We are currently running our mail through Microsofts Hosted Exchange Service, Liv@EDU. It's working great for all PC users and Windows Mobile users. The problem is some of the users are Blackberry Guys. Is there a workaround or a 3rd party product to wireslessly sync our Blackberries to Outlook Live. We thought about getting a couple of accounts with Blackberry support hosted by another provider,  then we have and the users just IMAP thier email. But then we run into problems with Shared Calenders etc.. across 2 Exchange Servers.

Hi, the Liv@EDU email account should integrate directly into the BlackBerry web client as it uses Outlook Web Access (OWA).  If you have a user that already has a BlackBerry and BlackBerry data plan log onto their web client (or via Email Settings icon on the device) and add the email address.  If it fails select to manually configure the details and then select Work Email and OWA.

No, but BIS, never is able to sync calendar and contacts, that must be done via desktop manager and the usb cable.  Do you have a BES server?

Sorry i'm very new to the world of Blackberry. No We dont have a BES server. And we ideally want to do it wirelessly without the use of desktop manager.

What you could do as a work around is setup a BlackBerry email address (this is doe BlackBerry web client or via the Email Settings icon on the Blackberry), then via Outlook live create a forwarding rule to forward a copy of the email to the blackberry address.  In the Blackberry web client you can change the reply address to the Liv@EDU email address.
