Blackberry Email & Calendar Sync with Sun Communications Suite

I just finished installing Sun Calendar Server to a customer's existing Sun Messaging Server infrastructure over the weekend in the Philippines.

Some of their directors use Blackberry. With the newly installed Calendar Server, they hope to sync their Blackberry devices.

I told them there are 2 approaches.

Approach 1: Blackberry sync with Outlook via USB

a. Install Sun Java System Connector for Microsoft Outlook
b. Sync Mail & Calendar from Sun Comms Suite 6u2 (Mail & Calendar) with Outlook
c. Sync Blackberry with Outlook via USB

Supported OS
Runs on Microsoft Windows 2000 (SP3 or higher), Windows XP (SP1 or higher), Windows 2003 Terminal Server, and Windows Vista

Supported Outlook
Supports Microsoft Outlook 2003 and 2007

Approach 2: Blackberry sync over-the-air

a. Purchase NotifyLink Enterprise Server
b. Install and Configure to connect to Sun Comms Suite 6u2 (Mail & Calendar)
c. Blackberry sync with NotifyLink over-the-air

Note: If users only want to "sync" email with Sun Messaging Server with Outlook, no connector is required. It works out-of-the-box via POP or IMAP protocol.
