Holy Crap people... we are talking 2 completeley different languages here.....
I can't believe what I am just realizing... Timc is NOT on a BES!!!
He said in the beginning and we assumed all along that he was Enterprise Activated on a BES... Well, he didn't actually say the words "Enterprise Activated". His company may
have a BES but he isn't using it I don't think.
Remember the description of his account setup on the 28th? Notice how he describes [BHOW[/b]
he set up email on his BB...

) via a BIS POP or IMAP account!!!!!!!!!! AAAAAAHHHHHHHH
I remember thinking for a second that day... "Why did he say anything about OWA (Outlook Web Access)????
This is why he doesn't have filters... He isn't on a BES!!!
TIMC, did you EVER do an Enterprise Activation of your BlackBerry??
Do you even have a BES provisioned cellular account for your BlackBerry via your carrier??
Consumer cellular accounts, which is what you were (essentially) prior to your company moving to exchange are, provisioned on what is called a BIS (BlackBerry Internet Service) plan. Business users (that need to connect to a BES) have to have their account changed from BIS only to a BES (BlackBerry Enterprise Server) plan. Some/most BES plans also allow BIS configuration as well so you can have your pop accounts AND
your Corporate mail.
Looking at your messages, you clearly had at least a
BIS provisioned account prior to all of the switch at your company as you clearly stated in your initial post that they switched from POP3. It is unclear now if you switched and went through all that we have assumed all along.
I am so at a loss now. Quite frustrated too... for us and you.
Tim, I know the BES stuff is new to you and maybe it was just a bunch of misunderstandings but we are WAY back to step n-1 now...
Before I completely go off the reservation, please confirm all that I have said and asked above so we can know if we are reading from the same manual.
Ohh, and if my assumptions above ARE correct... DO NOT PLUG YOUR BB BACK INTO YOUR PC WITH BB DESKTOP MANAGER RUNNING. That will all have to be reinstalled differently... and not until you change the provisioning on your BB account... and not until you do a complete backup and WIPE of your device prior to starting over.
Let us know. Anyone else see what I am seeing??
