Default NotifyLink and BES on same device?

Please Login to Remove!

I have BES (exchange) set up at work. I am on BES for full ota synch.

Merging with a new company which uses Zimbra mail server. They are not on Zimbra 5 yet, so no BES integration yet. They have given me a NotifyLink client as a way to get email off the Zimbra server.

Installing NotifyLink - first off it seems huge. Is there any chance of this breaking my BES integration, or can the two co-exist?

Would I be better off just creating a BIS email account to talk to the Zimbra IMAP interface? [uninstall notifylink]

Thanks for suggestions,
Dan

The two can co-exist as NotifyLink does not integrate with your native Blackberry messaging app. I previously had NotifyLink on my BB at the same time I had my BB tied to a BES. NotifyLink is a stand alone app (and because of this, it has its own unique issues you will grow to hate - i.e. new message indicator light blinks only once and then goes off, no "push" email, rather it polls the server, and depending on how often you decide to poll the server, it kills your battery, etc.) Thankfully, I no longer have to use NotifyLink as my company installed Exchange Server and BES.
