BlackBerry BES Server Express SupportResearch in Motion recently released BlackBerry BES Express, featuring NO COST server software and CALs while delivering the basic connectivity, protection, and administration functions of RIM BlackBerry BES Server including wireless synchronization and remote access to files and programs. And the cost savings don't end at free server software and CAL licenses. You also get the ability to select the BIS wireless data plan rather than the BES data carrier plan, saving you up to $20 a month for each of your BlackBerry users!

BlackBerry BES Server Express can be deployed directly on an Exchange or SBS server, recommended for as many as 75 clients, or on a stand-alone server to support up to 2,000 clients. BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is a great alternative for smaller organizations who until now could not financially justify integrating employees' BlackBerry smartphones to their corporate network.

The Express version of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not offer high availability features, monitoring, database mirroring, or desktop phone integration and reduces the number of supported IT polices from 450 to 35. Also, BIS data plan clients will have to perform an initial direct-attached enterprise activation to connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. After that they will have the complete BlackBerry wireless email and organizer data experience which includes calendar, address books, do lists, and notes. Those using the BES wireless data carrier plan can still enterprise activate their devices wirelessly.
