RIM Touts New, “Free” BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) Express for SMBs

BlackBerry-maker RIM today unveiled a new, slimmed-down version of its BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) software for corporate mail deployments. The new software, BES Express, will be available for free, and it's meant to provide some of the core BlackBerry syncing and security functionality without many of the "advanced"--and costly--features currently found in the full BES.
