No, as the blackberry devices are addressed via pin.  One pin per device per email account.

Similarly, you can't have 2 blackberrys linked to the same email account (yes, there are people who request this - shared mailboxes for on-call people)

Possible workaround

You could have both accounts forward to a third mailbox that is the one linked to the BlackBerry.  We did something similar for our helpdesk who wanted 2 BlackBerrys linked to the same mailbox (hence the comment above)

I'm a big fan of using BIS in this case if you can ...

Re: 2 Blackberry Server accounts on 1 device

well you *can* have two BES email accounts on one device. You can rename the service books, but you wouldnt get the PIM sync, just the email functionality. With that in mind, it is much easier to use BIS if you can.

No.

 

*BUT*

 

You can have BIS checking Outlook Web Access for your second corperate account. (Or both for that matter, it's up to you).

 

Similarly you can have 2 Blackberrys checking one Exchange mailbox using BIS for OWA on one, or both.

Re: 2 Blackberry Server accounts on 1 device

The two exchange account request is a common one.  In my experience the best thing to do is foward from a contact in Exchange to a BIS account.  I tonly gives you the mail but that's the best you can expect.  Similarly Windows Mobile through Exchange Push is the same, although with Direct Push you can set up multiple devices to collect the same Exchange mailbox and everything syncs between all devices and the mailbox.  This is good for users who have shared mailboxes and it's a shame you can't do that with BlackBerry yet.

Re: 2 Blackberry Server accounts on 1 device

There are some ways to get more than one account working, sort of, but you will end up in a not supported config, and RIM will most likely tell you to get it sorted if you want any help.

 

Aside from that BIS works very well, including sync.  I think you can integrate 10 account if you want.
