I am considering getting a 7290 and have a couple of questions
1. I use outlook at work and would probably use redirector to push my work email to my BB as they don't have BES. Can it also push appointments etc or do I need BES?
2. I know you can have upto 10 accounts coming into it but if I am using redirector for work can I also receive personel online POP mail wirelessly? What I'm wondering is can two different methods of pushing info work side by side?

How reliable is redirector?

You can, however you will need to leave your desktop or laptop connected to the network to achieve this. You IT Admin might have firewall settings not allowing redirections. Good luck

I use redirector for my Exchange mail and use the POP access for another email account and use direct forwarding for my GMail account -- so I'm using three of the four possible methods (BES being the fourth) for getting email onto my BB and it all works fine. You cannot "push" appointments, tasks, notes, and addresses without a BES though. You can sync via USB or bluetooth, but you can't sync over the airwaves.
