Here’s my story…
I just started a new job at my company and was told I would get a Blackberry, which I have used in the past. There is now a hold on all company cell phones and BBs because people have been abusing their mobiles and the bills coming in probably made the big guy mad. In the meantime, the company is still paying my bill.
Turns out I was eligible for an upgrade and decided to get myself the Curve to replace my 1G iPhone (I like it, but it just seems like a toy…). Since I don’t yet have approval to hop on the BES and need my email, I’m going to use BIS and try to manage until things get figured out.
Here’s my question: is there a way to use my gmail account and make it seem like I’m using my company’s email? I know I can send emails through gmail under my company's email address, but can I forward them from Outlook to my gmail without being the sender (i.e. redirecting emails?). That way I could reply from my BB from my company email address without it looking weird…
It would only be temporary anyway, but I do need access to my email ASAP.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
