Unhappy Personal Domain Mail Question

Please Login to Remove!

Alright,

I give up here! I am tired of reading Mark's faqs my head hurts!

Ok I'm a hardcore tech and this is starting to drive me nuts! I am over the BIS email server. The damn thing is to slow, 15 minutes to Yank down mail to their service, what are we living in the stone age here? Why can't I change that timer? Why in the hell hasn't someone wrote a pop client for BB if these damn things have full TCP?

Someone help me out here:
I just want my domain mail on my BB.
I want to be able to reply with my bb with the hosted domain name and not BB.net junky one.
I want my mail fast, not yesterday

My specs:
I control my domain mail and accounts.
Nextel BB 7520 with MDS, got the TCP junk and everything. No problem there.


OY! My head hurts..

I use a .procmailrc script on my mailserver to selectively forward email to my [email address] address.

Set the "From" and "Reply to" fields in the blackberry web client to mimic your primary email and you are ready to rock.

It is quite fast, and with some tinkering you can make procmail do some very sophisticated filtering.

It also allows you to keep the messages archived in your regular email program.

If you have control over your mail server, just forward all your mail to the BB. I forward mine to gmail for the spam filtering, and I get it within seconds of it coming in. No need to run .procmailrc really, unless you're wanting to do something more than just forward to the BB.

So both of you use the BB exclusively? You don't use outlook or another web client when sitting at your desk?

Matt, tried your and it works pretty damn fast. Just gotta leave a copy some place now.

J, your forwarding all your domain mail to gmail and then forwarding gmail to bb?

Yes, I forward all mail to gmail which then goes to the BB. I use outlook and pop my gmail account also. There are threads on here that talk about how to set up various filters etc. so that mail sent from the BB are threaded correctly in gmail etc.

Hardly stone age... the Blackberry is designed for push email so there's not really any need for a specialized POP email client.

There are two ways to overcome the 15 minute POP polling interval:

1. Forward to your Blackberry instead of having BIS poll the POP account (already mentioned in this thread).
2. Switch to BES.

I am on some mailing lists I do not want forwarded to the BB, and I want to filter out whatever SpamAssasin flags, so I have a little procmail script that forwards a copy of everything else to the BB, and sends all messages to my regular email account as well.

So I have an archive of all my email, and see the important / personal stuff immediately on the BB.

If you forward all your mail to the BWC you can set up filters there for what you want to send and what you don't want to send on to the BB. Or, if you have gmail set up your filters there as to what is forwarded. I love the spam filters gmail has, it's cut down the spam I receive drastically. I might receive one a week that gets through.

Thanks for the posts guys, I guess I need to tweak the hell out of the SpamAssasin flags or use a gmail account to help this.

J, when you forward to your gmail and then forward to BB, what headers are left in it? Is it the gmail one or your domain one?

Thanks,
John

Well, the address it shows is my main email, the one I forward to gmail. I also have my reply-to address as my main email address both in my BWC and in gmail. I do use outlook to download email from my gmail account and if I send or answer an email it shows my gmail address, but the reply-to is my main email.
