2.Click the General tab.
3.In the Folder Redirection section, select the Selected folders option.
4.Click Choose Folders.
5.In the Choose Folders window, expand the folder that receives new email messages.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Nope - I cannot Map InBox Folders from the Address Book - only Contacts and contacts sub folders...

I am thinking Sync Sub-Email- Folders cannot be done....

Any other thoughts or Ideas very much welcome!

Kind Regards,
Dan

From looking further, the reason it may not be in the Desktop Manager for 6.0 and higher is because you do it on the device itself starting with OS 6:

For BlackBerry® 6 to BlackBerry® 7, complete the following steps:

1.From the Home screen, select the Desktop message icon.
2.Click the Menu key and select Options.
3.From the Email Preferences screen, click Email Preferences.
4.At the top of the Email Preferences screen, select the Desktop Message Service and click the Menu key.
5.Highlight and select Folder Redirection.
6.Choose the mailbox, expand if necessary, and check folder items to redirect.
7.Press the Menu key and click Save.

Go to Options, Device, About Device Versions. The third line down is your software versions. I have the Curve 9330. I just checked and on the last instructions I sent for version 6 and 7. I have 6, and those options were there. Also, this KB covers everything from Desktop software, BB software, and BES. Each way is listed sperately.

Here is the differences between the Desktop 5.0 and 6.x software:

The desktop redirector is not included since it is supposed to be handled from the device. Although there do seem to be a lot of people complaining about this feature not being included. From the device side, it apparently does not work very well.

To the best of my knowledge this is not at all possible. It is possible with a Windows Mobile phone or BB's if you install BES. Have you considered BES? It allows you FAR more control, total synchronization, many security features, monitoring, and it's free.

Rodney BarnhardtServer AdministratorCommented:
Only BES Express is free. There are limitations with the free products. Attached is the chart on the comparisons.

SBS has a 75 user limit so Express is generaly fine for an SBS environment and as for the other features, I have never seen any concens in SBS domains.

We cannot use BES - We have two External Domains on our one SBS2011. And each user has two different email address on one exchange account -  I understand that the BES can only support one email per exchange server....

Rodney BarnhardtServer AdministratorCommented:
That is correct. The device can only be registered to one domain email account.
