I see all the inbox messages when accessing it with my computer but for some reason my phone isn't retreiving them. is there any way to repair that, to <i>push</i> the emails back onto my phone?
I tried "reconcile now" but nothing happens. maybe with desktop software?
Believe it or not, this is possible - but there's a trick to it. First, your email needs to be on an IMAP4 server... if you have a gmail account, with IMAP enabled, you can use that. Copy the emails you want re-sent to your blackberry to the inbox of the IMAP server, then select the emails and mark them as unread. Once you do this, the BIS will reconnect to the inbox shortly, and pick up the 'new' emails, and send them back to your berry.
I found this out the hard way ;) I had to sit through about 600 mails being sent to my berry this morning because of a server snafu.
