BlackBerry Enterprise Server for IBM Lotus Domino

Apply the appropriate configuration updates and patches before the first 2007 Daylight Saving Time (DST) transition on March 11 2007. You do not have to simultaneously apply the updates and patches to BlackBerry® devices and the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server, but all patches should be rolled out before the transition date. You can apply the updates as soon as they are available.
