Hi,

I have just set up an SBS 2008 and the users want to use their blackberries to collect their exchange mail, I would like advice on the simplest (preferably no-cost) way of achieving this - ideally full exchange connectivity not just POP3 collection.

Thanks

you can purchase a BB server install it and connect it to your exchange server, if you are taking the BB from your service provider then your service provider must support exchange connectivity first, if not then it will be either POP3 or IMAP.

Hi,

Depending on how many users you have, why not use Blackberry Enterprise Server Express? It's free, more details here:
