I just upgraded from my old Blackberry Curve/Javelin to the Bold (9780) and I am having issues changing the 'Active Device' for the email syncing feature 'Desktop Redirector'. On the machine that is running the redirector software I am running Desktop Manager 4.7, old I know but it is the latest version I know of that supported the redirector software.
I am also aware that BlackBerry has had the intention to discontinue support for redirector and I am guessing this might be the reason for my pain switching the active device, so I need to find an alternative solution.
Here are a couple of constraints
- Simply forwarding emails is not a solution as we need to also send emails from the same account, sending emails with a reply-to address is not an allowable option.
- BES is not available, and we are only talking about connecting one device so the licensing and administration/maintenance costs of BES are prohibitive.
So what other options are there that I can explore?
