Default Redirect

Please Login to Remove!

I just installed redirect and am trying to figure out how to use it. I configured outlook to receive my hotmail messages. I wrote an e-mail on my phone, and the status is set to 'message status pending', now im not sure how this works, but does the redirect take e-mails written on the pearl and then sends them via outlook and then copy the inbox to the pearl or am i completely wrong.

also on the windows start bar it says that its disabled, and nothing is being coppy to or from my pearl. I did get an e-mail saying this T'his message is used to carry data between the BlackBerry Redirector and BlackBerry Handheld. Please do not delete, move or respond to this message - it will be processed by the BlackBerry Redirector.'

any help would be much appreciated,

-thanks

Why are you using redirector instead of BIS?

Redirector is only certified to work with Outlook and Exchange e-mail; that is probably the root of your problems.

You are using the wrong e-mail push method. Please check out Main Page - BlackBerryFAQ for information on the various ways to receive e-mail. You are looking for the BlackBerry Internet Service, or BIS

Yes, it is. And Rogers is a bit steep.

no, kidding. So from what i can tell redirector just collects e-mails from outlook and sends it to your blackberry.....through usb i guess but do you need BIS for this, and is there a way to receive and send e-mails with out BIS

Do as NJ suggests....Bottom line is no data plan, no email.
