Default Exchange Wireless Sync without BES

Please Login to Remove!

We are reusing our BES for other purposes (uninstalling BES software), but still have two blackberry users. Is there a way to still receive their email (from our internal Exchange server) on their devices via wireless connection?

Is there a hosted solution out there that isn't a dedicated server?

If you allow POP or IMAP access to your exchange server... they can simply use BIS to get their mail.
They could also use BIS if you provide OWA access as well.

First off, you should post this in the BES admins section.

Second, I don't know about hosted solutions, but I think you can.

Third, you will not be able to get BES functionality without BES. Your users can get their e-mail onto their BB via BIS if you set up exchange to allow those connections, but they will not get calendar, contacts or tasks wirelessly. That is why we all pay so much for BES. Then there are the security issues. No BES = no top level policy. you cannot remotely kill a device or set restrictions/permissions. Also, if you had any MDS usage, that will go too.

AFAIK, the only wireless sync for email, contacts, calendar etc is via a BES. You can always used a hosted solution such as Mailstreet or others if you are taking your BES down.

Using the BIS solution as mentioned above, will allow your B users to get email, but they would have to sync their contacts and calendars via Desktop Manager and Outlook or a similar supported application. But there is not a way to sync email.

You can't sync email on any BB anyway...

Do they need wireless sync or just email or both? The subject and the content of the OP's message aren't really the same. If it's just email there are definitely workarounds that might be fine as a temporary measure.

The same functionality of the BES would be ideal, but if that's not possible then I guess email only would work. I will give BIS a try...

Thanks

The only way to get full BES functionality is with BES.
BIS provides wireless e-mail reconciliation but cannot wirelessly sync contacts, calendar, tasks and memos.
