New features in BlackBerry Internet Service 2.5

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Doc ID : KB15252
Last Modified : 2008-06-06
Document Type : What Is



Print this page

Environment
BlackBerry® Device Software 4.5
BlackBerry® Internet Service 2.5
Note: BlackBerry Internet Service 2.5 is available through Asia Pacific service providers.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Details
This article outlines the main changes to BlackBerry Internet Service 2.5.

Attachment downloading in the native file format

BlackBerry Internet Service subscribers can save, edit, upload, and transfer attachments in their native file formats. For a list of supported native file format attachments, see KB15253. BlackBerry Internet Service 2.5 subscribers can edit native file format attachments using embedded or third-party applications. This feature requires BlackBerry Device Software 4.5.

HTML email message viewing

Subscribers can view HTML email messages on their BlackBerry smartphones, including the following file types:

Graphics and photos, including the following:
Embedded images and tables
External images
Active hyperlinks
Paragraph formatting, including the following:
Numbering
Bulleted lists
Justification
Indentation
Font formatting, including the following:
Font type
Color
Size
Effects (italics, bold)
This feature requires BlackBerry Device Software 4.5. For instructions on configuring HTML email message viewing and automatic downloading of embedded images and tables, see KB15254.

Note: For security reasons, externally linked images must be manually retrieved using the menu key.

Important: HTML content cannot be created when forwarding, replying to, or composing a new email message.

Support for Windows Live™ Hotmail® integration

Integrating a Windows Live Hotmail email account results in the following:

Real-time delivery of email messages replaces the standard 15 minute polling interval
No restrictions; all Windows Live Hotmail accounts can be integrated
Note: Some wireless service providers do not support integration with Windows Live Hotmail. Contact your wireless service provider for information on availability.

Windows Live Hotmail email accounts integrated using BlackBerry Internet Service 2.4 or earlier must be deleted and then re-integrated to turn on the enhanced features. For instructions on removing and integrating email accounts to a BlackBerry Internet Service account, see KB04258 and KB03087, respectively

Integrated Windows Live Hotmail email accounts must be revalidated every 90 days to continue receiving email messages to the BlackBerry smartphone. Revalidation is required by Windows Live Hotmail for security purposes. Prior to the end of the 90-day window, a message is sent to the BlackBerry smartphone advising you to revalidate.

No word out on when RIM activates BIS 2.5 for The Americas.
One thing's for sure, it'll be activated here in APAC tonight.

Now my question is... what would be the default message size for an HTML email by then? B/c with what we have right now, it's about 2kb.

Will there be a notification sent or a visible change in BIS so we will know when it was updated?

Question, how will this effect BBConnect users? For a long time now my M600i has been getting emails with the html code but not actually showing the images and such. Very annoying to have to SCROLL to see the real meat of the message. Will this effect that? i.e. make them actually show as HTML emails not code. Or is the software on my device just lame? HAHA (i'm thinking I'll get a pearl)
