We just migrated off our last BB device and I have uninstalled the BES server.  I would like to now delete the bes account that is used throughout AD/Exchange.  What are all the things I should do to clean this up other than just delete the account?

Hi,

Check the below mentioned article/documentation from RIM. This will help you.

One more check before you actually delete, Just disable the id for sometime to see if you have any other services which were configured to run under BESAdmin

I had already gone through that article to uninstall, but I was wondering more about the integration of the besadmin account and removal of it from certain areas in Exchange and such.

Besadmin account have exchange send as rights on exchange mailbox store, the rights can also be on ad user accounts. If blackberry documentation on installing blackberry you can find out where its permission n then you can reverse the changes

I followed this article and did the reverse of it.  I suppose had I just deleted the besadmin user that would have accomplished this too, but it would have left a throttling policy around and a few other things.  I just like to be as clean as possible.
