Well since I made it so easy
, let me hit you with another question. I have a rather detailed email config. Bear with me. I have an Exchange account that I use BES with (not on the Bold yet
). I use several computers to access my Exchange account using my Outlook client. I also use my Outlook clients to check several pop accounts and use rules to direct them into various folders in my Exchange account (as opposed to a directing them to a pst folder). In order to receive email from those pop accounts on my Blackberry AND be able to respond using the appropriate pop email address I set up each of those accounts using BIS and set it to BCC any message I send to the same account. Now I have a decent "emulation" of BES for my pop accounts too. Follow me so far
Only small issue is that since I often have my computer on and automatically retrieving email, on very rare occasions my Outlook client might grab an email from a pop account before it can be pushed to my BB. In which case it directs it to an Exchange folder using a rule, my BB does not go off, and I do not see the message on the BB (though I could find it if I searched through my folders on my BB).
So (are you sighing yet
), the way I addressed that was to set up my Outlook clients to leave copies of messages on the server for a day before deleting them, that way my BB ALWAYS gets the message even if my Outlook client gets to a message first. The only hiccup with this setup is now if I go to a second computer and check my messages, because messages re left on the server, the second Outlook client downloads the messages again and I get duplicates.
Since you are obviously a power user, is there a better way I could set this up?
