It's very nice to talk to you again,
Here at Netnovation we are proudly using ZCS Professional Licences also with Zimbra Mobile, and the SmartPhone synchronization support is excellent. But I'm concern about the Zimbra BlackBerry support method, tell you my story:
My cellphone service providers here in Venezuela (Digitel GSM and Movistar Telefonica), offer me a pretty good Hosted BES service, and here comes the issue: 'on their servers'.
When I browse to Zimbra - Products: BES Download (Beta) Registration Form it says "To use the Zimbra Mobile Connector for BlackBerry you must be running BlackBerry Professional or BES for Exchange...", but also says "Are you an existing Blackberry Enterprise Server customer?" (with Hosted BES option).
Then, it says "Zimbra Collaboration Suite Network Edition customers and trial users can register for the download and install the module for free during the Beta period. You can continue to use the Connector for BlackBerry for free past the Beta period if you have a Zimbra Mobile license., and allow me to download the ZimbraBESConnector-5.0.0_GA_1862_5.0.2428.msi file.
So, here comes my doubd:
Do I must own and administrate a BlackBerry Professional or BES for Exchange Server?
What if I have a Hosted BES service with my cellphone provider, who won't install the .msi file on 'their' servers for me?
We're not interested into buy a BES Server, but into use the synchronization support for BlackBerrys on the Hosted BES Service that we already have with Digitel GSM or Movistar Telefonica.
Any help or advice?
