Default BES and personal email one one device?

Please Login to Remove!

I currently use tmobile to relay the access my work and personal email. We however now have a BES server at work so I want to use that to access the work email but will I still be able to use access my personal email via the tmobile setup? If not is there another way to do this?

Thanks,
-Chris

Yes.

Gmail works great. If you search around, you should find info on setting it up alongside the BES setup

Thank you

My personal email uses imap via ssl (I run the server so I can make changes if needed for any reason)

Check with your BES administrator.
They many not allow this. Once an IT policy is pushed to your device from the BES, it may disable your personal e-mail (among other things) entirely.

I was told that they do not push any restrictions onto my phone, although I will not know for sure until I go forward and enable the BES on my phone.

OK... but just remember... once the device is on the BES, you basically don't own it or control it anymore.
Your BES admin can do anything they want to the device, without your knowledge.
They may decide to flip a switch one day and lock you down... and there won't be anything you can do about it.

Maybe one day they decide to turn your camera off. Or your ability to send TXT messages, or PIN messages.
Who knows.

If this is your personal device... I would think long and hard about putting it on a corporate BES.

Thank you, that is good to know and makes me thing. Are there any other options? My new corp email does not offer imap or pop and is only accessible via outlook and outlook like applications.

As I said before my personal email is the exact opposite and runs courier imap and postfix.

Thanks,
-Chris

Can you access your corporate e-mail using Outlook Web Access? If so, you can probably set that up through your current BIS account.

Other than that... no other options.

I can access mail via the outlook webmail, I currently have tmobile relay my mail so that I can access it via my phone.

So I can either take my chances and hope they dont restrict me to all hell

Or

Have I seen something before about services that provide syncing between an email account and a blackberry? something like tmobile does for me now? I havent checked but I am just assuming that tmobiles setup connects only to imap or pop3 and will not work with outlook.

Your T-Mobile BIS will support up to 10 different e-mail accounts.
Just sign into your current BIS account and set up your work e-mail address. It supports Outlook Web Access.

I'm a little confused about what you refer to as "tmobile relay" mail. I've never heard of that before.
If you have a Blackberry, with a Blackberry data plan... then you should be using BIS.
T-Mobile - Blackberry Internet E-mail

sorry about that, I guess I see it like that since tmobile pulls down my email and then relays it to my phone. I will use the proper wording form here on in.

Good to hear about tmobile, I wont be able to take advantage of the calender syncing and such this way though will I?

It seems like it would be so easy to just use my works corp server, but risking them locking down my phone does not seem worth it.

Thanks again for all of your help.
