Default Thinking of going from Treo 650 to Pearl - Important Email Question

Please Login to Remove!

I'm thinking of going from Treo 650 to Pearl and i like everything i read about the pearl, but it's going to come down to this issue:

On my Treo i have 3 email addresses setup (1 pop from work, and 2 gmail accounts, also pop). The treo gives me 3 screens, one for each email address and when i reply it replies from the address that it was sent to.

So my questions are:

1. If i set up the same 3 pop accounts on the pearl will they all go into the same inbox?

2. when i reply does it reply to the address sent or the default email address?

Thanks in advance for your help

1. yes and no
As long as your carrier is using the latest version of BIS, you will have separate mailboxes for each pop account. At the same time, there is a icon called messages that is a catch all, and if you are on a BES thats where those messages go as well as the BIS messages.

2. You can choose which email address you'd like to send from.

Well, I think I will take a stab at this, anyone feel free to correct me if I'm am wrong or mis-guided.

1) I choose to view them all in the same inbox. However, there are seperate icons on your menu that will allow you to view each box individually. As a side note, with the gmail you can set it up to push through your carrier's BIS. (At least you can with T-Mo, Can't speak for Cingular) Which I must say is very nice.


2) When composing a new email, it whichever email address you have as "Default" If you want to pick a different account to send, it is as easy as pushing one button and scrolling down to the appropriate account.

When replying to an email, I believe it will automatically send from the account that received the original.


Hope this was helpful.
