I just downloaded the latest BES express. After the install I of course can't get the device to activate with the user I just added. I'm getting the incomplete delegation user information message in the log.

Apologies if this is a dumb question, but should I have a BESADMIN user account somewhere in this mix?

ANy ideas please?  thanks

Yes, you need a BESAdmin account used to install BESX.  The directions are all but identical.  Are you using BES w/ MS Exchange?

From this site pick your version of Exchange and it will explain how to configure the BESAdmin account.

BESadmin account does not need any mailbox but rather the proper rights in AD / Exchange.

BESAdmin does need a mailbox as per the installation instructions.

Check this training, it's very useful, only they did not mention that you have to install Exchange System Manager BEFORE installing BES.

I used the "Administrator" account to install BESX. I'm asking if I need a user specifically called "BESADMIN". The BESX seemed to install fine and is working, but in other installations of BES I have seen there is always a specific user account called BESADMIN.

Is the "administrator" account enough?

This is BESX on SBS2003 with Exchange 2003
