Default BES for one?

Please Login to Remove!

Here's my situation -- I have all my mail thru pop3. As part of my training, I'll be moving my email domain to a test exchange server. My company is not going to pay $2K for the BES software, especially for one person. Does anybody know if there is a 1 user demo, or a way for me to get my mail via blackberry without resorting to forwarding it thru Outlook?

I think the BPS is not the same, i just downloaded a new version of BESXpress the other day. It would make sense that BPS Express is to BPS what BES Express is to BES though

it was an update, and apparently that link on the site is dead. they no longer offer it for small to medium businesses, that implies that they still do for Corporations. I knew the BPS was taking the place of the SMB BES, however to leave up a link is a bit misleading.

Hi Iím new to the BB seen I will be getting my 8703 hopefully soon. Hereís the
Question when install the desktop manager I though I seen something about which mail service I think I took the one than did your personal email and your job? Do you have to pay extra for that email service and if so what will that cost
I though it was free the push email? If not were can find which one I took and can you change I know this long but one last one. Will the email still work and would be like I get now on my treo with windows. On BB.com they show 4.3 should I get one and leave off 4.2 service pack 2
