Get a different job.

Seriously... your job dictates your mobility solutions. You should speak to them and determine whether or not they support BlackBerry. You may be able to use BIS along with Exchange depending on how Exchange is configured.
If Exchange supports public POP, IMAP or OWA access... then you should be good to go.

penguin is right on. My work has OWA for their Exchange server (no POP or IMAP though) and I am able to get it on my BB without a problem.

Just add them to add a forwarder to your work email address and forward that to your blackberry address. Configure your other email addresses via the BIS.

Using a WM device really is not bad at all. Maybe you should give it a try. Plus, with many new WM devices you can also use BlackBerry Connect.

Try to configure your new email account just like you would a private email account, enter your address and password. It may work, it did for me.

If not, a couple others have mentioned OWA which will also work if it is set up on your exchange server. I think there are some FAQs here of how to get OWA set up.....

EDIT: here it is, if you have OWA... Integrate a Microsoft Outlook Web Access email account with a BlackBerry Internet Service account

Just wanted to post that BIS is not compatible with MS Exchange 2007, yet. If your company has MS Exchange 2003, you're okay.

What you mean Exchange 2007 doesn't support mail forwarding to [email address]??

C'mon that's a bit of a dumb post.. Sure BIS might not be compatible with exchange '07 OWA but there's 2 other ways of getting email from an exchange box to BIS...

Well, the POP3 and IMAP services are often not even started. And any admin worth his salt will check the logs for forwarding.

Why do that? Forwarding works, but it takes away sync. Only forward if OWA to BIS does not work.

Why is it dumb? He was telling members BIS doesn't work with exchange 07, he didn't say you couldn't get your mail other ways. Not only is BIS not compatible with M$ exchange 07, but neither is Evolution (Gnome Linux email client) M$ does this on purpose to shift users to M$ solutions (Outlook, Win mobile)

Whoa... hold on a sec.
You're a bit off base here, Mister M$ man.

BIS most certainly is compatible with Microsoft Exchange 2007. It's NOT compatible with Outlook Web Access 2007.
If Exchange 2007 is set up to allow POP and/or IMAP access... then BIS will work fine. If you're going to nitpick, at least pick the right nits.

I find that difficult to believe, since even RIM indicates that BIS is not yet compatible with OWA 2007.

From BlackBerry Search Results :
Important: Some wireless service providers do not support integration with all email account types. Contact your service provider to verify that Microsoft Outlook Web Access is supported.

Note: BlackBerry Internet Service does not currently support integration with Microsoft Outlook Web Access 2007 accounts."

Believe what you like, I have it working on my BB as well as one of the partners here.

I used the instructions posted in this thread for setting it up and it works.

I'm curious... for those who are using OWA (2003 or 2007) with BIS, how is the integration? Is it fully two-way (read, unread, deleted) and does it poll as it would with a POP account?
