If you're targeting BES versions 5.0.3 and higher then the simple solution would be to use BWS instead of BAA. BWS is mail platform agnostic, so the same calls will work regardless of the BES being targeted.

Thanks for the quick reply. We will give this a try. Can you tell me anything about the authentication methods supported in the BlackBerry cloud solution? I know the BAA and BWS API is exposed but it looks like it uses a different authentication model (Perhaps Windows Live)? Are there any articles or samples for this?

So we switched to BWS and we were able to make substantial progress. THANK YOU SO MUCH. However we did run into an interesting issue connecting to one of the servers.

Glad to hear BWS is working out for you
This error doesn't appear to be anything specific to BWS. What line in your code results in this error? What is the URL being used?
