Blackberry on SBS2008
Posted on 2013-02-06
Looking for some advice/info around Blackberry integration with SBS2008.
I have picked up a client who has a SBS2008 server. They currently don't have any users accessing email etc from a mobile device, although they do have OWA & RWW setup & configured for remote access.
They now have a user who'd like to trial a blackberry device & sync it with their exchange account.
The telephone rep that manages their account has advised them they need to install BES enterprise on the SBS server to be able to sync to the device.
My knowledge of BES is limited, so i guess i'm looking for basic guidance on the interaction/compatibility of BES with SBS2008.
Do i need to install it on the SBS box, or can/should it be installed on a dedicated client/server?
Do i actually need BES or can it work with active sync? etc.
Thanks in advance.
