I'm very close to changing my mobile phone to a Blackberry after I've become unhappy with my current network provider.
I have a question about the email services available though. my current phone, a Nokia e65, has an email application that will automatically check a POP3 email address every 30 mins, and this is ok, ish. However, My network offer an instant email service with SEVEN | WELCOME
, where the email is pushed, just like a blackberry, but I had major problems with this - as it hammers the battery life, and more importantly, the seven.com servier pinged my email host every 20ms! that's 50 times a second. Bandwidth over a few days went through the roof, and this position was unsustainable.
If I purchase a BB on the UKs o2 network, I will be provided with a BB email adress. I know it's possible to set up POP3 email accounts on the BB, but how does this work? does it link into the Network BB email?
Can I get the BB Network Account to dip into my POP3 account and retrieve the email? And when I reply, can I get it to send from my POP3 email address, so when people reply it goes to my personal POP3?
Basically what I want, is to be able to use my own personal host POP3 email address to send and receive on the go, but with the instant accessibility of the BB functionality. Is this possible?
