I am try to access our sharepoint extranet site via a blackberry and I get the following error:

You are not authorized to view this page
You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied because your Web browser is sending a WWW-Authenticate header field that the Web server is not configured to accept.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please try the following:

Contact the Web site administrator if you believe you should be able to view this directory or page.
Click the Refresh button to try again with different credentials.
HTTP Error 401.2 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due to server configuration.

A few things your could try.

1) You could turn on anonymous access (doubt you want to do this) to the SharePoint site.

2) Change the Support HTTP Authentication setting on your BES's MDS-CS instance. This should then prompt you for credentials.

3) Use a third party product, check the SilverDust link in my signature.

A third party product, like SilverDust, is really the only option that will give you full access to your SharePoint content (i.e workflow support, document checkin/out)

Hmmm we have Sharepoint available through our BES network, setting HTTP authentication as above but also forcing kerboros. What does SilverDust do differently to your normal broswer on Sharepoint?

I see it does more native integration but AD support, Calender and Email can all be done via BES. The lists and other items can be viewed via the standard browser view.

Sure, I can list some differences between SilverDust and viewing SharePoint through the browser.

Browsing experience
SilverDust is a rich ui client (not browser based). We give you access to your SharePoint content (i.e sites, document libraries, lists, calendars) in an easy to use format.

The two native browser modes SharePoint offers are normal (browsing from a workstation) and mobile. The normal mode renders extremely small on the blackberry device, requiring you to scroll around the page and zoom in to simply navigate between items and pages. The mobile mode is a striped down text equivalent of the normal mode, which is for all intensive purposes read only text mode.

The speed difference between the two is significant. Silverdust is optimized to handle the SharePoint structure. Browsing in normal mode is often slow an unreliable because of the number of images/menus MDS has to render on almost every SharePoint page. Plus many of the dropdown menus don't function.

SharePoint Content
In document libraries, Silverdust allows you to create new documents, edit existing, delete documents, open documents directly on the device, check in and out documents, change custom views and create folders. Future versions offer download resumablility and multiple document downloads.

The browser will only allow you to view document names (in a list) and download one document at a to the device.

In SilverDust, you can import calendar entries directly into your blackberry calender or view and edit entries as a standard list. In the browser, you can only view the bulky calendar control.

Silverdust offers workflow support. You can approve workflows from directly on the device. The browser does not offer any workflow support.

A few last things, SilverDust is a completely secure model. Every transaction between the client, silverdust server, and SharePoint is encrypted. Additionally, no special code or modifications have to be added to SharePoint to get SilverDust working. All you do is point the server to a site, document library, or list URL the push it to the SilverDust client.

There are a few other features outline on the SilverDust Site

There are a new videos available at SilverDust Videos

Mobile SharePoint
 
If you're the only one using SharePoint from a PDA then you can probably stick with the browser. That said, if there are a few of you using it then I agree with James; you should check out a 3rd party solution if you want mobile access to SharePoint from your BlackBerry.

I can't really speak to your individual case (everyone uses SharePoint for something different) but my company, WICKSoft, makes a mobile SharePoint solution specifically for the BlackBerry. Here is a link to the SharePoint info:
Mobile SharePoint on the BlackBerry with WICKSoft

Basically it gives you a 'BlackBerry' experience for everything in SharePoint and is used by people all over the world. Aside from being way faster than the browser, it lets you do a lot of things that are simply not possible from a 'vanilla' BlackBerry.
