Default Newbie needing help....

Please Login to Remove!

I am just trying to find a quick way of helping me use My 7520 through Nextel.

The functions I want to use it for is to have e-mails forwarded from my AOL account to my phone. Is this possible?

Also I would like to be able to upload Excel files from my PC to my blackberry to view and modify them. I have downloaded the free trial of eOffice. Any help is much appreciated.

I don't know how AOL works, but I would imagine you can forward your email to your web client. For excel files, you would need to email them to yourself as an attachment. Then you should be able to modify them with eOffice.

You should be able to via the blackberry webclient.
Once you log in go to:

- Profile
- Email Accounts - other email accounts
- Add account

Default might have AOL trouble

I have trouble reading friends' AOL messages on my 7230 (T-mobile on BWC)

Everything comes through as an attachment that can't be opened. I don't know if it's AOL service or something else.

Cool

Had the same problem receiving AOL mail as attachments, here what I did to clear it up:

Advise everyone that sends you email to remove the background pictures, email tags, or animated sigs. tell them to send plain text, unless they are actualy sending you a file. Its been working for me for a little over a month now.

What is happening is that the emails (including ones with attachments) are getting forwarded as attachments to the BWC account. This will cause embedded attachments where it is an attachment inside an attachment. The BWC user interface can deal with embedded attachments - should be able to view them if you log in - however, the BlackBerry itself is not designed to view embedded attachments.

The fix - change your forwarding rule so it doesn't forward emails as attachments

Default re:

The open dbx and outlook express help has prompted you a path of the Outlook Express files' storage. And now save the damaged dbx files in the safe folder, they can be useful.
