Ask your IT dept how to setup email on the iPhone.

thanks diesel for your response. I found out my office outlook system is BES from the office IT Dept. They told me that it wouldn't work because it was BES. I was seeing if anyone in Apple knew of a week around. If I have to buy a blackberry I would just die.

No. I don't believe there is a way. BES is proprietary to BB. Your organization would have to provide POP, IMAP, or Exchange Active Sync access to the mail system for you to use it on your iPhone.
It may be possible to configure the BES to provide this. It seems technically feasible, but I don't have a BES and have no way of confirming this.

Beau, BES is an intermediate server that stands between Exchange and Blackberry devices. It takes mail from Exchange and delivers it. Simply because your organization uses a BES server doesn't of necessity mean that they have disabled Exchange Active Sync. Some organizations will require that corporate devices be Blackberries because of perceived security advantages. If you have a personal device, your organization may not allow personal devices to connect to your mail system, or they may only allow personal Blackberry devices to connect. Does your organization allow ANY devices(either business owned or personally owned), other than Blackberries to receive enterprise messages contacts, calendar and tasks?

So should I ask my Office IT Department to enable Exchange Active Sync?
When I asked - I was told that some of the Directors have their Ipads up and running with it.
I guess I am just looking for further information so I sort through the corporate baloney and the fair dinkum IT reasoning.

Well, if someone in the organization has iPads setup with their email, then someone in IT provided them with the information necessary to set up the email accounts.

It may be that The directors are getting direct access to the Exchange server on the internal network only. That's entirely likely.
