Tie Multiple BESs into one blackberry?
Is this possible? I am at a client site and they have there own BES setup for there own network. Now, carrying around two seperate BBs is kind of absurd. Can I configure my current BB to work with to BESs?

No you can't configure your BB to simultaneously work with two BES (the BB will only accept one activation / settings at a time).

Actually you can have multiple BES/BWC running on a Blackberry.
The Caveats are:
- only one will Wirelessly sync calendars, contacts, notes and tasks.
- only one will be able to look up addresses
- When composing new mail only one will be the default sent from service, so you will have to change the service at the top of the message composition screen
- the Message services cannot have the same name(i.e. Desktop). For instance I name my client site BES sevice XXX and have my BEC listed as Web client(Which you can't change). My test environment is called LAB. This setting can be change in the Desktop Manager under Redirector Settings -> Advanced.

Hope this helps
