We have an in-house Exchange 2007 server, however we would like to know if it is possible to use a hosted BES (Blackberry Enterprise Server) without also using a cloud exchange provider

I'm not an expert at it, but I don't believe you can.  Being that BES has to interact with your Active Directory and Exchange Information Store.  It would require a lot of ports to be open and probably pose more security problems having it offsite.

Hi,

Hosted BES server is feasible so long as the WAN link between the service provider and your Exchange Server has very low latency and sufficiennt bandwidth.

RobMobility - that does look like what we are looking for, however locating a provider that offers that service is becoming difficult.  The cloud providers such as intermedia are only offering hosted BES with their cloud exchange.  Do you know of any solution providers that offer just hosted BES?

Hi,

Unfrotunately, the New Experts Exchange doesn't show me where you are anymore (timezone).

I assume you're somewhere in the US?
