Forwarding mail

I have installed Blackberry Ent. Server Express and Exchange Server 2007 on Windows 2003 R2 successfully. How can forward mail from Exchange to BB Server then, to BB device? Should need to connect the BB device with the sever one time for activation or is it possible a remote activation without connecting to the server by USB cable even once?

Please provide a good configuration documentation.

Thanks

you can active the BB device without connecting it with any pc or server if device is enabled for BB services. Just to tools and then Enterprise activation fill up email address with activation code. your device will be activated and start sending and receiving mails

check this step by step guide for enterprise activation more info:- http://www.blackberry.com/support/enterpriseActivationPackage/enterpriseActivation/activationProcess.html

Hi,

If you're using BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express with BIS dataplans, you'll need to download the following app:

Providing you've followed the installation guide and assigned the correct permissions for BES Admin account on Exchange, then Activation should just work.

hi you doesn't need to do any thing manually with BES server it will automatically pickup mail for the users mailbox and send to BB server then BB server will deliver this mail to users BB device.

Once we have install the BES server with our exchange server and Add users in BB server then BB server start monitoring of those mailboxes for new mails. when it finds the new mail in the user mailbox it pickup that mail from users mailbox and send that to BB intermediate server and that server delivers the mail to users BB device and same process for receiving mail from users BB device

when you have done the enterprises activation on users BB device with your companys email address and the activation code the email has been configured on the device automatically.

Note:- User BB device should have the BB service activated from the mobile service provider.
