Shawn we use Blackberry's with our Exchange environment.


There are many options depending on how much of a budget you got. If you
want to go the full route with wireless synchronization and forwarding
of emails to your devices my recommendation is to go with Black Berry
Enterprise server (BES). It sits on a separate box apart from your
exchange server and works as a redirector of your emails. This server
pushes out emails as they come in to your exchange server. BES also
allows for your devices to synchronize their contacts, calendar
appointments, etc, wirelessly without having to physically hardwire into
outlook. Any changes made on the device synch with the desktop and vice
versa (you can also customize these settings). 

 

If you want to go the cheap route then you can just purchase wireless
handheld devices from your wireless provider (cingular, tmobile,
verizon, etc.) and then just do email forwarding from your exchange
server to the handhelds email address. The downside to this workaround
is that you won't get full fledged functionality.

 

Look it up, Blackberry enterprise server is made by a company called
Research in motion (RIM). http://www.blackberry.com
<http://www.blackberry.com/>  http://www.rim.com <http://www.rim.com/>  

 

You can find all your info on there and they have whitepapers that walk
you through installations and best practices. Hope this helps.

Do you have the enterprise server installed?  My suggestion would really
be to contact their support. Support is free for the first year.
