BlackBerry Enterprise Server

BlackBerry Express

RIM has published their press release announcing the latest version of BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express – now a free product, license free, and able to integrate right on the mail server, certified for VMWare, and compatible with Small Business Server! :)   Going to be an exciting ride these next few years.  Consumers are finally able to get real, stable security built into their devices.

BES 5.0 SP1

The new BES 5.0 SP1 now uses Exchange Web Services (EWS), thankfully!  Hopefully as Microsoft says, this is an end to the whole MAPI subsystem as we know it :)

We’ll have to wait and see, I have not yet updated our BES server to this Service Pack as I’m still working with the vendor trying to get some log dumps.  It’s coming soon though.
