Default Email Question

Please Login to Remove!

I asked this over in the curve section but after browsing around I feel it is better off here, I apologize for the re-post.

I am looking to switch to a curve, I didn't have BES when I had my 8700 so I just want to verify that this works before I make the switch. It is imperative that my outlook email folders sync, not just inbox but the folders inside of inbox ie: b2b sales, customer service, etc. Will all folders sync with BES on the curve, if not is there a 3rd party email app that will allow them to?

They'll sync if you configure them to sync.

Default Thinking about backing up message history first...

If you're moving from an old 8700 to new 8300 BlackBerry device, it would be well worth the effort of installing BlackBerry Desktop Manager and backing up your data (including message history) because folder message history won't be available on your new device unless you restore message history from your backup file.

If you do go down this path, it's a good idea to restore your messages data before you configure any messaging service books (ie BIS or BES configurations) so that you don't run the risk of over-writing recently received messages during the restore process.
