ya, the problem is the folder does not appear by name of "desktop" , instead it appears by full email id, which we want to change

Mail server is outlook 2010 sp2
BES version is 1.0.3 (We are using on premise Bas with 0365 platform)

pls help

Problem is that is set for all users on O365 and to change it for just your domain means changing a lot on the backend.

I don't see it happening any time soon

after hell lot of hard work, i found this article.

kinda scared of implementing this as it involves tweaking databases.

KB15003-How to create a separate icon on the BlackBerry smartphone for only BlackBerry Enterprise Server messages

thoughts?

For me (If I understand it correct what you want to do), it does not look that this will help you, because, this only applies to Blackberry Handhelds Version <5.
You could try to remove the icon, but I dont think this will change the devices behaviour to show a separate Inbox and the Desktop icon it the device software is 5 or later. Even it the icon is removed, there will be no "Desktop" icon, but only the Inbox.

Your problem seems to be that the "Desktop" icon is called "someone@domain.com", which is normal for any BIS mailbox, and as it seems to me (no experience with O365) normal for Office 365.

The only thing I could think of is:
All users have to manually hide the "Desktop/someone@domain.com" icon on the home screen
Go into the the inbox, open options, inbox settings.
Remove the checkmarks for all items but the "Desktop"

Then, the "inbox" will only contain corporate messages.

thanks for ur help and sorry for delay

it is defnly possible with office365 as we were previoulsy using it, only difference being our BB servers were hosted on MS cloud.

now we have the BB servers on prem but exchange still continue hosted services.

Any idea to resolve this? (y)

I have never done it on BES, only with desktop manager

you don't modify the column, you modify the data in that column
