MDaemon Messaging Server - BlackBerry Connectivity

MDaemon Messaging Server has many ways for BlackBerry smartphone users to connect with the mail server.

BlackBerry 10

BlackBerry 10 devices do not connect to MDaemon's BES in the same way as the older BlackBerry devices and instead supports the creation of an ActiveSync account for native synchronization of email, calendar, contacts, tasks, and more.

BlackBerry 7 or under

MDaemon Messaging Server built-in BlackBerry smartphone management features provide small businesses with a quick and easy way to connect employees to their work email on BlackBerry smartphones. The management console in MDaemon makes it easy for the email administrator to control both email and BlackBerry smartphone functionality, and BlackBerry security and IT policies help ensure information is protected*.

MDaemon's BlackBerry IT Policies

MDaemon - BlackBerry Features - IT Policies

MDaemon Messaging Server provides the tools needed to configure custom IT policies to control various aspects of BlackBerry device behavior. IT policies enable administrators to customize security and device settings for their BlackBerry users, including password length and age, maximum logon attempts, encryption settings, and much more.

Mail administrators can choose one of MDaemon's pre-defined IT policies or create their own custom policies. These policies cover various aspects of BlackBerry device security, including, but not limited to:

  • Specifying whether a device password is required, and assigning a minimum password length.
  • Setting a maximum security timeout, causing the device to lock after a period of inactivity.
  • Setting a designated number of invalid password attempts before the device is erased.
  • Entering a maximum password history to prevent re-use of recently used passwords.
  • Forcing the device to be security locked when placed in its holster.
  • Setting content protection strength and external file system encryption levels.
