Lightbulb Blackberry email vs Iphone email

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,
I had a question. I'm going to receive my blackberry tomorrow and its going to replace my Iphone 3g. My friend too got a blackberry last week and set up his email account on it. One thing, I noticed was that it only loads new emails and doesn't upload old emails that are on that email account.
The Iphone does that. You can even search for old emails that are beyond the "200" email limit of the iphone/emails which are very old and are on the server.

Is there a way I can load all of my emails on my blackberry like I do it on Iphone or on Microsoft Outlook?

Thanks

so it will only load new emails? Can't you even search the server for old emails or search in different folders of your email?

You can do this if it is a gmail account if you install the "Enhanced Google Mail Plug-in"

I can't post a link but you can google "Enhanced Google Mail Plug-in"

Nope Blackberries will only receive pushed e-mail. You will still have the e-mails in your normal mailbox but you will not get them all

That is the big "fooled you" when it comes to BB mail. Only user of the expensive BES get that kind of access to their email. The standard BIS user has a very limited email experience when using the BB.

LogicMail will let you do much of what you want. It is a IMAP/POP/SMTP client for Blackberry. BIS gives you push email (from RIM to the Blackberry) and essentially push speeds for servers that support IMAP IDLE, one of the "costs" of that is that email is "delivered" to the Blackberry, you aren't logging into your IMAP server. LogicMail allows you to log into your IMAP server and do what most IMAP email clients do.

I don't use if very often, but looking for email in a folder on my IMAP server when I'm away from all my PCs is the main reason I keep it around. Sometimes you just can't wait to get back in front of the big screen to find or re-read a particular message. Well worth having on the phone, if you have the space.

Default LogicMail

It really annoys me that people keep touting the benefits of LogicMail. You can't even file your messages. If all i wanted was to be able to access all of my messages, i would just use the mobile Blackberry Gmail app.

Can't we just get native 2-way IMAP support?!?
