- I'm very curious as to how BES actually works. I have only had limited success in finding out anything.
If I attempt to register my blackberry with an enterprise server, using an email address that I already have and making up a password, I receive an email to that address from an email@example.com containing what looks like a load of encrypted data. I assume that the BES would pick this out of the user's exchange inbox.
What happens next? What is this email that I received, some kind of initialization? What would the BES do with this email, what would it reply to it, and who would it reply to?
Is the process: Sender->Sender's SMTP->Receipient's SMTP->Recipient's Exchange Account->BES->RIM->Carrier->Recipient's Handheld ?
Surely every email to every blackberry device doesn't flow through RIM but how else can software on a server communicate with carrier's and handhelds?
Thanks for reading!
