I've setup the latest BES Express software on a windows 2003 sbs machine. Aftr much fiddling around, we finally managed to get a BB handheld (Curve 8900) activated. We originally activated it but it would get up to 95% or so complete and then start going backwards! 2 weeks later it still hadn't 100% activated. We wiped the handheld back to factory defaults, re-did the enterprise activation and this time it completed in around 7 hours.
However, there are issues with the sync and its not quite right. I'd really appreciate some help! Specifically :
1. Still getting emails twice in the ‘envelope’ icon box on the BB – the ‘envelope plus globe’ icon box is ok though. Not sure I understand the difference between the two and why I need both!
2. If I open/delete an email on my desktop, the changes I make don’t affect it on the BB
3. If I open/delete (on handheld and desktop option) on the BB, again it doesn’t change the email on the desktop
However, the calendar and contacts appear to sync correctly. I found setting the Active Directory permissions and following the installation instructions quite a challenge, and wonder whether somebody has seen this sort of problem before and can maybe give some pointers as to what needs doing?
I have previosuly installed BES version 4 on another 2003 server about 4 years ago. I didn't have any trouble installing it and it is still working perfectly now! I really dont know if the issues for this new installation (on a different server for a client) are server side or handheld in nature.
Thanks in advance for any help.
