Default Blackberry 8830 (verizon)

Please Login to Remove!

I am looking at buying the 8830 but can not get a simple answer.
I travel (U.S. mostly). I currently have the Treo 700wx and use Office 2003. I have a company server using Exchange 2003 can I get the full outlook to work without having to buy the blackberry server? I currently use the verizon wireless sync.
If i can will the oulook sync both ways?

The Blackberry Desktop Manager program will sync everything BUT email. It will not happen over the air either, you will have to plug the BB into your pc.

As for email. Your exchange server will not be instant delivery, but will be polled (i believe 15 or 20 minute intervals) for new messages, no matter if you use imap or pop3. You could have your exchange email forwarded to your [email address] address, which WOULD be instant delivery, but you'll have to BCC: yourself all the messages you send, because the blackberry email address wont save them (they will still reside on your device, however). This BCC: feature can be configured to happen automatically, with all email's sent, no user intervention required.

Consider this, Blackberry will give you a 1 license BES server for free. Good luck.

I suggest you read the FAQ. It has a lot of info and will help answer many of your questions.

I never recommend using the carrier email address as you do not control it. If the carrier decides to change it is gone. If you switch carriers, it is gone and can't go with you. If RIM is down, the only way to read the mail is via the BB so no RIM, no Mail. Plus, there is no SPAM filter.

If you need wireless sync for contacts and calender data, a BES or hosted BES is the solution. In your case, with one user, probably the hosted BES from Mailstreet, exchangemymail or similar provider is the better option. Setting up your own BES isn't an option unless you have a lot of time to spend making it work and tweaking it.

BIS works fine for my email purposes and for many others in the corporate world. The 15 minute delay has never been an issue.
