BlackBerry Enterprise Server & Exchange 2007 - Emails on device missing attachments

Got a weird one here.  I have a situation, not all the time, but I've noticed it happening more frequently, where an email will be delivered to the device, but there will be no mention of the attachment.

The icon on the envelope will have the paper clip, but there will be no attachment, not mention of the attachment.

So as a test, using Outlook, I saved the attachment, resent myself the email with the attachment.  Then on my berry, I saw the attachment!

What would cause the BES or the device for that matter to exclude the attachment on the email?

Thanks in advance.

check if blackberry attachment service is running on BES

start > run > services.msc
double click that
check logon tab

Check if it's logged in as DOMAIN\BesAdmin or local system account.

thanks

I should have mentioned that I checked if the BES Attachment service was running and yes it is.  Even restarted it.

It is running under the Local System Account.

I want to reiterate, I do receive emails with attachments on my Berry, only on a select few emails that attachment doesn't show up.  What I need to know is why and how to correct it.

Thanks.

it should run under DOMAIN\BesAdmin

Are rest of the services also running under local system account or DOMAIN\BesAdmin ?

Please edit the service logon option to domain\besadmin.

thanks

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

yeah i dont think local system account will work - but it has to be the "blackberry service account" which can be literally any account you want or make - as long as it has FULL access to the blackberry users exchange objects, including send-as and receive-as

but, lets back up a step

make sure ports tcp 3101, 1999, 2000 and 1900 are forwarded in your router/firewall so they hit the BES server.  attachments go on 3101 and in some cases the other 3 ports

For some reason, the "BlackBerry attachment service" was the only on running under Local System Account.  All the others were running under BESAdmin.  I have switched the service to BESAdmin, I'll wait and see if that does it.
