Identify BlackBerry user's email with asp.net!

Hi,

 

We are developing a small web app for our corporate intranet.  We will have a login screen & we need to pre-populate the user's email address in the textbox field. Is there any way we can find out user's email address? any help is greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

Hi Omeya,

 

By default, the BlackBerry browser does not include the BlackBerry Smartphone's system email address in HTTP web requests.  However since you are operating in a corporate intranet, you can configure the MDS component of your BlackBerry Enterprise Server to include an email (and PIN) header in all outgoing requests from the browser.

 

How to - Add an email address and PIN to HTTP requests from the Mobile Data Service

 

Sincerely,

Adam

Re: Identify BlackBerry user's email with asp.net!

How do you find out email's address in ASP.Net?

I understand how to make email a part of the header via BES configuration but how to request it in .Net ?

All I see are examples for Java.

Many thanks!
