We run Exchange 2003 with OWA and RWW. Our executive director just purchased 4 blackberry curve 8530s for our program staff who work outside the office. The sales guy told her she didn't need extra software to use email, which is true, but to sync calendars and contacts, it appears that users need to load blackberry desktop software and sync to computers through cables. Is this correct? I've only configured two of the phones, and the one where I loaded the desktop software is syncing calendar and contacts, but the other isn't. I don't know if this is coincidental or not.
Looking at this, I thought it might be better to look at BES and I saw the Express version and downloaded and installed it. Well, mostly installed. Basically I just did the default options, so I don't even know if it's installed right. I also don't know if it is even beneficial to use BESE.
I tried to paste the image of the configuration page where I'm stuck, trying to configure database information.
