Thoughts, tips, tricks, and fixes for the IT person in you. I am an MCSE and support a wide variety of IT-related items at my job, including: Windows OS's, Exchange, Terminal Services, .NET, IIS, OS X, Microsoft Office, printers, phones, Linux, Adobe Creative Suites, and plenty of other hardware and software. Hopefully some of the solutions I find throughout the workday are useful to you as well

Specify folder redirection using Blackberry Enterprise Server
If you, or a user, need to have a folder other than the Inbox or Sent Items synchronized with their Blackberry device, you can actually control that from the Blackberry Enterprise Server itself. To do it:
1. Open BlackBerry Manager 2. Click on the server 3. Click on the user, then go to Service Access->Choose Folders 4. Change the option to use the folders you specify, then pick the folder(s) the user needs
5. Click OK.
That way you still have control over the synchronization from the administrative side, without ever having to even touch the actual Blackberry.
If you don't have a Blackberry Enterprise server to work with, this can also be done using the Desktop Redirector. For all the available options to synchronize other folders to your device, check out Blackberry's post here
