Default Exchange cc:Mail connector and Blackberry

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, my management have asked me to install a BES.

We are currently still running Exchange 5.5 but have NO direct SMTP mail connection - messages destined for recipients outwith our organisation are routed to a cc:Mail PO (using the MS connector for cc:Mail) and then passed to another cc:Mail PO which deals with forwarding the messages out onto the internet. This means we cannot simply type an email address into the "to" field in Outlook - internet mail addresses have to be added to either a Personal Address Book or Contacts as "cc:Mail" addresses and we can then email these recipients.

So, to the Blackberry! We can send and receive mail to/from everyone on the Exchange GAL and can also receive mail from the internet on the device but cannot send external (i.e. internet) email from the device - I assume it's sent as SMTP mail whereas I need it to be sent as type CCMAIL for our Exchange server to be able to process it.

Not very hopeful that this is possible but perhaps someone out there has some ideas or workarounds?

Thanks for your time and consideration!
