BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express Available NOW!!!

BESX-download I know many small companies were waiting on the edge of their seats for the release of BES Express. Terry let us know that RIM has released BES Express on their website for anybody to download. This is definitely the time to kick the tires a bit and see if BES Express is the solution for you. I think consumers will care less but companies that were considering supporting BES would jump all over the ability to use a regular BIS carrier plan and no license fees!

Download it now at this link

We answered some of the major questions about BES Express in a previous article if you are looking for some specifics.

  1. As I am the only one in our company using our BPS, I am going to dump it for BESX as soon as I get the download link (already placed my order online). Now I have to sit and wait…the anticipation is killing me!

  2. wait…so I cannot get BES Express for myself if I don’t have a corporate e-mail address other than my gmail or yahoo email??

    • Well…it is BlackBerry “Enterprise” Server Express. One of the requirements for this is a Microsoft Exchange server, so a free web-based e-mail provider doesn’t do you much good if you want BESX :/

  3. Last night I uninstalled BPS (BESX refuses to install if it finds BPS or BES), wiped my handheld (because of the differing IT Policy, this appears to be a required step if you are already on a BES/BPS), installed BES Express, and activated my handheld. Everything looks fine, but the only new feature (well, new to BPS users) I have tried thus far is HTML email, which works great.

    I am new to BES 5.0, so the web administration and web desktop manager are new to me, but they seem pretty straightforward. What I am having trouble with is where I make the IT Policy changes needed for FaceBook contact/calendar integration (Disable Organizer Data Access for Social Networking Applications). Anyone know if this is possible in BES Express? I’m guessing this falls under Scenario 3 or 4 here: http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=KB18427

  4. As a free download, BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is definitely worth a try for SMBs wanting to enable the mobile workforce.
    Once we’d installed it, creating users and managing their access levels was quick and easy – particularly as you can roll out settings for entire groups in one go, rather than having to do so on a one by one basis. This meant we were quickly up and running with BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express.
    Having not used a similar product before, it’s difficult to compare BlackBerry’s offering with other products on the market. But I would recommend it to all small companies with a BlackBerry enabled workforce. It’s quick and easy to install, and gives you immediate control over business- and employee- owned BlackBerrys.
