Default Need help with migration from school BES account to 3rd party hosted exchange/BES

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

I have tried digging through some of the previous posts, but keep getting more confused the more I try to apply it to my situation. Hope someone can help.

Here is my current configuration:
School-provided Exchange mailbox with BES service for my blackberry (
I also forward my personal gmail account ( to my school account.
When I send from my blackberry (or use outlook on my PC), it sends using my [email address] address.

Unfortunately since i've graduated, my school is cutting my BES service. Accordingly, i want to go to a third-party hosted exchange/BES service. Incoming mail is no problem (or so i believe), since i can easily forward both my school/gmail accounts to whatever address I need (i plan on just forwarding to my new hosted email address).

My question is, is there a way to have it so that when i send emails from my Blackberry (as well from Outlook on my PC) that they show up to recipients as either coming from my school account ( or my personal account (, without any negative spam ramifications? Ideally all sent emails from the blackberry will seamlessly sync to my Exchange mailbox sent items and vice versa (like it does with my current configuration).

Any advice/help would be greatly appreciated

I do this now with a email forwarded to my hosted exchange service [email address]. When I send, it shows the email address. There was a setup procedure within my exchange service to get this working. I have not had any problems.
