    BES and OWA

    Advertisement



    So my company refuses to install a BES server at work. So I'm stuck in a situation of not being able to do OTA sync with our exchange server. So my ideal solution is a BES server that is externally hosted from the company and takes my OWA username and password and syncs with exchane via OWA. 1. Is this possible can I buy my own server and set it up to sync via OWA?
    2. If it is are their companies offering a service like this?

    BIS already does OWA sync...just add your email and it'll do the rest. No need for a BES.

    Except with OWA sync, one cannot get folders other than Inbox, correct? And what about Calendar and Contacts?

    True - it only syncs mail in the inbox folder. I don't think you can just hook up a BES server to an Exchange server outside the company firewall. And you sure as hell can't have it use OWA...

    Yeah, my company won't let me get on the bes either so I just use owa. I have rules set up in out look at work, so all the emails I would need to read at home just goto my inbox, and everything else goes into other folders to read at work. Good luck!~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Re: BES and OWA

    OWA will only sync one-way. From device back to server. So if you are having BIS pull all your work email from your OWA, you'll get all emails on your Outlook account, and on your BB. Now if you are at work, and lets say you get 100 emails, and you read all of them from your PC and then move or delete them, you're still going to get those 100 emails on you device since it doesn't have two-way sync. That's a downside, upside is that at least you can get your work email.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I connect to my PC @ work to sync all my contact & calender events. But then again I do have admin access.

    It amazes me that there are many programs that sync w owa for mac,pc and wm but no one has written one yet for bb. We have ones for gcal .. Write one for owa and you will make millions
