link Blackberry BES 5 with Exchange 2010 SP1← Back

Part of the transition from Exchange 2003 to 2010 has involved getting our BES 5 server to work with the new server.

You first need to meet the following pre-requisites:

  • Exchange 2010 with mininum of Update Rollup 1
  • Blackberry BES 5 SP1 MR1
  • Microsoft CDO 1.2.1 installed on your BES server

Configure and test standard Outlook/OWA access to your Exchange environment and make sure general email is working as it should, then in the Exchange 2010 shell run the following commands:

Get-MailboxDatabase | Add-ADPermission -User “BESAdmin” `
-AccessRights ExtendedRight -ExtendedRights Receive-As, ms-Exch-Store-Admin

Add-RoleGroupMember “View-Only Organization Management” -Member “BESAdmin”

Add-ADPermission -InheritedObjectType User -InheritanceType Descendents `
-ExtendedRights Send-As -User “BESAdmin” -Identity “DC=<your>,DC=<domain>”

You should then be able to move a mailbox from Exchange 2003 to your Exchange 2010 mailbox server and send/receive email from your Blackberry.

You should then also perform the following tasks:

New-ThrottlingPolicy BESPolicy
Set-ThrottlingPolicy -RCAMaxConcurrency $null -identity BESPolicy
Set-Mailbox “BESAdmin” -ThrottlingPolicy BESPolicy

Increase the maximum number of Address Book connections
Configure a management role for Exchange Web Services
