Multiple accounts with same email address

Hello,

 

  We are working on a system where we need a blackberry to access an email account, for example user@example.net - in this case its a POP account.  However we are also using a google apps for business account for calendaring where the login is user@example.net. We can't add two accounts, one email and one google with the same email address. Is there anyway around this?

Re: Multiple accounts with same email address

Shouldn't the one google account also serve your email and calendar in one account?

Unfortunately no. Google doesn't host the email, but the accounts use the same email address to login. Basically we've setup a google apps account so we can do shared calendaring.

Re: Multiple accounts with same email address

I don't know a workaround for that other than to use a different address for the calendar share.

Re: Multiple accounts with same email address

hi,

 

what you need :

  • email through the pop server
  • calendar through GApps
  • contacts through GApps


what you are trying:

  • email throughthe pop server
  • calendar through GApps over ActiveSync
  • contacts through GApps over ActiveSync


what is really happening :

  • email through the pop server
  • email through GApps over ActiveSync
  • calendar through GApps over ActiveSync
  • contacts through GApps over ActiveSync

and the first two are in conflict because of the same username (lame bug in my opinion, but whatever). In the hub you would have :

  • 1 POP account
  • 1 ActiveSync account

 

My proposition:

  • email through the pop server
  • calendar through GApps over CalDAV
  • contacts thtough GApps over CardDAV

in the hub you will have:

  • 1 POP account
  • 1 Advanced CalDAV account
  • 1 Advanced CardDAV account
