Default IMAP email questions

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I apologize if this is the incorrect forum for this, but it seems to be the closest match...

I have 2 questions...

We're a small business that runs all Macs and we don't need all the bells and whistles that an Exchange Server offers, but we would like to move our POP3 email over to an IMAP system so we're always in synch. We all do a lot of traveling and to have access to all our messages when we're away from our computers is a huge advantage.

My first question is, does the Blackberry fully support IMAP email, (that is, with all the folders and such), and secondly, can anyone recommend any good companies that offer IMAP email. We're currently on GoDaddy POP3 mail.

Thanks so much.

Tim

The blackberry BIS does support IMAP email. It will one-way sync the inbox (meaning messages read/deleted on the BB will be marked on the IMAP server). There is also support for sent/deleted messages. Meaning if you send an email from the BB (using the IMAP account) a copy is placed in the Sent folder on the IMAP server. Same for deleted mail (saved in Deleted/Trash folder).

That's about it for IMAP support.
