    Important: Microsoft Software Update for May 9, 2006 and Impact on BlackBerry Enterprise Server Users

    Originally posted: May 8, 2006

    In line with Microsoft's Security Update Advisor monthly patch update
    (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sec.../advance.mspx), they have plans on releasing a patch on
    May 9, 2006 for Exchange 2000 Server and Exchange Server 2003.

    If you are planning on installing this update,
    it's important to note that this update affects user mailbox permissions by revoking the 'Send As' permission in
    Exchange which has an impact on third party products such as BlackBerry Enterprise Server for Microsoft
    Exchange. Once applied, this update will prevent users on BlackBerry Enterprise Server from sending email from
    a BlackBerry or BlackBerry-enabled device.

    Recommended Resolution
    RIM, in conjunction with Microsoft, has provided configuration settings that must be implemented to enable
    BlackBerry users to continue sending messages. Microsoft is recommending modifying permissions in Active
    Directory as outlined in the following public-facing Microsoft KBA:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/912918
    BlackBerry Technical Support Knowledge Base Article KB – 04707 with general information about this change
    can be found here:
    http://www.blackberry.com/knowledgec...8064/Support_-
    _User_cannot_send_messages_because_the_Send_As_per mission_has_been_revoked.html?nodeid=1166052
    Before applying this Microsoft Software Update, RIM recommends that Administrators review these two
    Knowledge Base articles and take any necessary steps appropriate for their environment. Please contact
    help@blackberry.net if additional support is required for this as it applies to BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

    Also note that certain accounts are proteced by Active Directory , they are listed here.

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/907434/

    So if you enable the SEND TO rights and are a member of any of these groups, in a couple of minutes it will be removed.

    In my case I removed myself from Admin group (Also security tips recommend you have a separate account for this anyhow) for it to work. Also it will take like 5-10 minutes for the changes to go in effect... since it doesnt happen asap.

    So, i'm am wondering if the tool that RIM released, fixes this, or should I worry about this too. I am performing all of this, this weekend, so I need to have my stuff together.

    If you follow the instructions from my earlier posts, this issue is address by the AddSendAs.vbs script.
