Default BES and Chat messengers

Please Login to Remove!

I want to clarify the following. I am on BES and I have installed 3 different personal emails additionally to the business one. I have also installed AIM+ messenger and Windows messenger.

I know that all emails can be retrievable from BES administrator, the same applies for chats as well? even though I dont save any discussion?

please clarify ....

You should assume that ANYTHING that goes through your BES connection can be viewed and logged by your BES admin. They may or may not be logging your chats but there is no way to know without just asking them.

As Rambo says, always assume that it is monitored. There are posts on here from BES Admins asking how to do it due to pending litigation and other concerns.

The best policy to follow, IMHO, is to not put anything personal on a BES-connected device. If you feel the need for personal email and chat while working, get a personal device and pay for it yourself. These days, firms are looking for reasons to let staff go so don't do something to give them that option.

Yes, they can even go as far as to disable those public chat programs if they want.
8830 -> 8330 -> 9550 -> 9650
Just think about how far BlackBerries have come from then till now... And what else is coming.
