How is email pushed over wifi? Does the Blackberry server send a 'hidden' sms message prompting the device to connect to the mail server?
Specifically, I am interested in receiving emails in places (e.g. houses in the middle of nowhere) where there's a wifi connection but no operator signal. Or, alternatively, in buying an unlocked Blackberry, use a foreign sim (with no data plan) when on holiday abroad, and receive emails when connected to a wifi (e.g. a hotel's wireless network). Would these two things be possible, as far as you know?
As for deletion, the scenario would be that I delete an email from my Blackberry before opening it on a PC. In that case, would the Blackberry delete it from the mail server, too? My mail server supports imap and pop but is not an Exchange server.
As for folders, I am interested in a way to store on my mail server the emails I send from the Blackberry. On my Nokia I do this with Profimail, which connects to my mailbox via Imap idle. If I understand correctly, you don't sync folders with your email client, but do you save the emails you send from the Blackberry anywhere other than on the Blackberry itself?
Thank you all for your insights!
