One of our readers who wishes to remain anonymous just let me know that BES 4.1.6 is now available to BlackBerry partners. The official name for the upcoming BES will be “BlackBerry Enterprise Server for Microsoft Exchange v4.1 Service Pack 6 bundle 7” The best part is that this release will bring HTML email to the table. No word on a release date but this looks promising!
Key features in the upcoming release:
- HTML Email Support
- IBM Lotus Domino Document Link Support
- Microsoft Office Communications Server (OCS) 2007
- IBM Lotus Sametime 8
- IBM Lotus Connections Client
- BlackBerry Enterprise Server for Microsoft Exchange Calendar Improvements
- BlackBerry Enterprise Server for Microsoft Exchange Hard Delete Enhancements
A precursor to that was when the BlackBerry Partners website www.BlackberryUniverse.com started having .net errors today. I guess they are having trouble with it.
