RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express ExpertiseResearch in Motion recently released BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), featuring FREE server software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while providing the basic connectivity, security, and management capabilities of RIM BlackBerry BES Server such as over-the-air synchronization and remote access to files and applications.

BlackBerry BES Server Express can be installed on an Exchange or SBS server, which can handle as many as 75 clients, or on a dedicated BESX server to support as many as 2,000 users.
