BlackBerry Setup using Office 365

HOWTO setup your BlackBerry phone using your Office 365 email?

My customer is using a Microsoft Online Business Productivity Online Services (BPOS), then transition to Office 365 (latest software as of March 2012). After the upgrade, the user can't read/send email. This is because the e-mail server is different from BPOS to Office 365.

Though setup using Office 365 is a lot easier because of a new autodiscover CNAME added to your company domain name host record.

If you are using Verizon service provider, go to this URL address: http://blackberry.net/go/vzw

Log-in using your username and password.
Delete your existing email configuration.
Setup an Email, select Add an existing email account (e.g. Yahoo, Google, Microsoft Exchange)
Enter your email address and password.

For example:
Email Address: johndoe@whaddya.com
Password: my password

Click Next to continue.
Completed.

The BlackBerry service will send you a message, coming from Activation Server with the email subject of "Email account information".

Here a sample message.
"Congratulation, you have successfully setup johndoe@whaddya.com with your BlackBerry device. You should begin receiving new messages in approximately 20 minutes.

You're good to go. Let me know if this help.

Frequent Account Lockout in Active Directory

I have a user in Windows Pro 7, and Windows Server 2003 environment that is frequently account locked out. I tried many different scenarios to resolve this account lockout issue, from resetting his password, changing a new password, remove and re-join the domain, rebooting the workstation and active directory servers.

I tried to use the command prompt utility to run "rundll32.exe keymgrdll, KRShowKeyMgr" (case sensitive) to delete the account in Windows 7 password cache, and still no luck.

Still searching for answer ... Let me know if you encounter a similar issue in Windows Pro 7 and Windows Server 2003.
