I can recieve and send SMS, and can receive emails, but I cannot reply or send a new email, it has a little red X to the left every time.  I've wiped my BB, deleted myself off the BES, and re added myself and re synced and still no go....

First thing is to go thru this article, there are a few reasons why you will see this error. The most common reason is the Send As permissions are not set correctly.

If you open an email with the red cross you will see an error message at the top.  I assume it is Desktop email program unable to submit message.  Assuming this message is present it confirms that you have a Send As issue.  Also if you are a Domain Admin run the script below as detailed in the link I posted above;

dsacls "cn=adminsdholder,cn=system,dc=domainname,dc=c om " /G "DOMAINNAME\BESadmin:CA;Send As"

Also just in general you want to make sure any BES activity including installing the BES application, that you do it as the BES Admin and not the Domain Admin.

Once the Send As permissions are in place you don't need to restart the mailbox store.  In order to resolve this issue you can just stop the Blackberry router service for 20 minutes (assuming stopping the BES services would cause less impact to your environment).

From my link above:

To correct the Send As issue I have outlined the steps I use to quickly resolve this issue:

1. Stop the Blackberry Router service.

2. Open Active Directory and from the View menu select "Advanced Features". Then go to each user that will be added to the BES and open their properties, go to the security tab and add the user BESadmin and add the security permission "Send As" (See additional info below).

3. Run the following script logged on as Administrator
Note: Only use this step if you have BlackBerry users that are members of Admin groups.

dsacls "cn=adminsdholder,cn=system,dc=domainname,dc=c om " /G "DOMAINNAME\BESadmin:CA;Send As"

Example 1: dsacls "cn=adminsdholder,cn=system,dc=experts-exchange,dc=com " /G "EXPERTS_EXCHANGE\BESadmin:CA;Send As"

Example 2: dsacls "cn=adminsdholder,cn=system,dc=blackberryforums,dc =com,dc=au " /G "BLACKBERRYFORUMS\BESadmin:CA;Send As"

Example 3: dsacls "cn=adminsdholder,cn=system,dc=mobilenetwork,dc=lo cal" /G "MOBILENETWORK\BESadmin:CA;Send As"

NOTE: dsacls can be found in the Windows Server 2003 SP1 Support Tools pack: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=6EC50B78-8BE1-4E81-B3BE-4E7AC4F0912D

4. Wait 20 minutes and then restart the BlackBerry Router service.

5. Restart the BES server (this step can be skipped if you can Send correctly after the Router service starts).


Additional Information

To globally apply Send As permissions to all user objects follow these steps:
1. Open Active Directory.
2. Select the "View" menu and ensure "Advanced Features" is checked.
3. Right mouse click on your domain name and select Properties
4. Select the Security tab
5. Press the Advanced button at the bottom on the security tab
6. Select "Add" and enter your Blackberry Service Account name (e.g. BESadmin) and select OK
7. When the permissions screen appears change "Apply onto:" to "User Objects"
8. In the permissions box scroll down and check the Allow box beside "Send As" and press OK
9. Press Apply and OK to exit

Are you able to see the message email address?
Go to any email in your blackberry and move up to the From and click on the blackberry button, then select Show Address, it should have a valid email address. Sometime I noticed that the RIM server and the Exchange server sync breaks and the email address on the Blackberry will give a X400 type address. Then you might have another issue that I help solve too. Let me know the email address type and I will send that fix too.
RIM told me to follow these steps in KB-912918 but instead of selecting Add... from the security tab, drill down to Advanced and add the user there. Only allow the Send As permission. Make sure you clear the router cache.

Sorry for the mix-up, I forgot to add the solution.
To resolve this issue, complete the following steps:  
1. Export, delete and re-create the BlackBerry Enterprise
Server Messaging Application Programming Interface (MAPI)
profile.
2. Stop and restart the BlackBerry Router,
BlackBerry Dispatcher and BlackBerry Controller.
Important: Restarting certain BlackBerry Enterprise Server
services will delay email message delivery to BlackBerry
smartphones. For more information, see KB04789

yes it autocompletes the address so I know it's talking to the server, but won't let me send or reply to emails.

yes!  Turns out somebody added me to the domain admins, thus revoking my send as rights since it's a restricted group, that last slide in that video made me realize that thanks!

If you need to remain as a Domain Admin then step 3 in my guide above corrects the issue of the permissions being revoked.
