| | BIS on VZW: Connected via IMAP, multiple copies of same msg?
Please Login to Remove!
I'm using BIS to get my mail via IMAP. I have 3 accounts set up this way all on different servers.
But I'm seeing a strange behavior with email on ONE of those accounts. The server happens to be Exchange--but my company only provides BES access to principles in the complany (they don't want to pay extra fees for anyone else). And anyone else who wants to connect via anything other than webmail or Outlook is directed to use IMAP.
Anyway the odd behavior.........
When a message arrives on the server, I see it on my BB--that's good. But if I open the message via Outlook thus causing the message's status to change to READ, my BB recieves a SECOND copy of the same message (even the received time is the same) and on the BB, it's marked as UNREAD. Then if I reply to the message using Outlook, my BB receives ANOTHER copy of the message--again with the same received time and marked as UNREAD (think this is because Exchange keeps track of whether or not the message has been replied to/forwareded.
This is ANNOYING.
Anyone have any ideas?
