2 Email Systems.....

[ Edited ]

Hi, everyone - New to blackBerry so I suspect this is a bit of a dumb question


but I have a slightly odd situation.


I have 1 email account with my emplyers - they do run blackberrys....

I have 1 email account with the company that I am contracted out to - they dont run blackberrys....


I have to keep both emails up to date, and sync all the calandars etc...


I have been told by the guys in an O2 shop that a Blackberry Bold will allow me to merge the calandars together and collect emails from both accounts (Push from one, and Ill have to pull from the other, but thats ok)


Are they actually correct - the bold is not the standard issue, but my boss will get one if I can actaully figur it out - needles to say our IT guys and next to usless about this..


Thanks for your help

Re: 2 Email Systems.....

It is all "push" email with RIM/BlackBerry. No pull.


But it sounds like you will have one account your corporate BES account, and the other on a BIS account?


That will work. All emails will be mixed together in the main messages folder, unless you get the Empower BES Email Inbox (google it) as a third party application to remove your BES mail to its own seperate folder.


AND, that will work on other BlackBerrys as well... the Curve (83xx), etc.

Re: 2 Email Systems.....

But you can still look in your BIS email box to show that mail only (eg Google), and you can set up a quick search to limit your main mailbox to one service only.  See my tips at www.stinsonddog.com.

Re: 2 Email Systems.....

Thanks for that another couple of questions for you -

Will BIS work with exchange server?? & will it merge the 2 calandars (that would be VERY handy if it did..)
