I wish BlackBerry would support the following option :

When I receive a message sent to one of my addresses:
Reply from the same address the message was sent to


just like Gmail. This seems like core functionality that would have been supported a long time ago?

I agree that this would be a nice feature. It would come in very handy for me.

I may be missing something here, but, unless I am GREATLY mistaken, your BB will ONLY reply to an email using the email service which received the message. You can't change that, except by forwarding.

The only exceptions might be IF you have some BES restriction to doing so, OR, in your BIS setup at your carrier site, you have that email address set to reply from another.

You are correct that's why I think the ability would be a nice future addition.

Um, that's not what the OP asked for:

Quote:
When I receive a message sent to one of my addresses:
Reply from the same address the message was sent to
By default this is what BIS does if you have "properly" (i.e. use BIS the way it's designed to be used) integrated your email accounts.

I suspect that the OP probably has multiple accounts forwarded (or the addresses are aliases) to one account and that the one account is integrated with BIS?

Email account 1 ----\
Email account 2 ---------> Gmail -----> BIS
Email account 3 ----/

If that's the case then there's no way that BIS can properly handle things. The mail in my crappy ASCII art example comes from gmail to BIS and BIS will send all replies via gmail.

For what the OP desires each email account needs to be directly integrated with BIS.

Email account 1 ---------> BIS
Email account 2 ---------> BIS
Email account 3 ---------> BIS
Gmail -------------------> BIS

With this arrangement a reply will be sent by BIS using the account that the email message came from.

The caveat is that the OP will have to undo whatever was set up to forward mail from the multiple addresses to gmail (or set up filters in BIS) or else there will obviously be dupes.

Hi takeshi,

You are absolutely right. I have the 1st setup since I would like all my email in my gmail account so that it is centralized and archived in a single location, and so that I do not have to check all my other accounts.

Actually, technically, I don't have exactly the same setup as you depicted. Instead of my other accounts forwarding email to my Gmail account, I have my Gmail account grab email from the other accounts through Gmail's POP interface.

If all you want is to archive it, then add those other accounts to your BIS email, use those regularly, and set the autoBCC option to Gmail. then Gmail will still get a copy of your incoming messages via POP, your BB will allow you to respond to them as you would any other email from that email account, and when you send an email, it would archive in gmail.

takeshi's solution would work if I did not care about having all accessible and archived in a single location:

Email account 1 ---------> BIS
Email account 2 ---------> BIS
Email account 3 ---------> BIS
Gmail -------------------> BIS

However, centralizing my email in a single Gmail account is important to me, so I currently have this setup:

Email_1 --> POP --> Gmail
Email_2 --> POP --> Gmail
Email_1 ---> BIS (setting messages not to forwarded to the device)
Email_2 ---> BIS (setting messages not to forwarded to the device)
Gmail -------------> BIS (autoBCC to Gmail)

This at least allows me to compose email addresses using the addresse's of the other accounts.

Sith, I like your proposed solution, but since my main Gmail account is also on BIS, which is getting the POP'd email, won't I get dupes (this is why I have forwarding off).

Thanks!

OK, I guess I figured it out on my own... Just set a rule in BIS like...

From:
Email_1;Email_2;Email_3 etc.

Do not forward messages to device.

So in the setup above, where the accounts are popped into Gmail, and all the accounts are on BIS, including the main Gmail account, how is is that I am not getting dupes on my BB?

Thanks!
