4) How do you have your email set up? Did you set up each account individually in BIS or did you just forward to the BB address? I do not recommend ever using the carrier supplied email address, and I don't think very many on here will either. Several reasons, first you are open to tons of SPAM as it is unfiltered, second you do not control that address and it can change at anytime, third, the only way to see email on that account is on the BB, so if RIM or the carrier's BB network is down, you are outta luck, and lastly, you can't take it with you if/when you change carriers. As for the reply to address, log into your BIS account and edit each email account that you have there to add the reply to address which you wish to use for that account.
im pretty sure i did it through BIS (blackberry internet service?). i went to the "personal email setup" icon and set it up through there. my main email is an enterprise gmail account... i learned that i should download the mobile gmail program.
6) The BB checks email about every 15 minutes and pushes it to the device. If it finds mail, it will recheck in 2 minutes, pushing what it finds and check again in 2 minutes. If it finds nothing it reverts to the 15 minute cycle and starts over. Can't be changed. However, if you go to a BES or hosted BES, you would get it much faster. Some people use with gmail or Yahoo to get there mail faster, but I think you would have the same reply to issue that you have now.
i dont have a BES as i am the only one in my division right now with a BB. we are looking to at 3-5 more if this works out well for me. Again, as I mentioed about, I think the gmail mobile program will work best for me. ill have to give that a go
7) best way to transfer contacts would be to use Outlook if the Moto device supports it. Sync the Moto to Outlook and then sync the BB to Outlook.
dont think it does. i gotta find out what the software is that allows me to dump the contacts to a PC. then maybe i can save it as a CSV and then import them to outlook. then sync that to the BB. now i just need to figure out how to sync.
