I'm looking for an alternative email app to run that will let me do personal emails.
My company gave me a new blackberry Bold 9700, replacing an 8820. Initially I set it up with my two personal email accounts using the standard blackberry personal email setup function. All was well, and I got my two new mailbox icons and could send/receive personal email, selecting which would be the "from" address when I sent messages.
Then my company got around to activating it on their BES and pushing through a security policy. After the requisite reboot, my two personal email folders disappeared, and composing emails gives no option to select the From address. Messages to the two personal email addresses are still received by the unit.
I tried plan B: the Gmail mobile App. But it gives the infamous "This application requires a working data connection" error. My data connection is fine; internet browsers work and google maps works fine. So they must have locked the Gmail app out specifically.
So what's plan C? I'm looking for an email app that can handle my gmail accounts and act much like the built in personal email system is supposed to work when not blocked by IT policy. Is there such an app? If not, my alternative is to buy my own cell phone and carry two devices...$$ and yuck!
Thanks in advance!
