How do you stop a Blackbery accessing OWA using BIS (Blackberry Internet Service)?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Since OWA is a web page, unless you block access to all web pages, essentially disabling BIS, they are going to be able to access OWA. It is not the same as synching with the exchange server which can be disabled by policy on the BES if you have one, or refusing to set up an account on the BES for a personal device. Internet service allows web pages, obviously, and OWA is a web page.

    I too am seeking an answer to this question. The flip side of this is, what are the addresses of the BIS servers? If we know these we could deny them access to OWA at a firewall. Anyone know the IPs of the all the potential BIS servers?
