    Do BlackBerry devices support direct push of mail from an Exchange server?
    (EAS)?

    Why do pay big bucks to BlackBerry for email push when you can get mail
    directly using EAS?

    That's the question Microsoft asks every day! ;-)

    AFAIK, no, Blackberry devices only receive push email from a Blackberry
    server (BIS or BES).

    WinMobile devices, Palm, and the iPhone support direct push over EAS.

    because it works -

    the BB does not have the software to receive the other end of the Exchange
    Server push technology
    like the other Microsoft mobile enabled devices...
    so - no software, no push -

    And that Microsoft "push" software, both at the Exchange and the Windows
    mobile level
    has only been available recently,
    whereas the BB adjunct BES server has been around and working for years...

    Yes, it works well and unlike the MS version you have great control over
    all of the devices via the BES. Both of those are the reason why the BB
    is an enterprise class device.

    They didn't have as big a head start as you think. RIM sold email only
    Blackberries sine 1999, but the Blackberry phone has only been with us
    since 2002. Microsoft has offered EAS on WinMobile since 2003. Before
    they offered Direct Push in WM5 devices in 2005, they offered push prior to
    that by using a "silent" SMS trigger system to initiate email retrieval
    from the device. (The device received a special text message that didn't
    display on the device to trigger a sync. Silent SMS is also how GSM phones
    trigger the voicemail indicator.) The downside of that system was that you
    really needed both a data plan and a text messaging plan (or you paid for a
    lot of SMS messages- one for every email that hit your Exchange inbox!)

    Direct push eliminated the SMS trigger requirement and made EAS push more
    palatable and economical, since you no longer needed a texting plan.

    That has changed in recent years. Exchange 2007 and WM6 offers Blackberry-
    style control- remote administration, remote wipe, password policy
    controls, etc.
