OK - it didn't last long, I've done some reading of the FAQs & I'm a bit confused about email services. Verizon offers two different services for receiving email, at the low you can use BIS or for $15 more, you can have full integration with your office Exchange Server, if that's what you use. My company does use an exchange server but I decided to spend a little less money and just use BIS.
From my understanding (Verizon rep so take that w/ a grain of salt), the BIS allows connection to multiple POP email services but won't connect to an Outlook account (through an Exchange server). So what I did is add a couple of POP email accounts, plus I set up a @vzn.blackberry.net email as well. Things work fine so what I did is set up a rule in outlook to forward my email to the blackberry.net account. Works fine. But for the heck of it, I set up my exchange/outlook email account and to my surprise, it works well.
So with this in mind, I think that's how I'll set things up - I need email from my office account. Any issues with this that I should be aware of? If I got the higher level of service, what other services or features would I benefit from?
