BES service account security issue



In our environment we give the bes account full mailbox access to anyone with a blackberry.

the problem here is, all the important people have blackberries, and all support engineers have the password for this account.

by logging in to the webmail, anyone that's smart enough can have access to every mailbox of a bb user...

is there a way to prevent access without blocking BB functions?


kind regards.

Re: BES service account security issue

Any reason that you would grant full permissions?




Follow that KB and those are the ONLY permissions needed for the BES Admin account. Also, set up individual logins for users into BAS or to BB Manager. There isnt a reason for everyone to have access to that account. That account is used for installations and overarching permissions is all.
