Blackberry BES - Connect to exchange mailbox in untrusted domain?
Posted on 2005-05-04
Hope this is the correct place for this....
We have a Blackberry Enterprise Server (22.214.171.124) in our NT4 / MSX5.5 environment. We run about 75 devices and find it to be excellent!
However, we have recently acquired another company who run a w2k3 AD domain with one msx 2k3 box. For various reasons out of the scope of this question, we do not wish to setup a trust between the two domains - the two companies operate completely independently of each other on all but the highest level.
We have been asked if we can provide one of the users in the untrusted domain with a Blackberry device. Rather than purchasing and installing a Blackberry Server for the untrusted domain, I am wondering if we can somehow configure our current BES (in our domain) to connect to a mailbox in this untrusted domain.
I understand how the BES connects to msx with a service account, and that obviously to connect to the untrusted msx box we would somehow need to throw a username/password from the unstrusted domain, so my questions is: - Does anybody know if this is possible? Has anybody tried this?
Perhaps the answer is in the Windows networking rather than the BES but I'm looking for any suggestions and/or advice.
Thanks very much guys.
