Default Stupid email question

Please Login to Remove!

I've just recently changed from BB use via a BES to service from Verizon, and I have a question about syncing to Outlook.

I am receiving email from a few accounts just fine into my BB. However, in addition, I would like to sync with a specific folder on my desktop's Outlook.

Also, once I sync, I would like to keep those messages around forever, even tho I only keep the rest of my BB email for two weeks.

Is there an add-in or third party app that can easily help me out?

TIA!

1 - I'm assuming that you want to sync with Outlook wirelessly and there is currently no final release of any software for doing this yet, however there is one in Beta testing. A search would of the forum will help you out to get info on that programs progress.

2 - Until #1 is possible #2 will not.

3 - not sure if that's possible; only because I've explored that due to lack of necessity. Perhaps another member may be better informed in this area.

Well, I'd be happy to sync via USB ... this is a set of email messages that I use as a reference set for responding to questions. They don't change very often, I'd just like to have them on my bb to reference or forward.

So, I was hoping for a way to sync one folder on my local Outlook, wired would be fine. I could swear I used to do this long ago, but I cannot find anything in Desktop Manager that permits it.

Thanks anyway!

Can't you just email it to yourself and save it...

BB's do not sync email. They push and reconcile. If you have email already in Outlook you'll have to re-send it. Reconciliation will not push old email to your BB which is a key difference between reconciliation and sync.

If it's reference material I highly recommend storing it in Notes (which does have bidirectional sync) or something.
