Hello,

I'm trying to setup this configuration :
an employee works with another company and has a BES account on his Blackberry. He wants me to add his other company email on his device. I've found out that I can not have 2 BES accounts activated on one device but I have an exchange server with ActiveSync activated in my company. Is it possible to install the synchronisation using ActiveSync on his blackberry ? so he will have the mails of the other company with BES and my company with activesync ?
Thank you!

if e-mail is the only concern, you can just add a new email address (pop / imap based) into the device. the BES "side" will remain intact.

I don't want to activate pop or imap on my Exchange server, for security reasons.

I see.

Well, the bad news is, Blackberry Devices (as far as I know) can't really utilize ActiveSync, it's only for Microsoft devices.

There is however a good news, there are several 3rd party solutions that allow this without interfering the BES: NotifySync (http://www.notifysync.co.uk), AstraSync (formerly AstraBerry --or something like that -http://www.astrasync.com), etc.

Prices: i don't know. AstraSync offers free trial though.

when I say "activeSync".... it's what I use to configure the androids or "iDevices".... are we talking about the same feature ?

ActiveSync as in Microsoft Exchange's ActiveSync, right ?

yes, the "Commander Data" and "iDevices" are (besides the obvious Microsoft devices) are ActiveSync aware, only RIM devices are not (yet ?).

Side note: I just read this from my RSS: http://www.zdnet.com/blog/microsoft/microsoft-rim-expected-to-unveil-new-free-hosted-blackberry-service/8939
