In February I wrote:

BES Express is unlimited, comes with fewer IT Policies (35 instead of 450), and supports Exchange 2003, 2007, 2010 and Small Business Server 2003 and 2008. It does not support clients for Instant Messaging, Mobile Voice or the Lotus portfolio.

No support for Domino so far. But next month, RIM will make the same server available, also free of charge, for Domino servers. This has been announced by RIM today at an IBM event in Stuttgart. I am going to wait until its available for download before I run it on Heise, and for now, you have to take my word for it.

Any mention of support for the latest Domino Servers? (e.g. 8.5x,1,2)?

No, there was no mention. It just did not come up.

Volker Weber, 2010-10-21

These should be the supported Domino server versions with BES Express for Domino:
Lotus Domino 7.0.4
Lotus Domino 8.0.2
Lotus Domino 8.5.1

Installation of BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express was pain-free - after filling in my details on BlackBerry’s website, I received an email with a link to the 600MB download as well as a licence key.
We already had the full BlackBerry Enterprise Server installed, so we were interested to see what the Express edition had to offer given that it doesn’t require a dedicated server. Pleasingly, it provides many of the basic administrative features for supporting and managing end users’ Blackberries. The web-based interface provides uncluttered access to a range of features and is fairly self explanatory – we found it really easy to get the hang of it.

Anyone see any official announcement on this or hear any additional information regarding availability?

Rob Koppe, 2010-11-04

Yes, it's available now.
