Data and applications that a device classifies for work use

A BlackBerry® device classifies the following data and applications for work use:
  • email messages and attachments that are sent to the BlackBerry device user's work email account and the email messages and attachments that the user sends from the work email account
  • draft email messages that the user creates using their work email account
  • calendar entries that the user creates using their work calendar
  • contacts that the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server synchronizes with the user's work email account
  • organizer data, such as tasks and memos
  • applications that you send to the device from a BlackBerry Enterprise Server, and that have the "Is access to the corporate data API allowed" application control policy rule set to Allow
  • files that the user accesses and downloads from your organization's network using the Files application
  • files on media cards that are created by applications that can access work data (except for media applications)

The BlackBerry device classifies email addresses in the user's contact list as work email addresses using the domains that you specify in the Work Domains IT policy rule.

After the device classifies data for work use, the user cannot reclassify the data for personal use. For example, if a user selects a work email account in the Send Using field of a draft email message and starts typing a message in the body, the user cannot change the selected work email account to a personal email account. However, the user can reclassify personal data as work data. For example, if the user selects a personal email account in the Send Using field of a draft email message, the user can change the selected personal email account to a work email account even after they start typing a message in the body of the email.
