Been searching the site, but maybe not looking in the right places..

I am running Windows Vista Ultimate. and I have a BB 7520
I am looking to start my own BES server for personal use. What is needed for me to do this? what do I have to get, need, what ever. any input would be appreciated.

BES is for environments that have one of the following email servers:
Microsoft Exchange Server
Lotus Domino Server
Novell Groupwise Server

My guess is that you're not running your own email server at your home, so running BES on your own is probably not going to happen. (Especially with Windows Vista)

You might consider using a hosted BES provider such as Mailstreet or ExchangeMyMail.

You can google for both of those.
BES 5.0.3 MR4 :-: Exchange 2007 SP3 RU3
