    This is what I have been looking for. Forever.

    I have an Exchange Server at my office. It would cost about $3,000 to install and kit out a Blackberry Enterprise Server, which is insane for a small business.

    But now my Exchange Server can use an outsourced BES. It doesn't give total functionality but does gives the basics needed to make Blackberry a plausible choice without the insane cost of an in-house BES.

    This makes a Blackberry a plausible choice now. Before this, I was pretty much stuck with Windows Mobile in order to get full OTA sync. (PalmOS and Versamail 3.5 gave limited OTA sync capabilities).

    Doesn't sync notes or tasks - only contacts, calendar and mail. How is that different than versamail? I use Versamail for contacts and calendar and Chatter for IMAP push e-mail.

    Yup, no notes (same as WM Smartphone), no tasks. Some other stuff lacks as well.

    I think the difference is you're using a Blackberry (which some people seem to see as a good thing, but I'm not necessarily convinced), and you don't need to run 2 pieces of software (Versamail plus Chatter).

    It's a start. Blackberry has a high barrier to adoption in the form of its BES. As it lowers the cost of the BES more people will be moving that way. The market is changing.

    I believe blackberry gives away their BES for free for up to 10 users. They recommend that it be run on a seperate low end machine/server, but I have heard it works on the same existing Exchange server.

    Also, you could just run versamail without chatter and still get push e-mail and don't need two programs running. Do blackberry's allow for the syncing of messages in ANY outlook folder or just the inbox? When I went to an AT&T store, they couldn't tell me. Can a blackberry work exactly like Chatter when it comes to moving and viewing messages in different folders?
