I'm am totally new to BB and am due to be getting an 8310 Curve on the Vodafone UK tarrif in May / June.
I am now looking into my options of recieving and sending email and have a few questions if that's ok.
I work for a small company so do not have an Exchange / Enterprise or BES server. I currently use 'pull' email on my Nokia phone, my office email system the budget "WorkGroup Mail" sends a copy of my work emails to a spare pop3 account (googlemail etc.) and my Nokia phone dials in.
My ISP, Demon UK do not support a Blackberry / mobile phone dialing straight into my pop3 box because it resets all the other accounts in the office - I won't bore you with the details but just accept that this option will not work
As I understand it I could use my spare pop3 account and the Blackberry would check this every 15 minutes. This would suffice if there was no other option.
Looking on blackberryFAQ I saw that I could get a BIS email address free and then recieve almost instant email - this sounds perfect. I assume that my office WorkgroupMail server could send a copy of my emails to my BIS email address (instead of my spare POP3 account) and I would recieve them instantly.
I could then hopefully configure the BIS email to show my actual work email address as the "repy" address so that any sent emails appear to have come from my office email address?
Am I making sense? If anyone could point me in the right direction in this matter I would be most thankfull!
Thanks in advance
