| | S/MIME Encryption - How do I set it up? (using BES + 7290)
Please Login to Remove!
unfortunately I am a newby concerning blackberrys, but I have to set up E-Mail-Encrytion for our Blackberrys (all 7290) now.
I downloaded the "S/MIME Support Package" and installed (together with a firmware update) on one handheld.
I set up the access to our LDAP-Server that hosts the certificates - on the BES as well as on the Desktop Manager and the handheld.
If I understood everything right I should be able to download certificates to the handhelp and decrypt mails.
If I try to do this on the Blackberry itself I get an error-message saying that an unknown error occured while accessing the LDAP-Server. Unfortunately, it gives no further information, error-codes or anything.
With the Blackberry Desktop Manager just nothing happens: I don't see any certificates and all the buttons for importing certificates, search on the LDAP-Server etc are greyed out.
I could barey find any information about this (only the "white paper" and the "user guide supplement" about the S/MIME support package).
So I hope that somebody here can help me out. Did I miss any steps in the configuration? What can I do to get at least an idea of what the problem is? Or does anyone know any further documentation on this topic?
I appreciate any tips and help with this
