Linux-based BES Now Available!
Yep, you read it right - there is now an Linux-based alternative to Microsoft Exchange: Server available, with NATIVE support for a BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES)!
The solution is called "Postpath Server" and you can read more about it at BerryReview.com (BlackBerry browser friendly):
According to BerryReview.com, there is a trial available, so if any of you wanna check it out and let us know whether it's as good as it sounds, it'd be most appreciated...

Woah. How did I miss this post a week ago. I'm gonna be all over this and let everyone know how it works.

BES can already work with any linux email
Installing product ATLAS GMV on top of BES allows it to connect to ANY Linux email server that supports standard SMTP and IMAP4 protocols.
Juanje, this is a BES alternative running on linux.
Speaking of this, does anyone know where to get it post cisco acquisition?
Sorry, I know PostPath is an email and collaboration server, similar to many others (Zimbra, OpenXchange) that you may use instead of MS Exchange. But I was under the impression that the point was its ability to interface to the BES so that you could use it with a BES service, and I just wanted to point out that any standard email and collaboration server (again, like Zimbra or OpenXchange, or any other) can now be used with the BES.
