Default Sending and Receiving From Multiple Email Addresses

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

First post here. Hope to find an answer to my problem as well as being able to contribute to the forums.

Here is my scenario. We have Exchange 2003 Enterprise. We have a BES server. We have several employees that have multiple SMTP email addresses tied to their accounts.

For example, user John Smith has 4 email addresses all tied into his single AD account.

[email address]
[email address]
[email address]
[email address]

John's primary email address setup in Active Directory is [email address].

All outbound email's get a reply to email address reflecting his primary account email address of [email address].

John is able to receive email sent to any of his 4 email addresses.

Outlook by itself is unable to give the ability to choose which email address to use as a 'Reply To' for outbound emails.

We used an Outlook Addon called Smart Reply 2007 and when configured properly, it allows the user to pick and choose which email address an outbound email uses.

Now that we have a background, here comes the issue.

We have several execs that need to be able to have the same "choosing" functionality on their Blackberry as they do with their Outlook client.

Short of hiring a software developer to make a custom application for us, is there any other solution for this?

I'm aware that this is possible for multiple POP accounts to be setup, but not multiple email addresses tied to a single user account.

Thanks for any tips or suggestions!

I'm not sure if you want to look at an "external" solution, but with PocketDay, you can set up 10 alternate "From:" email addresses. You can check out the product at pocketday.com.

Default Sending and Receiving From Multiple Email Addresses

I had a similar issue. Will try to explain our work around. (Be kind guys I am sure i'll screw up soe terminology along the way).

I own 2 small businesses. Each with their own domain. We had been using POP3 via network solutions and BIS. But I personally use a desktop, a laptop and a BB and of course they were nver in sync.

So... after lurking about the forums for a couple of months I pieced together the following work around.

I signed up with a hosted MES servicee (used split domain at first so I could test this on just my email) as well as BES.

Domain 1 for me gets about 75% of my traffic so that is the domain set up with MES/BES. Full sync of all functions between the 3 devices mentioned above. I have 3 other old pop3 accounts forwarded to the domain 1 address (did not leave copy on tghe pop3 server).

For domain 2 i set up a domain alias and a rule in OWA that all email sent to that address goes to an inbox called inbox 2.

Using BIS i set up the address for domain 2 on the BB. All emai sent to domain 2 gets forwarded to inbox 2 and i have that account set NOT to retain copies on the server (prevents duplicates). By having domain 2 set up via BIS I can use BIS to reply to emails sent to domain 2 so they have the correct sent from reply to address.

The only down side is emails sent from BIS via BB ondomain 2 do not sync between the machines.

Hey. I was wondering if any one knows how to temporarily stop email messages from coming in from an email address without deleting the email address from the handset?
