Im working for a company that runs a BESx server with v 5.0.1 (Bundle 5).
We are having an issue with users connecting/receiving their emails/contact/calendars when they are not on the company network.
The system has been working for about 5 months with only 1 or 2 errors that a reboot clicked back into life.
But I'm stumped as to why they can suddenly only receive this from within the network.
I.E If they are connected to a PC running a VPN it will download emails, if they are connecting to a wireless router with a VPN everything is fine, but any other network including mobile provider networks will not work.
Please if someone could shed a little bit of light on this problem I'd be most grateful.

Both, they can only receive emails when either the pc they are connected to or the wireless have been set up on the network.
Anyone using a connection outsite the network cant receive anything or even communicate with the BESx server.

Hi are there any IT policys that need to be set to enable access from un autherised networks?
Also is there a list of the ports that need to be opened for this the blackberry to talk to the server?

Start with this.
Have you made any perimiter or software firewall changes?
Can you flush your DNS server cache?
Are all your BES services running?
DBNS can be ignored.
What are they being logged on as?
Try stopping these services in this order:
Starting the services in this Order:
Let us know how you progress.

I've run through the list of steps you gave me but will not able to receive anything on our test blackberry.
Its just weird that if we connect to a wireless router or pc thats on the next work it runs fine.

Did someone change the dataplans?
It is a BESAdmin rite of passage to go through the gauntlet of correcting the right BES data plan with your carrier.
Under Manage Connections on the device (Most of OS 5), there's a services status which tells if connected to the data network.
For BES dataplan testing.

Hi, We have located the issue.
If you do not have BIS provisioned on your sim you cannot use BESx
We were lead to believe that all the Blackberrys customers has purchased through their "Blackberry sales advisor" would be set up with BIS.

There are some BBM/email only plans that will not work.
