Default BB desktop-where is the redirector

Please Login to Remove!

I tried to setup BB desktop for a friend. He has Outlook 2003 used with POP email. His computer is on all of the time. I forget to note which BB he has but it is on Nextel.

I remember doing this in the past and there was a desktop and a redirector.

The only download I can find at BB is this:

Desktop Manager 4.7.0 B50 English - Without Media Manager

* File name: 470_b050_english_nomediamanager.exe
* File size: 81.1052 MB
* Date posted: 17-Nov-08

I installed it and we can sync his BB using USB. But no redirector was installed and I can't find a download for it.

I searched and found a few references that the redirector is included in the desktop download.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks

Redirector is used in Microsoft Exchange environments.
It won't work for a POP3 account.

Since your friend's email is POP3, then just integrate it using BIS.
You don't need redirector.

Thanks, for some reason I thought I set something like this up before and it worked.

Seems like BIS only does email and would have to be set to get mail from his POP account. So if he left his desktop and Outlook running (he always does because someone may enter something on his schedule) we would need to be concerned about duplicates and only one of them deleting the POP mail from the server.

I am pretty sure he wants calendar/tasks to sync wirelessly too. From reading it looks like some folks are using Google calendar to do this.

In another thread I found thinkpost.net but they don't sync email:

"ThinkPost offers syncing between the BB and Outlook for Contacts/Calendar/Notes/Tasks."

So it seems he would still need to worry about the multiple POP clients.

I just don't want to suggest something that works and is reasonably trouble free considering what he has to work with.

I would suggest your friend comes here to ask questions directly.
It seems that you really aren't familiar with the features of the BlackBerry and how the integration works.

Probably better for that person to get first hand information, rather than second hand.

Ideally it would do everything that a BES would do which would be synchronizing everything wirelessly. Given what he has Outlook, POP and no Exchange server what choices are there?

There is no way to do what he wants.
Full wireless sync requires BES and an Exchange, Domino or Groupwise server.

Have this person switch to Yahoo or Google. There's some additional options for wireless sync that might give calendar and contacts... but not Tasks or Memos.

He can set up email in BIS using POP and then use Google Calendar Sync to sync calendar events. That is what I do and it works very well.

BES does far more than just that. I'm, however, assuming that wireless sync is all that is required?

Yes, I should have wrote that differently.

Do you have any issues (duplicates, which one deletes off the server etc) if both desktop Outlook and BIS are both accessing the POP account?
