My understanding was that the only way to get Exchange mail/calendar/contacts to a Blackberry was to setup BES or BES Express on Server?

Is this not the case? Can I simply use the Blackberry Internet Service?

If you are trying to set up the BlackBerry via the BlackBerry internet service, try testing the webmail URL with your credentials and test it before you try to set it up.

If your credentials work then there should be no problems setting up the connection.

Enter the email address and mailbox password. If it fails, enter the details manually, make sure you check the box for OWA. If it still fails, there is probably an unusual configuration detail within your system that we will need to know about to help you further.

The original author did not ask about calendar and contacts. If you have a new question, please post it using a new thread.

One thing to remember for setting up Blackberrys with OWA is that is needs a SSL connection with the mail server, so when entering the OWA address in the blackberry setup, make sure it is an HTTPS in the address line.

As far as the address book and calendar, the others are correct that OWA and Blackberry do not sync wirelessly so thus you will need to either use the desktop redirector or cable sync with desktop to get that information across.

BES is one of the best solutions to make sure that all information is synced without hassle from Exhange or other mail servers, but there are other solutions as well.

Just my 2-cents worth.

Hi explorer: I haven't stopped the thread. I was attempting to keep the thread on track with your original query. If you needed full integration of BlackBerry with emails, calendar and contacts then please identify that. If you were looking to synchronise emails only via OWA, you would need a BIS account. If you were trying to synchronise email, calendar and contacts via OWA then this isn't possible with BlackBerry, as Flipp identified, without additional software. You could synchronise all of these using Exchange ActiveSync and an ActiveSync capable device but you made no mention of this in your original query. Sorry if there was confusion.

Ok well do I need to open a nother question? if so I will. I need to make these stupid things work.
1) I HATE BLACKBERRYS. THEY ARE THE BIGGEST PIECES OF *&@% EVER MADE.
2) who makes a phone that does not natively connect to exchange. Even android does and that is a piece of %&!*.
3) how do I integrate these devices into an exchange envirment

OK, for Exchange you have two choices. Either register a BIS account and synchronise emails only through the OWA interface or install BES Server software and synchronise email, calendar and contacts. BES Express v.5 is a free download from Research in Motion and has no ongoing licensing costs. It is designed to sit on an Exchange server but you must check the hardware specs of your server before attempting to install it.

BlackBerry doesn't work natively with Exchange in the same way that Windows Mobile, Android and iOS devices do as it is built around a platform of security rather than as a mobility bolt-on. The server software gives that level of security.
