Required software

I am currently running a Windows based Palm device and am exchanging through the server with "Activesync";  do I need to purchase additional software when switching to a Blackberry device...I am the only person on my business network who will be using a Blackberry device..or does a limited version come with the product?

Re: Required software

We are running server 2003; we use outlook for all emails.  Currently, my smartphone syncs with the server and not the desktop...and I need to sync the blackberry directly through the sever  (exchange server)

Re: Required software

If you dont mind leaving your computer on, you can use the redirector software. But for what you want, you are going to need a blackberry enterpise server
