microsoft exchange without BES server?!?!
:bb: I am a bit confused. If someone can help I would appreciate it. I do not have a BES server, but I do have microsoft exchange email. I know that you are supposed to have a BES server but someone has told me that there is something called "blackberry connector" that may be able to link my email and the blackberry w/o a $2000 server. Is this correct?
I think you're referring to "redirector", and it's not a decent solution, IMO. It will only forward email (no sync), and you need to leave a PC on 24x7 this to work.
what is the cost on this flex deal that you use?
There is replacement for "blackberry redirector" - a new tool called "Mail connector" and works with exchange to not only send email to your blackberry, but it can also "sync" in a sense, deleting mail you indicate to delete on "Mailbox and handheld". I have it for my Verizon 7130e BB, but not sure if you have it for Cingular (assuming that is your carrier). I downloaded mine from a Verizon Support website.
just download BES express for free.
BES express is one option - if you have 1 handheld
using redirector means you have to leave your computer on at all times and online - and you don't get attachments
it is 2 way reconciliation like BES
mail connector - again means your computer has to be on and running at all times; allows attachments - but has 1 way reconcile IF your using BIS 2.0
your other options:
1) Outlook Web Access - can your your computer off; gets attachments; 1 way reconcile w/ BIS 2.0; OWA 2003 is supported only on BIS 2.0 as well
2) usin POP/IMAP access
3) using a forwarding rule
for these 3 options (and mail conenctor) you need to have a BIS accont
hope this helps
Also, it seems to me the only reasons to use Mail Connector in place of BIS/OWA are if you don't have OWA access or that you want instant delivery of messages without the 15-min delay.
