Important change for Cornell BlackBerry users

A major service change planned for March 2013 will affect about 200 individuals who use a BlackBerry to access their Cornell Exchange email and calendar. Those individuals have been notified and asked to take action before then.

The service that enables BlackBerry users to access their Cornell email and calendar — the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BES) –  will be discontinued by CIT in March 2013. No new users are being added as of September 10.

For affected individuals who want to continue accessing their Cornell email and calendar from a smartphone, the best choice is to plan to switch from using a BlackBerry to an ActiveSync smartphone (Android, iPhone, Windows Phone, etc.). CIT’s understanding is that most individuals will be eligible for a new phone within this time frame.

IMPORTANT: This change does not affect all BlackBerry users — only those who use their BlackBerry to connect to their Cornell email and calendar account.
