I'm not real happy with the notifylink on-demand setup for our ten blackberries. Is there an alternative to having an all-in-one solution? Our license is about to expire at the end of the year.

Forget Blackberry and buy the Nokia E71 with ActiveSync setup, optional in combination with IMAP. The extra costs for just Blackberry are not worth it (in my opinion).

Nope - you're pretty much stuck with Notifylink if you want to use Blackberries properly.

We've set up "bodged" Blackberry setups for users with BIS service - just create a push email box for the device with the service provider, and set up forwards from the user's account to the Blackberry push email. No sync of stuff sent from the Blackberry, but it does work if you no longer want to pay for Notifylink.

Not quite sure why you don't want an "all-in-one" solution, since that's kinda the ideal point to reach with email/PIM/smartphone management. Personally I'm not fond of NL, but others seem to swear by it.

[edit] Just thought of something - if you have certain BBs (can't remember which ones off hand, but the new Curve is one) you can set up IMAP accounts. No push, but it checks about every 15 minutes (via your provider's central BIS server).

We have the "bodged" setup for our BBs now and I get complaints all the time from our users about why they have to delete from both their inbox on the device and in their outlook. Additionally, they want the contacts (Public if possible), calendar, and tasks.

Can I ask why you are not happy with Notifylink on Demand? What is the approx. cost for 10 devices?

I hate the fact you have to go through a third-party provider to make blackberries work properly. Where you can sync with other phones using the built-in Activesync on the Kerio mailserver. I think blackberries are a powerful devices. Not to mention Activesync phones are battery hogs.

Astrasync may be an option, but I haven't got it to work with Kerio yet.
It adds ActiveSync to your Blackberry (needs OS 4.2 or newer.)
There's a free trial: http://www.astrasync.com/
It's designed to work with Exchange 2007, but maybe Kerio/Mailsite can work it out.

I set up a client with Astrasync and it works pretty well, although it has some limitations. It will only sync the Inbox for one thing.

NotifySync syncs all email folders and Contacts, Calendars and tasks. It removes the hosted server component that was previously for blackberries to sync. ATM Kerio's activesync cfg needs to be configured to allow unsupported devices to connect for it to work properly. However our testing has been very good so far.
