    Question Desktop Redirector vs. Hosted BES

    Advertisement



    Hi All,

    Are there any advantages to using BES over using the Desktop Redirector? I have an "always on" Internet connection at home where I also run an SSH server and VPN, so constantly running the Desktop Redirector would not be a problem. My email hosting provider also offers BES for an extra $10/month. What I am wondering is if there are any advantages the hosted BES might offer me over the Desktop Redirector. If so, the extra $10 might be worth it. Thank you!

    I think it also allows you to do wireless sync of contacts/calendar

    ...and you're not relying on unmonitored desktop class hardware for your email delivery.

    There are a number of benefits to using BES. Refer to BlackberryFAQ.com for details.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    If your home system is on all the time why don't you just runn BES Express on it. It's free and gives you BES connected Blackberry features.

    Plus, Redirector can't send attachments. Another minus for redirector. If you have the option for a BES, I'd recommend it.
