Q10 Sync with OLD BES (v5) server (Domino)

Hi all,


I searched through a lot of Web pages, tutorials, forums etc... but I could not find the definitive answer to this question :


We have a BES server used to sync a lot of (old) BB's (most of them under software version 5) with our Lotus Domino server, with we don't want to upgrade or replace.


For testing purposes we bought a Q10.


Is it possible to have the complete mail / contacts / calendar etc sync with our Domino via the BES we are currently using ?


It seems that syncing a Q10 is only possible by 1) having a BES 10 server and 2) use pieces of software to have it communicate correctly with Domino.


If would be really thankful if someone could lead me in the right direction...


Best regards,

Re: Q10 Sync with OLD BES (v5) server (Domino)

You are correct. Q10 devices cannot be synced with BES 5. You need BES 10.

BES 10 is free and you can freely trade up your licenses, so maybe worth to upgrade.
