View Full Version : POP Mail on the 8800 with BES?

Well, maybe I've got a problem or maybe I don't... It seems to me that I have read that you are only supposed to set up a pop account if you are using BIS and not BES.

I have a BES account with my work. I wanted to get access to my .mac account, and actually send messages from that account on my blackberry (instead of just having my messages forwarded to my exchange server account on the BES). I launched the personal email app on the 8800 and set up my .mac account and then added a mycingular.blackberry account.
Everything seems to be working fine, and mail is received in both additional mailboxes as well as my BES one. In fact, if I compose a new message, I get the option now of stating which account the message is sent from.

I'm confused... was I not supposed to do this because I'm on a BES and will I incur problems now in the future?:oops:

No, sounds like you're okay. There's no problem mixing BES and BIS accounts on one BB.

Yup -- BIS and BES can be used simultaneously.
