Does anyone know or has anyone used MySQL with Blackberry Enterprise Server for Exchange instead of Microsoft's SQL Server? I want to know if SQL Server is absolutely required or if other database solutions are possible.

BES can use MSDE 2000 (free) for up to 500 users.

BES can not be installed onto 2008 yet.

Thanks, knottyrope that's definitely a good possibility.
The reason I asked about mysql specifically was that I'm going to be moving to SBS 2008 which will be a 64-bit version so I'm not sure if MSDE 2000 will work correctly in that environment. Of course having something optimized for 64-bit would be of interest but as long as MSDE 2000 will run well in a 64-bit system that sounds very functional.
mysql is not supported in any capacity with any BES / BPS product. You can use a database on a 64-bit WS2008, or use BES on an x64 version of WS2003.
