Setup Exchange to send email to smartphone

I could use some help figuring out why I cannot get my exchange email on a blackberry.  I have setup Exchange, but I am not exactly sure of what the mail server name is.  When I setup an in-house user in Outlook for an exchange account, I simply type in the server name ('Server') and it connects the user to their ehange account.  

What should I be using as the server name when I am setting up a blackberry?  I have tried server.domain.com, but it doesn't work.  Do I need to open a port on my comcast router.

Basically you need to setup a contact and forward emails to that contact.

Server name? If you are using desktop redirection all you need is to have your mail client open. If you are using BES all you need is email address and PIN.

I wish I did have blackberry redirector.
I can no longer find it on the web.
Do you know where to find the download?

Emanhan,

Thanks, but that points me to the Blackberry Desktop Manager.  I have set that up several times and nowhere can I find a way for it to redirect email to my blackberry.  I have used the redirector in the past, but can no longer find it.

6.0 does not support redirector anymore since free BES Express was released. You can use older versions

Thanks for the help. I am using outlook web access. After many attempts I finally got it working. I had the path to OWA wrong so when I was setting up blackeberry account I couldn't connect to server. The solution was "https://server.domain.com/exchange". and "domain\user". I looked over this and just assumed I had a firewall/port issue. Hope this helps someone in the future.
