Blackberry won't send emails

Hi,

One of our clients is running a BES server with just a single blackberry on it so far. After a lot of difficulty (The windows server it was on kept making everyone Domain Admins) we finally got it to be able to recieve emails and calendar appointments, but it still can't send emails.

All the tests in the utility folder complete successfully.

What log files should I be checking? Are there any easy troubleshooting tips for this?

Kind regards,
Sam

P.S. When you try and send an email from the device and a red cross appears you need to open the email and an error message will be displayed at the top (e.g. Desktop email program unable to submit message).

Do yourself a favor and stick with the source on this issue, especially since this is the first go around with the bb device on BES.  Here is where you need to start looking at permissions.

Also one other catch, is that you need to install and run the BES application as the BES Admin and not the Domain Admin.

To make life even easier here is a video that shows you how to check the Send As permissions.

As mentioned you can follow my guide in the link above and it will quickly solve your Send As issue, but it also contains all the info from the other links posted but I have explained all the aspects in detail.  But as mentioned above if your BES software wasnt installed correctly it can cause a number of issues.  As a guess I am assuming running SBS so please review my install guide below (If you are not on SBS just use it as a general overview to confirm the service account creation and required permissions):
