Default Composing Email on my PC, then sending via BlackBerry

Please Login to Remove!

I have a 7250 through Alltel. I am a novice user.

My question is, how can I compose email on my PC and then send via my BlackBerry?

For instance, suppose I am on a plane and reading/responding to email while offline on my PC. I would like to send the emails I have composed via my BlackBerry when I land. (I will not be able to VPN with my PC until later in the day).

I suppose I could save the email as a note, sync my BlackBerry, then copy and paste into email. But, I am seeking something more efficient.

Thanks,

Hight

Hight, welcome to BBF! As a heads-up, I should warn you that folks are sometimes disinclined to answer questions that, like this one, tend to pop up several times a month. The best course is to do a search of past posts and narrow your inquiry with the information contained in those posts.

In any event, synching the message text via an Outlook note is probably the best solution. You can also set up your BB to serve as your laptop's modem, and send the e-mail directly from the laptop, though I'm not sure how well that would work with your VPN. I haven't seen any more elegant options in the recent threads discussing this issue, though there might be a gem or two tucked away in an old post. For the most part, though, the typical suggestion is to leave the laptop in the overhead bin (or at the office), and, to the extent possible, crank out the e-mail on the BB itself. Best wishes in finding a method that works well for you!

Try saving your e-mail as a draft then sync.

Default Thanks

Thanks for the tips on posting and my issue.

I should have been explicit about the fact I had searched and discovered the modem and 'save the email as a memo' options.

I'll give the modem option a shot and update that thread if I confirm the ability to do so through my service provider, Alltel.

Thanks again,

John
