    Question Quick Questions

    Advertisement



    Been reading a lot here lately. Just need to be clear on a few things.

    1.) With BIS we cannot reconcile email in, say, Outlook? Correct/Incorrect?

    2.) To get reconciliation working we need to have BES with Exchange?

    3.) Will a hosted BES and an internal Exchange server still allow reconiliation?

    Hopefully all my terms are used correctly here.
    Anyone confused? Let me know and I'll try to be more clear. Or, if the above questions were answered already, feel free to point me in the right direction.

    Thanks.

    Re: Quick Questions

    Hi, welcome to Pinstack. BES allows you to reconcile with your Outlook email/calendar/contacts, BIS you have sync manually and is not instant(BIS uses pop3). If you already have an Exchange server you are golden. If you are on a hosted BES you will be on the hosts' Exchange server.

    Here is some information about BES, hosted BES and BIS. Enjoy!

    If it is just for yourself, you might want to look into BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express.

    Re: Quick Questions

    Suppose a little background might help.
    What I have here is a client with 4 BB users. Two want to sync email in outlook really bad (read, unread, deleted). The other two as far as I know don't really care.

    Yes, they have Exchange. Which they are not using yet (not my choice - thiers).

    I am wondering if it would be more cost effective to use the hosted BES as opposed to buying the BES software.

    Now, if they did go the hosted BES way they wouldn't really need to worry about thier unused exchange (that sound right?).

    (bare with me here as I try and unconfuse myself.)

    Thanks for the replies, much apperciated.

    Not necessarily. To further complicate things by tossing in another option:

    Re: Quick Questions

    The less complicated the better.

    Anyone use this exchangemail / solosync? Sounds like, maybe, what I might be looking for. They can use thier exchange then this solosync. I just don't know who they are, where they're located.... Suppose I could look deeper into it but its morning and I'm not awake yet.
    I am what I am.
    Someone has to be.
