Default BB corporate email without BES

Please Login to Remove!

I've just accepted a job offer as an IT manager (and basically the whole IT department) at a not for profit organization. My current cell phone contract expires this week as well (great timing! ). I really feel the like having a smart phone would be helpful to my position since I'm not going to be checking email that often after hours if I have to go to my PC to do it. As I mentioned its a non-profit so I doubt they are going to spring for a BES server anytime soon (and i don't want to ask), and to my knowledge there is only one other smart phone in the organization and it is the CEO's. I believe she is using a Windows phone with RPC over HTTP. I want to get one but HATE windows mobile. Is there anyway to push email to the BB (don't want to have to check webmail to do it) with something like RPC over HTTP or IMAP, or even POP). They are running exchange 07 on server 08 there and I will be the exchange admin so that should make it possible to make changes if need be. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Sure, if you have POP or IMAP access you can set up your Blackberry to get your mail over BIS. Depending on your server setup it could even be instant push. At worst it would be on a 15-minute cycle. Once you have a Blackberry data plan you should be able to log into the BIS page at Verizon and even set up multiple accounts if you want. Work email, personal email, whatever, all on one BB, and all being delivered to one Blackberry.

You can get a free single user version of BES from RIM.

...and OWA too if you're on Exchange.

Just create a BIS account and point it to the companies OWA address .. likely they don't have crazy security for a NFP.

Just running Alt-N Mdaemon as my mail server using IMAP IDLE, I get instant push over BIS. I don't get the Calendar and Contacts of a BES. But the mail is instant.
