We currently have a Zimbra Network Edition server. Our cell carrier is phasing out all of their windows mobile phones and we are being forced to look at Blackberry phones.
I understand the whole BES/Exchange setup and architecture.
If I do not want to run a BES server locally (small company and expense of maintaining another server) the carrier has offered to provide BES services via their shared BES server for a monthly fee. Since I have not use the Zimbra Mobile Connector before my question is:
Does the Zimbra Mobile Connector software go on the Zimbra server or the BES Server? If it loads on the Zimbra server can I use it with a third party BES server (the cell carriers BES server) or are there special modifications that have to happen to the BES server?
Second question. Has anyone here use AstraSync to bypass the BES server and were your experiences good or bad?
