BES 4.0 & Office 2007...

Morning / Afternoon all -


Is there anyway possible for my users to be able to view Office 2007 documents from their BlackBerry's if we're still on BES 4.0? Seems our upgrade is going to be delayed...


I've seen the option where I can add extensions (see attached), and I found the path in the registry to add extensions, too. But, after adding docx, dotx, xlsx, pptx, and ppsx, for testing, and restarting the BES Attachment service, it wouldn't work, i.e. I couldn't read/view Office 2007 documents on my BlackBerry...


Attachment Server


Any other ideas, besides upgrading to BES 4.1 with SP4?

Hey naviwilliams,


Robot Sad Unfortunately no, to be able to support Office 2007 Open XML file formats you must be running BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.1.4 to 4.1.6 or BlackBerry Professional Software.
