Does anyone know if it is possible to install BES10 on a hosted server that is not part of any domain. Then create the smtp profile etc from information from the people hosting my email?
I have tried this but cannot login to management console or UDS. I can login to BDS and setup a mail profile and send an activation email but thats as far as I can get. I think there is IIS issues as am getting the following error " an error occured. The site might be temporaily unavailable. Click OK to attempt to return to the login page "

First of all, you haven't explained what email platform your hosted provider is using?
You need to understand that BES 10 needs to access AD to obtain user info and also user account authentication when connecting via ActiveSync.
Ideally your BES 10 should be domain connected to avoid over complicating the setup, not to mention opening the ports on the firewall to connect to the various servers...
Why do you want to do it the hard way? Won't your provider setup a BES 10 for you in their cloud or whatever way they are connected ?

The email is inhouse so we will be connecting via OWA. The BES10 is the server being hosted on 2008 R2.
Have you tried to install a standalone BES10 on a server in a work group? I gurantee the BDS will login fine but the UDS will fail.

I've never tried it to be honest nor is it something I would see as supported. In all my time dealing with BES, I've always seen the BES connected in the same domain as the mail server, or at least having a connection to AD.
Also, why are you guys using OWA to connect to Exchange? No Outlook client/MAPI?
