Default Calendar Invites: New Option for "Send Meeting Request Using:" choose your email svc

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know when this showed up? I just noticed on my 8320 that when I "invite attendee" to a calendar event that I now get this option to choose which message system to use. Do others have this option on the 8300/8310's?

It has been there since BIS 2.3 upgrade....


OVERVIEW:

On April 29th, an enhancement to BlackBerry Internet Service® (BIS) will be released. BIS is an easy-to-use wireless email solution included with the purchase of BlackBerry Personal data rate plans. BIS offers direct wireless access to work and personal Internet email accounts such as Earthlink, Comcast, Yahoo! and virtually any other POP3 or IMAP account.

BIS v2.3 offers subscribers several feature improvements:

Added Support for Yahoo! Mail and Gmail

Subscribers using a Yahoo!® Mail account will now have two-way synchronization of deletes to and from the Yahoo! Mail inbox, as well as two-way, virtual real-time synchronization of message status (read/unread). That means that when subscribers delete a message from their Yahoo! mail account, the message is also deleted on their BlackBerry (and vice-versa). And when they read a Yahoo! mail message on their BlackBerry, the message is immediately marked xxx8216;readxxx8217; in their Yahoo! mail account. Therexxx8217;s no need to manage messages twice. Also, subscribers using a Gmail® account are no longer required to enable POP (Post Office Protocol) before integrating their Gmail account with their BlackBerry service. And subscribers now experience virtual real-time (instead of poll-based) delivery of Gmail messages.

Delivery Receipts and Read Receipts

Subscribers will have the ability to know when an email message has been successfully delivered and read to another user who is using BlackBerry. If the Sender and Recipients have enabled this Delivery Status Notification,a "D" will appear over the sent message checkmark in the message list of the Sender when the message has been successfully delivered to all or some of the Recipients and an "R" will appear over the sent message checkmark in the message list of the Sender when the message has been successfully read by all or by some of the Recipients. The Sender can open this sent message to view which Recipients have received the message. Users can enable this feature in the Messages application by selecting Options/Email Settings and changing the status of Delivery Receipts to "Yes" and selecting Options/Email Settings and changing the status of Confirm Read to "Yes". Message recipients will then have the option to configure (Send Read Receipts) to: (a) always send read confirmations, (b) never send read confirmations, or (c) always be prompted for each message received. This feature requires BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.2 or higher.

Auto-forwarding

Subscribers can have a copy of email messages that are sent to their mycingular.blackberry.net email address automatically forwarded to another third-party Internet mail account. This feature is ideal when subscribers need easy access to mail sent to their BlackBerry email address (which is only viewable from the device) from a desktop browser as well. Auto-forwarding can be set for all incoming messages, or just messages with attachments.

Easy-viewing slideshow format

With BlackBerry Internet Service, subscribers can view popular attachment formats on the move, including JPEG, BMP, TIFF, RTF, Microsoft® Word, Excel and PowerPoint®, Corel WordPerfect and Adobe PDF. And now, PowerPoint presentations and PDFs can be viewed in a convenient slideshow format. This feature enhancement requires BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.2 or higher.

Attachment uploading

Subscribers can attach files up to 3MB in size stored on their BlackBerry (i.e., pictures saved to the saved to the expandable memory card) to email or MMS messages.2 This BIS v2.3 service feature is only available on BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.2

Voicemail attachment playback

Subscribers who get voicemail messages from work or home sent as email attachments (mp3 and WAV) can listen to these messages virtually anywhere, which makes it even easier to stay up-to-speed and responsive throughout the day.3 File size supported up to 500 KB.

Expanded Language Support

Subscribers can use their BlackBerry in the language theyxxx8217;re most comfortable with. For the user interface, BlackBerry Internet Service now supports: English, French, Italian, German, Greek, Spanish, Chinese (simplified), Chinese (traditional), Czech, Hungarian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese (European), Portuguese (Brazilian), Russian and Turkish. And for email transport, BlackBerry Internet Service supports: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Afrikaans, Arabic, Catalan, Chinese (simplified), Chinese (traditional), Czech, Danish, Dutch, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese (Brazilian), Portuguese (European), Russian, Swedish and Turkish. Plus, language selection can now be made right from the log-in screen, so subscribers can proceed with the set-up process in the language of their choice.

Wireless Meeting Requests

Subscribers can now save even more time each day by sending, receiving, accepting and declining wireless meeting requests between BlackBerrys.4 Requires BlackBerry Handheld Software version 4.1 or higher.

Wireless Address Book Attachments

Now, subscribers can open electronic contact attachments (vCard format) using their BlackBerry. They can also add these contact details directly to their BlackBerry Address Book and even attach an address from their BlackBerry Address Book to any email they send.

No, it's newer than that. It's not on my Pearl. It was included in an OS upgrade somewhere. I'm assuming in the upgrade from 4.2.1 to 4.2.2.

I had it on my Pearl as well. I wasnt on BES either. It was always there after the upgrade. You was able to send the calendar request to whomeever in your address book and had a email addy. This was in the BIS 2.3

What you're referring to was the ability to send the requests via BIS at all. Prior to 2.3 you couldn't send them from BIS. What I'm seeing now is the ability to choose which one you want to send via. That is new.

Wirelessly posted (BlackBerry 8700g: BlackBerry8320/4.2.2 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/100)

I can't get the invite attendee option to show up any longer. Oh well, I guess I will have to delete the service books and resend.

that was there... I have just fired up my old pearl with the latest software and the option is there. I have 4 email accounts. A course I cant send it because my SIM is not in it, but it was always there after the BIS 2.3 upgrade. I mean i dont doubt you, but you seem to be doubting me.

So, you have the line, "send meeting request using" when you invite an attendee on your pearl???





My Pearl (with all the latest software and service books) looks like this:

Nope, this is not a BIS 2.3 deal, I don't have it on either of three BBs I just checked (8800, 8100 and 8700, all on 4.2.1 or lower), on ATT and TMo.

These don't have the "send using" option.

I do have the "Send invite" option, and that option appeared with the advent of BIS 2.3. Anyone can go back to the threads on this board when 2.3 appeared (about early summer) and see the discussion... the "send using" was not present.

It came later (and I wish I knew when it would be hitting me).

See??? I knew I wasn't seeing things. This is what I was talking about in my "invite attendees" post!!!

http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...ult-email.html

My question is, why doesn't it automatically send from my default email and why can't I change it? It chooses my least-used and least significant email address. Actually, the one time I was able to change it, it wouldn't allow it to send from my default! I got a big red X in my inbox.

Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks!

I just posted in your thread. I've also noticed that when I receive a calendar invite that I get the same line saying "received using message service:" as well.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that this may have been included in the .180 upgrade on the 8320?? I receive a lot of calendar invites and this line in the received invites is new to me. If anyone can shed more light, please do.

Weird... I do and I dont know why... I have a selection for 4 different email addy.... FYI I didnt notice from the start of 2.3 but maybe 3 months ago, but I had different software upgrades so.... I still think it related to 2.3 but a different software upgrade.. I mean you cant upgrade the software with options and the BIS servers not be updated as well....

I just reactivated my Pearl. 4.2.1.107, BIS/BES and sent new service books. I have no option for "Send meeting request using."

Can you post a screenshot of it on your Pearl?
