Default Setting pop3 email on 7100g

Please Login to Remove!

I am new and am thinking about getting the 7100G from cingular. I have been researching and looking through the forums about some questions I had and still needed some help:

I use Outlook 2003 to check my email and leave my computer on all day and night. However when I am out of town, I don't leave it on since I have to travel with it and it is off for hours and days sometimes. I just have a simple pop3 email from [email address] and wondered how the bb can push it without having the computer on. Does it require another application to put on the bb or computer or just a simple change on the server?

Also, how does the email show up on the BB?
Does it have all the same info like to, time, from, etc?
Does it show up like an email from myself or the original sender and can I reply to them directly?
One more thing, are there any sites that show pic's of what a word, excel, pdf document look like when it is opened on a BB?

Thanks for any help you can give

rattleme - Welcome to BBForums!

You don't have to change anything on a server; every BlackBerry comes with a web based service called the BlackBerry Internet Service. You log into Cingular's BIS web site, set up an account, which is associated with your BB. You then have the BIS "push" the e-mail from Cox.Net to your BB. It occurs every 15 minutes or so, so it is NOT instantaneous.

It will have the same info like to, time, from, etc.
It will show up like an e-mail from you and you can reply to them.
Your computer does not need to be on for this.

No pictures; attachment handling is rudimentary. There are some third party attachments ($) that handle attachments better, like eOffice.

NJBlackBerry, yes, I know I've posted it before, but it seems people don't easily see the link

Thanks for the info, but I have one other question.

Can you set up the push to only send certain email?
I have NIS and with Outlook it sends SPAM to the SPAM folder and the real emails to the inbox. I don't want to get lots of SPAM during the day and wondered if BB can push only certain emails? Also, does anyone have a picture of what the pdf,word,etc attachment looks like on the BB?

Your best bet would be to contact Cox and see if they have an option that you can set to send only unlikely spam via POP3. For example, I know Yahoo has an option like this. They have an inbox, and a spam folder. Anything in the inbox goes to your POP3 client. Anything in the spam folder does not. Sending mail from the spam folder via POP3 is an option you can turn on/off as you desire. Cox may have something similar.

Assuming Cox does not have an option to do what is described above, unfortunatley there will be no way for you to selectively receive mail via POP3. It's an all or nothing deal.
