Default Decryption failure

Please Login to Remove!

I get annoying messages on my 8700c stating decryption failed, regenerate encryption key. Other than that message which paralyzes my device for several seconds, I seem to receive all my messages. I connected to the desktop and synched and the key was not generated. We are running the latest version of BES and I could not find anywhere on the server nor on my handheld where you can generate an encryption key. I did "check the security software" on my handheld and it was OK.

Thanks

Try this...
Settings > Options > Security Options > Scroll to Services > Press Scroll wheel, select Regenerate Encryption Key. Screenshot is from my 7100t, so it may look a litte bit different for you.

How long does it take to regenerate wirelessly? Mine just sits there forever.

I believe this can also happen if there is another BES sending messages to your device. If the devices was previousely owned by another user on a different BES, messages may still be routing to it with an invalid key of course.
I had this happen after I attached my device to a test BES we use. After I removed myself from the test BES, I stopped getting these messages....

This makes some sense since I am getting messages from my BES just fine. If it was really a decryption error, I would think I would not be getting those messages. This is a brand new device; however, I migrated from eOutlook to our own BES about a month ago. Maybe eOutlook is still trying to send messages.

What I do is go to Redirector Settings and change the encryption option to manual. Generate a new key, apply it, then change it back to Automatic and reapply it. That seems to fix it on the ones I've delt with.

Have done that and it did seem to reduce the frequency of the errors, but did not eliminate them.

This must be it. I do not know what eOutlook is though. Is that a non-bes form of delivery, like the BB WEB client? In any case, I think you will have to track down this eOutlook link. Good luck - and please let us know how it turns out!

eOutlook is an email provider that uses Outlook exchange and has a BES. It is a third-party way of having BES without installing it on your own server and maintaining it. I think Mailstreet is another provider.
