Clarification on push email
I'm undecided between a BB 9700 and a Motorola Droid/Milestone (Android OS).
I'd like some clarifications on email, as that's very important to me.
I need the following (using an Imap, not Exchange, server):
1) to manage two email addresses
2) to delete an email from the server when I delete it from the mobile, and viceversa
3) to upload to the server emails I send from the mobile
Imap idle clients on Nokias and Androids do 2 and 3 (Profimail and k-9 email, for instance).
Does BIS on Blackberry? :?
Or are 2 and 3 only possible with a BES, which is too expensive for me and would cause me to rule out the Blackberry? :-(
Alternatively, are there third party email clients on the Blackberry which would do what I need? I read about the funambol java email client for BB, but it seems pretty limited.
BIS just doesnt have full IMAP support.
You get half IMAP support. BB to server. Not server to BB.
It seems like, if email is important for you, then the Blackberry is only really worth it if you have an Exchange server and a BES plan.
If you use an imap mail server, almost all other systems (Nokias, Android, WinMobile) have imap idle clients which fully synchronize the mobile to the server, work over wifi, too, and only require an ordinary data plan (no expensive BES).
PS Out of curiosity, can you fully synchronize a BB with an imap mail server with BES at least? Or not even?
BES is an enterprise solution that works with Exchange, Domino or Groupwise.
You wouldn't use an IMAP email server as the messaging platform.
