Default BIS vs. BES traffic

Please Login to Remove!

My brother has a BB on BES. He was wondering if there was any BB traffic that the BES server wouldn't see - i.e., BIS email, SMS, PIN, browser, etc.

He'd rather not carry two devices and the corp doesn't mind him using it for personal stuff, but he doesn't much want to have his personal info captured by the corp server.

Is there a clear rule, or does pretty much everything go through a BES server?

thanks,

PIN and IM do not go through BES

Some traffic may not go "through" the BES, but it can all be seen by the BES

Correct.

Additionally, if you have any questions about whether you should send something over a corporate device, you probably shouldn't.

Or a personal device on the corporate server. As dc/dc stated, if you have to question it, you probably shouldn't be sending it.

Agreed.

Is it definite that BIS traffic goes over the corporate BES? I remember a few Saturdays ago, our company's email was taken down for 8 hours for maintenance and I still received and sent BIS messages. I knew the BES was down, because I couldn't get on email over VPN or citrix, and when it came back up at 4:00pm, all my pending BES messages came through at that time.

BIS does not go through BES, as it does not rely on BES to deliver your messages. However, the BES logs can show what activity is going on with a device.

Nope. Otherwise BIS-only data plans would be quite useless.
