Default BES question

Please Login to Remove!

my 8100 is not "linked" with my company's BES, but i'm retreieving it thru our company's internet webmail access site, but emails only comes in like every 15-20 min. Is there anyway i can get it in a faster loop? or do i have to bug our blackberry admin for this??

Thanks

You can try forwarding to your blackberry.net email address. However, if you can get on the BES i'd do that.

You are using BIS to retrieve your email, so the short and long of it is NO, you cannot change the 15-20min frequency.

Not having this 15-20minute delay is an advantage to using BES over BIS.

As mentioned above, only email sent to your BIS email account directly (username@<carrier>.blackberry.net) is delivered to your handheld immediately without BES.

Two exceptions to this rule currently exist: GMail and Yahoo accounts. Apparently these account types have "special" interaction with RIM servers and your email is delivered more promptly if you use one of these account providers. I have not tested to verify this, but it has been reported by users that this is the case.

Your provider has to be on BIS 2.0 before it will run any better than 15 minutes with Gmail or Yahoo. Also, why would it cost an extra $30 a month? You obviously have a data plan and a BES license is only a one time deal. Unless your company is using a hosted BES.

It is faster to use "rules" in outlook to redirect mail to your tmob BIS address.

Did you also get the 29.99 BES service from your provider?

ok.... i have been running bes for years... but a recall like 3 or so years ago. You could setup a blackberry desktop manager on a desktop that has access to your mailbox. The desktop manager would take the email from your mailbox(exchange) send through desktop manager over the web to rim servers... it was like a watered down version of bes..... Does this not exist anymore?

Isn't bis..... blackberry internet server, or services?

I think it was called the blackberry desktop redirector. Came with desktop manager.... So if you were cheap and didn't want to buy bes.. you could setup a seperate pc or virtual machine running the desktop manager and redirector and just leaved that lock with no keyboard and mouse. As long as the network cable wasn't pulled and no one turned off the machine, you had your email.

Am i wrong?

Nope, you're not wrong, but when I asked about it I was told it was a bit out of date and tended to be flakey. But it is a valid third option to getting outlook mail without BES.

the only time it was flaky for my customers was when the pc was off.

In the small to medium biz market companies are cheap.... many use desktops and scream at there secretaries to reboot their pc's...

but ideally, download a free copy of Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 or vmware and load a virtual machine... have it run on there in the background. You can give it 128megs of ram if you like, it only has one function.... to forward email! You just need outlook loaded on the vm.
