| | desktop manager install type?
Please Login to Remove!
I'm sure I've seen this information before, but I can't find it via searching, nor reading the various FAQ's...
I have a BB (that I own) tied into my companies BES server. On my work desktop machine (which is connected to the company LAN / Exchange server /etc) the BB desktop manager is installed with the BES option.
I'd also like to install the BB desktop manager on my own laptop for the purpose of loading new software, backing up, and using the phone as a modem. If feasible, I wouldn't mind copying my BB's contact list to the notebook. This laptop is NEVER on the company LAN.
Which desktop manager install option do I choose: BES/Redirector or BIS? If I choose the BES install type, do I just choose any mail server type? Also, if I choose the BES install type, it'll later ask me if I want to use BES or the redirector...
I seem to remeber reading about someone who messed up their BB (killed their BES activation or something) because they chose the wrong option - so now I'm paranoid...
