Configure Exchange on Blackberry Devices

Blackberry users: A personally owned Blackberry must be associated with an Enterprise data package in order for the device to sync with OSU's Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES). The device must then be entered into OSU's BES. To set up a Blackberry on the BES, please contact OSU Telecom at 3-3465. All other smartphones will need an unlimited data package for constant email communication.

Open your Blackberry device and please find your settings application in your main dashboard. 
 Once in your system settings, please find and select Accounts.
 Select Advanced at the bottom of the "Add Account" screen.
 In the Advanced Setup screen, please select Microsoft Exchange? ActiveSync.

Once on the Advanced Add Account page, please fill out the following:


Domain: CN or FS_MAIL

Username: Commonly your username is the first seven letters of your last name, and one or more letters of your first name. (For example, Benny Beaver would be beaverb)

Email: In the email address field, please enter your address.

Password: For your password, please enter your full email password here.

Server address: When it asks for a server address, please use .

Port: The port for the server is 443.

SSL: Please turn SSL On.

VPN?: VPN does not need to be turned on.

Push: Enable Push; when you receive emails it will send an email to your phone immediately.

Snyc Interval and Timeframe: If you want, set the Sync Interval and Timefram to whatever you like. We recommend setting Sync Interval to Manual, and Sync Timeframe to 7 days.  

After done with this page, please press Next in the upper right corner.

After pressing Next, it should put you on a new page for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync. Turn on sync for email, contacts, calendar, tasks and memos. It may take a few minutes to fully sync all your messages to your inbox.

And that's it! You've have succesfully synced your exchange account with your blackberry device. If you have any questions or concerns about your account information, please feel free to contact your department's DCA? or the OSU Computer Helpdesk at 541-737-3474.
