If you work at an organization that uses a Microsoft Exchange or Microsoft Windows Small Business Server, then you can now acquire the BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) Express software for free.

A BES is a server that typically sits behind your organization's firewall and securely connects your BlackBerry to corporate email and data, as well as wirelessly synchronizes (shares) contacts, calendar, tasks, and memo items between your corporate computer and your BlackBerry.



BES allows your organization to gain all the benefits of a BlackBerry Server with no additional software costs. This saves thousands of dollars over the old pricing model by Research In Motion. You might want to let your IT group know about this great new deal if you use BlackBerry devices at your work place.

You should be able to support up to 75 BlackBerry users on the same box as your email server. You can support up to 2,000 users by putting the BES Express software on a separate server.

1. How to Get the BES Express software?

To acquire BES Express, go to www.blackberry.com, and follow these steps:

  1. Click the Software link at the top.

  2. Click BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express under Business Software in the left column to see a screen similar to the one shown in Figure 1. (You might be able to get straight to the page by typing this link: http://na.blackberry.com/eng/services/business/server/express/.)

  3. Then follow the on-screen steps to start the free download.

  4. Once the software is downloaded, the administrator uses a web-based console to set up and administer all users. See Figure 2.

2. Benefits of Being Connected to a BlackBerry Server

Individuals and small office BlackBerry users can get easy access to a BES. Just perform a web search for "hosted BES" or "hosted blackberry enterprise server" to locate a number of providers.

See the previous BES Express section for information on free BES software.


Connecting your BlackBerry to a BES (v4.0 and higher) will give you all of the following benefits.

2.1. Strong Encryption of Email within Your Organization

All email sent from your BlackBerry to other users in your organization will be fully encrypted with military-grade Triple-DES encryption provided by the server.

2.2. Full Two-Way Wireless Synchronization

Full two-way wireless updates between your BlackBerry and corporate desktop account for:

  • Address Book

  • Calendar

  • Task List

  • MemoPad (Notes)

This means you will be able to add new information or make changes to anything in your Address Book, Calendar, Task List, or MemoPad on your BlackBerry and in minutes it will appear on your desktop computer.

2.3. Securely Connect to Your Corporate Data

The BES server provides a highly secure connection to corporate data behind your firewall. This can provide productivity benefits to your organization by providing access to view and update important information in the field.

2.4. Push Applications Wirelessly to All Your BlackBerry Users

The BES administrator can create software configurations for groups of users and push them out wirelessly to any or all BlackBerry users. This saves on IT support costs.

2.5. Global Address List Lookup

Using GAL Lookup (Lookup for short), you can immediately look up anyone in your organization from your BlackBerry, even if there thousands of people at your organization.

2.6. Out-of-Office Auto Reply and Email Signature

Your Out-of-Office reply and Email Signatures are things you can adjust right from your BlackBerry if you are connected to a BlackBerry Server. Go to Messages (Email), press the Menu key, and select Email Settings to adjust these items.

2.7. Meeting Invitations

Just like on your desktop computer, you may check people's availability; you can invite attendees to meetings you schedule right on your BlackBerry. And, just like on your desktop, you may accept, decline, or tentatively accept meeting invitations you receive on your BlackBerry.

NOTE

Sending and responding to meeting invitations is a feature available even without having your BlackBerry tied to a BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
