Does RIM have any plans to allow BES customers to use open standards based email and groupware solutions instead of Exchange and Lotus? I want to hook it into a standard IMAP/SMTP server, CalDav, CardDAP, and LDAP. IMAP can send live push updates to BES too. How about a new version of BES that runs natively on Linux, Solaris, AIX, or BSD? Our company replaced our Exchange server with a Debian Linux solution, and I think many companies are doing the same.

Thank you. I was hoping that RIM would have built-in support for open standards rather than having to install a bundled solution. We're using standard mail server software such as exim and dovecot, not commercial bundled solutions. BES should be able to interface with any mail server without requiring a proprietary connector.
