Calendar Synchronization Problem

I just finished my setup of Blackberry Enterprise Server Epress and everything seems to be working fine with only one exception.  Calendar entries made on a Blackberry device do not get placed in the users calendar on the server.  The users CAN make changes to their calendar via Outlook and those changes will be sent to the phone, but changes made on the phone are NOT sent to Outlook.

I am using the Administrator account for everything, so there is no special user setup just for Blackberry.

Here are the product versions:
Blackberry Enterprise Server Express Edition version 4.1.0.38
Exchange Server 2003 verison 6.5.6944.0
Windows Small Business Server 2003

Any ideas?

I am not sure if you are aware but there is Service Pack 1 available from BES 4.1.

Also if you could please give an update of your progress it would be greatly appreciated.

Check your calendar sync settings......you have three options....."Import"  (one way, Outlook to the handheld)   "Export" (one way, handheld to Outlook) and Syncronize (Both ways).....the last is the one you want.

Yes, look in the user setting or in policy.

Within the users Outlook right click on "Mailbox - User Name" and select properties.  From this properties window select permissions and see if the user is an owner of their own mailbox.  This is a common issue I have found in many companies I have done a BES installs for.  Now you will find some users will work without it but some will require the permissions to be added.

If this doesn’t work make sure you check the permissions on the BESadmin account within Exchange.

Also if you are running BES on a separate server you need to ensure that the Exchange System Manager is the same version as the exchange box.

Checking the permissions on the mailbox is a good suggestion.... I will check that out next time I am on site.
