Question Exchange 2003 w/out BES

Please Login to Remove!

Our Exchange administrator has refused to setup Blackberry Enterprise Server on our Exchange 2003 Server.

Is there any other way for me to modify my calendar besides syncing via USB? I have seen folks that use a Treo 650 and they are able to communicate with their calendars just fine. Feeling a little left out here.

Perhaps there is some third party software or something? I pay Nextel for Unlimited Data service. I am on a Nextel one year service plan using a Blackberry 7510. OS v.

Unfortunately NO, by the way there are way too many other things that BB can do and a Treo cannot, they are two different products geared towards two different types of users

Did he give you a reason?

It can be setup on a small computer if there are not too many users. I have 9 BB and I run mine on a workstation-class machine (P4 2.8, 512Mb RAM, 80GB HDD) with no problems.

I am assuming that you are currently utilizing the Desktop Redirector software for your messaging and synchronization.

When you pull up the documentation for the Redirector from RIM, it specifically states that wireless calendaring is not an option and is only available with the BES. I would revisit the issue with your sys admin and try to get the BES installed for your enterprise. The costs for the software is negligible (many companies give away the software with a minimum # of handhelds purchased usually 20 or less) and the follow-on T-support costs are not mandatory.

I don't use this product so I can't comment on if or how well it works. You might want to try nice office. They have a pop up add I see every now and then on this site or google to find it. I remember seeing another third party solution but not sure if it was wireless or you needed to attach to your PC.
