Default Adding BIS account to BES

Please Login to Remove!

I currently have a BES account with themessagecenter and it works but I was hoping to add my gmail account to my 8800. I'm using China Mobile and they don't offer BIS support yet and I can't seem to figure out how to add another account on my phone. Am I missing something or do you need to have both BES and BIS to get gmail to work with a BES account?

Are there any other options other than the gmail app or forwarding all of the email through my BES account?

BES only works with your corporate mail server. If the carrier does not offer BIS then you will have to continue to forward the mail through your corporate mail. There's no way around it.
