Linux mail server, Blackberry Enterprise Server, GMV Atlas - few questions
One of our staff has got a Blackberry, thinking that it'd work 'out of the box' with our internal email system. It can browse the webmail interface fine, but of course it can't receive emails through the push email system on the unit.
I looked into setting up BES for hime (as it's free for 0-20 users). Of course, this requires an Exchange server, which we don't have. However, I found GMV Atlas which interfaces BES and Linux mail servers (we use Exim in a custom LEA provided configuration).
Unfortunately, Atlas does not work where IMAP uses SSL/TLS, it wants to connect on port 143 which is disabled.
I don't really want to give up on this one until I've exhausted my patience, as BES could be very handy for SLT in the future. Not massively keen on going for Exchange purely due to costs, but it's obviously the primary solution. Can anyone suggest a way of getting this to work? Either the required setting change on the email server (Slackware) to enable it to talk on 143 (not too worried about plaintext, as there's no off site mail access other than webmail, and all staff are set up with SSL anyway), or perhaps auto-forwarding the emails on to another server which I can connect to.
I'm not hugely familiar with the configuration for IMAP/Exim so I'm not sure if it's just a config file change, or a recompile job :(
