Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Do you mean just using the browser on your BB or to properly synchronise you BB email etc natively?

If it's the latter then it depends if your hosted exchange server also has a Blackberry Enterprise server, if so then you need a blackberry account setup there, and your blackberry has to be on an enterprise plan with your Telco. Once you have all this you can do enterprise activation on your BB and email/contact/calendar will sync.

If you want just email than find out if your hosted exchange has POP3 or Imap enabled. Then you go to your BB account at your telco (you don't need the enterprise BB plan then just the normal one) and setup your email account there to grab email off the exchange server for you this way.

Yes, for now I only want to use the browser to access my email.  I do have a hosted exchange server and it is possible to purchase the BB service, but then I have to change my BB to a BES plan to make it all work.  Currently I am only on a BIS plan with my telco, and first want to see what I can get out of it without moving to a BES plan.

Thanks for your help.
so what happens when you open OWA in the BB browser? Should work I would have thought.
