Default IMAP + Newbie = Challenge!

Please Login to Remove!

I've been presented with a 8310 this morning by my boss and been instructed to get his e-mail to work on there.

OK, I am our sys admin, and have created our e-mail accounts - straightforward IMAP email accounts with the mail server being hosted by rackspace (i.e. not us)

At present this means e-mail is synched with Outlook and the Webmail where ever you choose to login, great, now he wants to add a blackberry to the mixture.

I should point out I have never even held a blackberry before this morning, let alone used one!

I asked on here before, in a theoretical sense, however, I cant seem to find the posts, or even my username (PreqinRob - hence why I have created PreqinRob2 - I'm imaginative see!)

The ideal situation is he has the blackberry in his pocket, and when a new e-mail comes in to his inbox he gets some kinda beep like a text message or something I assume.

Synchronisation is the key here, he needs to be able to access all of the imap emails which he currently has in the office and the two need to be synched.

Is this possible, if so, how do I go about configuring it on the blackberry?!!

(I don't like having to post newbie questions like this, but as I'm sure you can appreciate I've had this thrust on me with not much notice and a solution demanded quick :(( )

Should be simple. Find the icon for "Set up internet email" on the device, select it and follow the instructions. Your carrier should also have a location on their website from a desktop to allow you to do it as well. A typical configuration is just his email address and password. Once done, select the profiles icon on the device, select "normal", hit your menu key and then "edit". Select messages and you can adjust the type of alert you want. These things are quite easy. Play around with it and use the forum. I'm our company CEO and I have all management on Bberry with few issues and when we do more often than not I find the answers here..

Wirelessly posted (Titanium BlackBerry® 8320)

We have IMAP at work and I just integrated it on my carrier's BIS website and that was it. That's the quickest way to get the emails.

Good luck!
