BlackBerry for the first time
Few days ago I received a copy of mail about possibility of run BlackBerry solution at University of Silesia. I conclude that I should familiarize with this subject and software, which can serve this kind of services. Assume that our mail servers does not work under control of any followed systems: MS Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino, Novell GroupWise, then for today we can not run BES (BlackBerry Enterprise Server) and we must to run BIS (BlackBerry Internet Server) service, which synchronize mail using standard protocols as IMAP, POP3 and SMTP. I received at once link to Funambol software, which has those capacities. For those who are not familiar with BlackBerry I placed here (marketing) description from http://uk.blackberry.com/ page:
