- BlackBerry® Enterprise Server 4.1 to 5.0 for Microsoft® Exchange
This article describes how to set a BlackBerry® smartphone user to a static mailbox agent ID.
To assign a BlackBerry smartphone user to a static mailbox agent on BlackBerry® Enterprise Server 4.1, complete the following steps:
- Open BlackBerry Manager.
- Select the All Users tab and right-click the BlackBerry smartphone user's account and select Edit Properties.
- In the Properties window, select the Advanced tab.
- Change Enable Static Mailbox Agent to True.
- Set Mailbox Agent ID to a value between 200 to 399.
- Click the Apply button to save the changes before closing the window.
To assign a BlackBerry smartphone user to a static mailbox agent ID in BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0, complete the following steps:
- Log into the BlackBerry Administration Service web console.
- Expand User under the BlackBerry Solution Management.
- Click Manage Users.
- Search for the specific BlackBerry smartphone user and click the user's display name.
- Click Component information in the user view.
- Click Edit user.
- Set Turn on static mailbox agent to Yes.
- Enter a number between 200 and 399 in the Mailbox agent ID field.
- Click Save all.
This procedure might be useful when BlackBerry smartphone user accounts are on a remote Microsoft® Exchange Server that has network latency issues. Assigning these BlackBerry smartphone users to a static agent can reduce the impact of network latency on BlackBerry smartphone user accounts on local Microsoft Exchange servers.
This is a temporary solution to consider while the network latency issues are addressed.
Note: If assigning multiple static agents, each one will initiate a new BlackBerryAgent.exe process and a new CalHelper.exe process on the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. These processes will use hardware resources and may cause performance issues on the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
