On the same 2008 R2 server installed are an Exchange 2010 SP1 and a BESX. Installation of BESX completed without any problems and by following the instructions provided by RIM's site.

Here's what I would do to troubleshoot

1) Ensure you've made the appropriate firewall exceptions for TCP port 3101 that allow for traffic from your BESX server to go to RIM's servers and make sure your NAT rules are correct

2) Double check your SPAM filter to make sure emails from aren't being blocked. If they are then make sure you whitelist *

3) Try specifying the activation password instead of creating an activation e-mail. I've heard a few people that have issues with that functionality.
