Is there a need to upgrade the database for Blackberry BES 5.0.x if we use MSDE2000 currently?

Microsoft MSDE 2000 was used for initial the database configuration, as we were in a hurry to build a BES service.  The BES Version is 4.1.6 currently. We are looking to upgrade this (finally) to BES 5.0.x.

With this will we need to upgrade into Microsoft SQL Server Express 2008 or SQL Server 2005 or newer?

It will probably be best to migrate the database to something more robust.

This will hopefully help:

Hello again - can you help me clarify if the migration route to SQL Server 2005 from MSDE is also applicable to go from MSDE to SQL Server 2005 Express SP3?
