Hello,

I need help pushing a file (html, doc, or xls) wirelessly through BES (ver. 4.1.4.15) to a number of Blackberry devices.

Thanks.

You can use MDS to deploy JAVA apps to the device, but if its a doc or xls can you just email it to them?
Best way would be setup a group in your email system for all bb users

MDS stands for Mobile Data Software, so as far as im aware you cant, its for mobile software only and not documents or generic files. Thats why email unfortunatly is probably the only viable option, unless anyone else can correct me.

If its disk space that you are worried about, you could host the files online and email out a link to the download.

What about a browser cache push via MDS? Can that work for html files?

The only thing like that I think may work is to use a use your BES policy to put a bookmarked page in the device browsers. you would still need to tell the users that its there and how to open it then, and it would have to be a html file hosted on the web.

Other that that it exceeds my knowledge sorry.
