I'm trying to convince them to come over to the BES, but haven't gotten them to do it yet.
Desktop Redirector syncs a BB on BIS with Outlook but this obviously depends on the host PC being switched on, so is not guaranteed 24/7.
As you already have a BES I would have thought it should be quite straightforward to convince your new colleagues of the amazing new vistas that would unfold if they shared your technology - sent items sync, meeting requests, backup etc, even if they wince at the thought of remote wipe.
If persuasion fails, I'd remind them who now owns their company!
