Default Newbie question!

Sorry if this is so basic.

I basically ordered a 7290 from ATT to replace a treo 600. The features I am looking for are email connectivity and calendar synchronization with outlook. Is this possible with the 7290?

Also, with the more advanced features of outlook (like over the air synchronzation of calendar and email folders) do I need BES?

Any Blackberry for Dummies guides?

THANKS!

Seriously - and not trying to be overly sarcastic - did any documentation come with your new 7290? A Getting Started guide perhaps.

But here's some hints: What type of mail account do you have? If it is a POP3 account, use the BlackBerry Web Client (BWC) to collect and forward the mail. There is a thread on where to find the various carriers BWC. If you have an Exchange e-mail acoxxxx, you can use the BlackBerry Redirector that comes on the CD with the 7290.

Install the BlackBerry Desktop Manager - that is on the CD in the box. Use Intellisync to synchronize the contacts, calendar, notes and tasks with your existing e-mail system (Outlook, Outlook Express, Notes, whatever).

Wireless calendar requires a BES or hosted BES solution.

That should be enough to get you started..

Enjoy your 7290!
