Default 8310 and Office e-mail

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All,

I have just received a new 8310 and want to find out how I need to go about setting this up to receive my office e-mail.

What software or systems would we need to implement ( there are 3 of us using the 8310 )

Thanks

Chad

First of all, read the FAQ. That will will give you the basics and answer most of your questions.

The simplest way to get your mail would be to use BIS -Blackberry Internet Service. Your carrier should have given you the link to the website to set that up. It is similar to a POP3 setup and your mail will arrive on your BB approximately every 15 minutes. Make sure you have "Leave Mail on Server" checked in your email client on your PC however.

You can also use BES , Blackberry Enterprise Server, which is more expensive and more complicated to set up. And finally, you can use a hosted BES service.

It really depends on what you want and what you need. With BES or the hosted BES, you will get wireless sync with calendar and contacts as well as faster email delivery. If those are not things you really need, then BIS is the cheapest and you sync contacts and calendar info with a PIM application on your PC (i.e. Outlook).

Thanks xxx8211; I think the BES option sounds about the best as I donxxx8217;t want to forward my office e-mail to a 3rd party provider as a xxx8220;forwardxxx8221;. I canxxx8217;t seem to find the exact details of whatxxx8217;s needed to configure the BES under FAQxxx8217;S though.

thanks

Check the BES Admin Corner.

I don't see the issue with hosted BES. It is as secure as any other email system, probably more so since it is a BB. Many companies use it untilthey can afford the internal BES solution.

BIS also works great. I own my own company and use BIS exclusively. No issues whatsoever.

If you aren't a techie or don't have a couple servers sitting around, one for Exchange and the other for BES, then BIS or the hosted BES might be the better option.
