. I have created 'BESAdmin' for it to run under. My question is, besides giving it the Send As permission for the domain, and the Exchange View Only Administrator role, are theyre other permissions needed?

And more importantly, can i simply change the blackberry services to run under this account and im done? Or is there another step. Please let me know.

Make sure this account isn't in any special groups like domain admins or the likes.

This happens quite a bit more than you might think.
