Attention IT Administrators: BlackBerry users experiencing issues with sending email (seeing red Xs in the message list) may be impacted by the Send As Issue. Learn more about Send As Permission, including steps to resolve.

Impact of DST 2007 Changes on BlackBerry users

When the DST dates change in March 2007, BlackBerry® devices will not update their clocks for the affected time zones if no patches for impacted BlackBerry software and third party software are applied. As a result, your BlackBerry device might not display correct time zone information for certain time periods during the year. Get more information on how the DST 2007 update will impact BlackBerry users.
