Blackberry BIS account setup problem with .local domain
Posted on 2010-09-24
I've just setup a new Exchange 2010 Server and would like my Blackberry to receive email directly using IMAP. I know Exchange is working along with IMAP. I will paint the picture and then the problem.
2 x MX records (myserver.dyndns.com & mail.mydomain.com) Names changed for security
the first has the highest priority and points to my Exchange Server. the second is for failover only.
I'm obviously using dydns due to dynamic IP
My internal domain name is a .local domain.
When setting up my BIS account on my BB, it automaticall detects the secondary MX record. I have tried changing this manually but as my BIS login credentials details, which are picked up through the email address I enter at setup are email@example.com domain and my Exchange/Domain login credentials are firstname.lastname@example.org it fails the with an email validation account error.
I believe the fact that my BIS account is attempting to authenticate with a username ending with a .com rather than the actual .local domain username, it is failing.
How do I get around this.
Thanks in Advance
