I have the need to test BES with the BlackBerry Device Simulator. The primary focus of this testing is email and mail retreival. I am seeing a strange problem and I'm not sure if it is normal or not.
When I connect my Simulator via USB, Enterprise Activation kicks off and my mail client is configured, I'm able to see the folders and mailbox name on the simulator. With the device still connected I am able to send myself an email and see it pop up in the Simulator.
I understand there are some limitations to the Simulator, but I would think that if I disconnected the Simulator and sent another email, the next time I connect the Simulator, it should sync that email to the phone. Is this correct?
Currently mail only make it to the Simulator if it is plugged in via USB while the message is sent. What am I missing here? Something just doesn't seem right with this. I need to have the ability to pull newly received messages when it connects via USB.
Solved! Go to Solution.

The simulator is not meant to act as a device replacement so this behaviour is likely expected, though the emails shoould arrive on a real device if it loses coverage then returns.

If this worked using BES 4.1.6 and does not work in BES 5.0, when using the same simulator then it would be a BES issue and not something that could be investigated on this board. You may be best to post the BES snippets you have and post them to the BES board to see if they can provide an idea of what is happening with the messages not being resent to the device.
