I recently got a Blackberry, mostly for work monitoring network devices to get alerts of any problems when I am off site.
Anyway I didn't have the chance to go and connect it to the BES so I just set it up with redirector on my home exchange account. My plan was to connect it to BES when I got the chance, but at least could get messages forwarded in the meantime. Now for the really weird part.
As I understand it you get BES or redirector, but not both. I wiped my device and connected it to BES. Only problem was that I could receive emails fine, but not send. I tried everything, but still no outgoing mails. In desperation I connected it to my home desktop to try and quickly just go back to my home Exchange account. I am now getting messages redirected from my Exchange, and BES. I can only send through my home account, but that is fine for me.
So the question becomes, any idea how this happened? Any possible issues, I mean it is working just fine and actually is better for my needs than just using BES. BTW I am the admin, so no problems with cirumventing policies or whatever. I just am wondering might it cause any problem for the server, I don't see why it could.
