Setting Up BIS with Windows Small Business Server

March 18, 2009

If you are using BIS and have Small Business Exchange but have no web access to email then here is a way to get emails to your device.

First, create a BlackBerry email address using the online control panel that your mobile network provides. The good thing about a BB email address is that emails are received within seconds.

Then follow the instructions below to get emails forwarded to that email address.

STEP 1 ADD A CONTACT
 
Goto Start
          All Programs
          Administrative Tools
          Active Directory Users & Computers
 
From the tool bar select  Action
                                           New
                                           Contact
 
Enter Contact Name ( just enter the name as per exchange and add blackberry on the end ie johnsmithblackberry)
     Click Next
     Next to “email box” click modify
     Select smtp address then click ok
     Enter Blackberry email address and click apply then ok
     Click Next
     Click Finish
 
STEP 2 Forward exchange emails to blackberry address
 
On Desktop Select Server Management
                      Select Users
                      Double click the user whose emails you want to

foward to the blackberry
                      Once Users properties opens select the exchange general tab
                      Select delivery options
                      Halfway down you should see forwarding address
                      Click on Forward To
                      Then on Modify
                      Enter  first 3 letters from contact name from step 1 then click check names
                      The contact name should appear
                      Select the contact name and ok
                      Tick the “Deliver messages to both forwarding address and mailbox” tick box
                      Click ok
                      Click Apply
                       Click ok
 
Job done!
