Multiple Email Addresses

I have a BB Bold 9900 and presently have 3 email addresses for my various clients set up on it - 1 x Microsoft Exchange (controlled by client) and 2 x POP (1 x client managed and 1 x own email). I want to upgrade my own POP email account to Microsoft Exchange (Microsoft Office 365).  Is this possible or can BB only support one exchange email?


I need to keep the inboxes seperate.

Re: Multiple Email Addresses

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

A BB can have only one BES integration...but, from your words, I cannot tell if you actually have any BES yet. MS Exchange (which is the "back end" server, not the internet-facing component) can present to the Internet POP, IMAP, and OWA in addition to BES. So, if your current one is actually BES, then no you cannot have a second one. But, if your new one is OWA, you can have that, as well as have the second one as BES if the first is OWA.

Do keep in mind that only via BES do you get any of the full sync features OTA (e.g, email, calendar, contacts, tasks, notes)...all others are email, and only then some are calendar and contacts, but none that are non-BES have Tasks/Notes. So you may need to choose wisely which specific account you integrate as BES.

Good luck!
