    I would not trust downloading software such as BES from torrents.

    The fact of the matter is that you are looking to use software that will interact with a line of electronic communication that you are going to end up setting with service credentials on a computer. The chance of maladjusted software, no matter how minuscule it could be, is more of a chance than I'd want to risk, just because of the nature of how BES is designed to perform.

    Would you feel comfortable knowing that there is a possibility of using faulty software that could be modified to forward messages that contain sensitive data to an unknown location in the WWW? BES from a torrent is a dangerous idea in my eyes.

    I agree, The issue is that you have to have a SRP ID to even get it to work and if you do have that then you can download BES, if you do not then, Don't bother. RIM uses the SRP ID to verify that you are licensed to have BES and to make sure that you are only running the correct number of instances. Each server has it's own SRP ID, that is if you have multiple server licenses.

    Discussing this further here would in essence be condoning piracy. Something I am sure Pinstack doesn't want.

    If I told ya once, I told ya a Gadzillion times....


    DO NOT POST ILLEGAL QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS......EVER

    99.999% of torrents are ILLEGAL

    And getting BES by means other than RIM or it's outlets is ILLEGAL if you did not buy it from them!!!!

    rafelmann,

    You may want to look into Hosted BES. There are a number of companies that offer that service. I am not familiar with any in particular to recommend, but perhaps another stacker will have a suggestion.

    Unless Rim has changed something Blackberry Professional Software Express is free for one user and supports up to 30 users with the purchase of additional CALs. Here is a link to the website.
