Default Accessing "ultra-secured" Emails Via Bis

Please Login to Remove!

I hope someone has an idea for this . . I just turned my brother in law into a BB addict. He works for a major pharmaceutical company - he can only access his email from his notebook (VPN and 2 factor authentication) using Lotus Notes 6.5. His company uses Lotus instead of MS Exhange.

He would like to get email on his new Curve - however, his company does not allow it, except for their executive team (I guess they think executives are immune to losing cell phones . . )

In spite of this, he would like to do so anyway. The Blackberry BIS account mail setup program could not automatically find his email address (of course).

I then tried providing the settings manually - it could not find the email server, even though I entered precisely the email server name noted on the Lotus Notes client account information (am guessing the email server is proxied behind something else for security)

I then tried setting a rule in Lotus Notes to forward emails to the outside - their system blocks all message forwarding except to other people in the same domain.

Because it is Lotus Notes, to my knowledge BB Re-director will not work since it only supports Outlook.

Lastly - his company does not have email web access.

If anyone has a creative idea, I would appreciate you sharing it.

My creative idea is follow company policy. If he needs it have him plead his case to the IT department. Trying to get around the issue will just have him ending up jobless.

I second this.

Sounds like they have some serious corporate security concerns (which is understandable), and finding a "workaround" will almost guarantee losing what sounds like a great job.

I think you're on the wrong forum if you're looking for ideas to circumvent security. There is just too much at stake if any confidential records were ever compromised. We run a tight ship here.

I'm in a similar situation, no longer have access to corporate BES. Tried desktop redirector and forwarding emails, both of which were blocked. Finally decided the best solution was to get a netbook. Not the perfect solution but it actually is pretty handy and now I don't need to carry a notebook most days.
