Re: BES/SBE/BPS 4.x upgrade options to BES Express 5.0

Does anyone have experience with BESX and Exchange 2003 and 2010 coexisting? How does BESX behave, what are the best practices, etc.  The more info you can provide the better.  THANKS!

Re: BES/SBE/BPS 4.x upgrade options to BES Express 5.0

First of all, thank you very much for your time!

 

Well, that's all nice and dandy, but how do I treat the fact that RIM officially says that 2003 and 2010 are NOT supported?

 

We're planning on keeping 2003 around for a while because of some old client versions we run; and you're saying they'll coexist just fine.  Do you have any experience with that?
