"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I dont know what BES server you are running. I have 4.1.6.

Log into your BES and go to the BlackBerry Manager application. Click on "BlackBerry Domain" and then hit the Global tab and hit "Edit Properties". Create a new Policy. In it, the first policy group "Device-Only Items" has a setting called "Maximum Security Timeout". Set this to 10. Change the value of "User can change timeout" to false. On the "Password Policy Group", change "Set Password Timeout" to 10.

Make sure you assign that policy to your users after you create it! The users' devices will most likely lock and tell them something about recieving a new IT Policy.
