One email account for two phones

Using the Exchange 07 BIS email account is it possible to have the email account push the messages to two different BB phones? I believe BIS only uses one PIN at one time. Does anyone know any different?

Re: One email account for two phones

Hello,

Via BIS, the function is akin to any other POP email client. You can have any number of POP clients accessing the same email account. For a BB, each BB must have a BIS account of it's own, but then each can be configured to access the same email account. The tricky part of such a configuration is determining which one is the master and being careful about deletions and such.

Good luck!
