Default Question about redirector vs. BES

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I have a user in a remote office without a BES server who has been receiving her email on her Blackberry via the desktop redirector.

Her workstation is being switched from a desktop to a laptop. Using the desktop redirector on the laptop is not feasible for obvious reasons as it will not maintain a static connection to the network. Is there any way I can set this user up to be able to get her mail to her via a redirection method, or is it better to look into the BES small business server for this location?

I apologize if this has been discussed before; I am in need of some fast information in preparation for an upcoming discussion on the matter later today.

Thanks for any advice!

If she can get messages via OWA or IMAP, BIS might be the best bet. It won't be instant like Redirector (15 min polling), but will mean that she won't have to have a computer with a persistent connection.

Sure but wheres her mailbox and wheres the BES? If her mailbox is on the mailserver in the 'main office' and the BES is there as well, then just hit her up with a BB as per the 'norm' and no issues..even works if the remote office is in another country...

If it's only 1 user. I would look at connectivity between the mail server there and the closest BES.

Our BES is in NY and it support mail servers in London and Tokyo.
