Blackberry ActiveSync w/ OWA Calendar
Hi guys, first post here, so please be gentle! :0
Our school has, today bought 7 Blackberries (I would have preferred them to have gone with iPhones due to knowing they work for the purpose they were bought) and we are having some real issues, I'm getting mail working and downloading (Not currently syncing with previous emails though) through our OWA provided by EMBC, I have also tried to get the calendar working to no avail, sycnhing it with the same details does nothing, no Outlook mailbox settings for the mailbox seem to affect the calendar functions at all.
is there any known issue with syncing outlook calendars in realtime over 3g/wireless with Blackberries, (blackberry Bold, if thats helps).
Any help would be appreciated!

You need a Blackberry Enterprise Server or 3rd Party Apps like this to Sync with Exchange Accounts.
You can only get email via the Blackberry Outlook Web Access Portal.
Blackberries belong in Pies, iPhone or Android is the way to go!

Thanks for confirming that, as I had thought!
Typical that they don't bother consulting us IT Techs before they order
Hopefully this news will make them realise an iPhone while has a "reputation" as a gadget in too many minds, its an awesome piece of kit! I've been running my work calendars/email for months on it, and shown all of the aforementioned!
