Configuring a messaging server
A test environment for the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server requires a messaging server unless you are testing the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server for MDS Applications. The BlackBerry® Enterprise Server for Microsoft® Exchange, the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server for IBM® Lotus® Domino®, and the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server for Novell® GroupWise® require a messaging server to send email messages and other messages.
The messaging server in a test environment is typically not connected to the Internet, so you must configure the messaging server to send messages within the test environment only.
You should make sure that you configure a load generator for use with the messaging server. The load generator creates the messages that the BlackBerry Enterprise Server sends.
You can configure the messaging server in your test environment using the same method that you would use to configure a messaging server of the same version that is associated with a BlackBerry Enterprise Server in your organization.
