This will also affect Goodlink users.



In line with Microsoft's Security Update Advisor monthly patch update
(http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/advance.mspx), they
have plans on releasing a patch on May 9, 2006 for Exchange 2000 Server
and Exchange Server 2003. If you are planning on installing this update,
it's important to note that this update affects user mailbox permissions
by revoking the 'Send As' permission in Exchange which has an impact on
third party products such as BlackBerry Enterprise Server for Microsoft
Exchange. Once applied, this update will prevent users on BlackBerry
Enterprise Server from sending email from a BlackBerry or
BlackBerry-enabled device. 

Recommended Resolution
RIM, in conjunction with Microsoft, has provided configuration settings
that must be implemented to enable BlackBerry users to continue sending
messages. Microsoft is recommending modifying permissions in Active
Directory as outlined in the following public-facing Microsoft KBA:

BlackBerry Technical Support Knowledge Base Article with general
information about this change can be found here:

Before applying this Microsoft Software Update, RIM recommends that
Administrators review these two Knowledge Base articles and take any
necessary steps appropriate for their environment. Please contact
help@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx if additional support is required for this as it
applies to BlackBerry Enterprise Server.




This project is so important, we can't let things that are more
important interfere with it.
