Default MS Exchange Question

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone- Although I have been a long time reader of your forum, this is my first post on here..forgive me if I break any rules. I've also searched for an answer but I am still slightly confused.

I attend a University that currently has Microsoft Exchange based email. As a student, we have full exchange accounts with Outlook Web Access or can use MS Exchange with an Outlook client. Students are not allowed access to the BES.

I currently pull my email into my BB Curve 8330 through Verizon. Is there anyway to sync my exchange calendar with my device? I know the easiest way of course, is to use BES-but I can't. Is there a 3rd party company I could use for this?

I know I could sync the Exchange acct with Gmail and use Google sync to pull everything in but I hate to do all those steps. I am even willing to pay a monthly fee to have another service just do it all automatically for me.

Thanks again for your help!

Could try desktop manager that will sync with Outlook with the exchange account or invite yourself when you make a calendar entry in OWA/Outlook and you will get a meeting request to your BB and will add to the calendar.

Not very convenient but it works.
BES 5.0.1 MR1-Server 2008 R2-Exchange 2010 [ESX 3.5]
