Re: BES compatibility


You can use the Q10 standalone like any Smartphone without BES odr BIS.

To sync your companys Email on Exchange you have to use Exchange Active Sync. This has to be enabled and configured.


The other option is to install a new BES10 Server in addition to your BES5 Server to manage BB OS10 Devices.

Re: BES compatibility

BES 10 can be installed on your BES 5 SP4 server so not much more resources will be needed. You might need more RAM on the VM or box though.
