    "Hidden" Blackberry Signature (big brother tactic)

    Advertisement



    Just curious,
    Are there any other BES Admin's out there that have placed a "hidden" signature out there to determine whether or not someone was replying or sending a message from their Blackberry?

    Without keeping the default "This message was sent from a wireless handheld.", feature. The signature option is open to modify to your liking, however...we have it configured to place a "." (without the quotes) at the very end of a message. Sneaky?

    We were asked in the past if there was a way to know when a message was sent from a Blackberry or their desk so this was our solution without the employee knowing.

    That's a cool idea...we don't have a need for it here, but very creative of you.

    I would have thought there would be something in the BES logs that gave an indication of direction of the reconciliation of an outgoing message.

    But then again, I'm not that knowledge on BES

    Basically our employees can do what they want with their device, as long as they don't use it to call people. Strictly data.

    But I stand by my opinion that it took a creative mind to come up with the idea!!

    Besides, if anyone is doing something on our systems that they shouldn't be doing, that someone would most likely be.....me ;(

    You can check the BES logs but this was meant to know on the fly plus not everyone has access to our BES. You just look at their message and look for the "." . It comes in handy when you have people at remote sites.

    But that won't apply to the BES, only the BIS.
