Dear all,

we are buying  blackberry 8900 curve model 4 numbers, for my management. Now they want to configure our exchange server 2003, emails.

I already configured OWA, and we are using without any problems from long time.
Now my question is how to configure Ms Exchange server OWA emails to Blackberry 8900 curve.
my environment is Ms windows server 2003, exchange server 2003, ISA server 2004.
and juniper netscreen ssg20.
please give step by step configuration details.

Hi,
do you buy BlackBerry Server also or you will use third party service to route mails to BB handhelds?
If you are planning to install BB server, you can find step by step instructions here:

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

You will want to be using BES Professional - it is free for one handset so you can test it out, and licensing is about $100 per handset after that (up to 25 users).  It can be installed straight on the Exchange server with the above instructions

Yes, in order to push mails to you BB phones you will need to buy and properly license BB Enterprise Server. As kieran_b said: licensing is per user.
You will probably also need to buy a BlackBerry plan from your cellular provider.
I have found a nice FAQ about BB services :

Blackberry service simply allows the phone to connect to an enterprise server - the going rate is indeed about $50 per month, per device - you will usually still need an enterprise server

Hi, you don't need a Blackberry Professional or Enterprise Server (although this would offer a better experience).  Once you have a BlackBerry and a Blackberry plan (BIS) added you can go to your carriers BlackBerry setup page and create a new account.  Once the account is created add your work email address, if the setup fails just select to manually setup the account and thev select work email > OWA and put in the settings.

The BIS service I mentioned above is around $30pm or less compared to the BES service at $50pm.

Your best bet with a small number of bb users is to go with Blackberry Professional Software Express.  Outside of that, you are not going to get to sync email bi-directional and syncing anything else you will have to do via USB cable which users get tired of quick and it requires them to do something to make the sync happen instead of over the air.  Very cheap to setup and add new bb users very easily.
