Is there a way the configure iPhone to use the Blackberry Enterprise server?
I know this has been asked and answered 8 months ago. I just wanted to see if anything changed?

It being that the iPhone is not a Blackberry, it will not "work" with Blackberry Enterprise Server.

However, if what you are trying to achieve is to download email to your iPhone from Exchange, this can be done - Exchange supports both POP3 and IMAP4, which means that the iPhone can be set up to download mail using either of those methods.  Is that what you are trying to achieve?

No idea I'm afraid, though I would be doubtful myself (I can't find any details of this being worked on at all, not that this means it isn't).  Maybe there will be support when Apple release the next version of the phone, which is in the pipeline.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

There will never be any official support for the iPhone & BlackBerry unless someone creates a 3rd party application.  I know apple don't want it and I RIM will never approve it.

I know that Apple has the new 2.0 update for the iPhone, which is suppose to solve the BES problem. Does anyone if this is the case?

Yes in a way.

iPhone 2.0 eliminates need for BES.
Though you need to download and setup Activesync.

Still no BES support for iPhone.  The iPhone now supports Microsoft Push email.

There is software available for this, but due to EE rules, I'm not allowed to post the URL

Here's the URL for the Press Release in case anyone is interested
