Default Exchange 2003 & Push Mail

Please Login to Remove!

Hi...

I work in a BES environment with Exchange 2007 and don't know the answer to this. Is there a way to use Exchange 2003 and push to a blackberry handheld device?

Yes. You use a BES.
It's the same.

Update...
From the documentation it appears that with Exchange2003 SrvPk2 the server can do this. Can anyone confirm this?

Not sure I understand the question.
Are you asking if Exchange 2003 is compatible with BES?
Are you looking to do a mixed Exchange 03/07 environment?

Ok... Thanks...

there was another post on the Blackberry.com forum where a user has a VP and there are two companies. They asked the question if it would be possible to get email from both companies. I replied that they could push from Exchange 2007. They responded they were on Exchange 2003.

I was thinking they can leave the VP on one BES on the primary business and push mail from the 2nd business using Exchange 2003?

Is that feasable?

I'm sorry - I don't understand the question. Your last sentence doesn't make sense.

To push to a BlackBerry, you need BES. The version of Exchange is immaterial.

Sorry...

Two businesses with two BES servers.
Leave user on one Bes on business 1 and push mail to user like BIS from business 2.
(User is only added to one BES)
Can this be done?

It could be done, but business 2 would have to expose Exchange to the outside world for POP access (as an example). Many companies, and all of those with a serious security department, do not allow that.

Business 2 could also forward the e-mail to the BBs e-mail address. Not optimal either.

Ok, that security piece could be a definite issue.
Do other business do this? (push to Blackberry) I thought that it was similar to the Mobile3 push?
I didn't realize it opened the server up for issues...

thxs.... for the reply...

You don't really have an option to "push" email from the other company. Forwarding is likely your best bet but it has security / compliance implications.

Company A - has the BES account on the BB and it gets full BES push capabilites, and all other BES functionality.

Company B - Creates a GAL contact with Company A email address, users email from company B is forwarded to this contact.

Issue - all email will be replied as Company A address. Audit trail is compromised for Company B and likely would not be sufficent if they follow SEC/SOX etc regulations.

User will also lose all PIM functionality to Company B as you will only have Calendar, Contacts for Company A.

Personally I'd provide a Windows Mobile device for the company that is using Exchange ActiveSync, gives you the best functionality but you need to carry two devices. Other option would be just login to Outlook Mobile Access for Company B as needed.

Is the goal to receive email from both Exchange accounts on one BB?
