Default Please Help!!!! New Blackberry User!!!

Please Login to Remove!

I just purchased a BB 8700C from Cingular. I'm having a hard time setting the email up properly. This is for my personal use. I do not have an Exchange server, just using my home computer. I use Outlook for all of my contacts, email, calender, etc.

I attempted to setup the Redirector, but it does not seem to be working right. If I receive emails to my BB and delete them or file them, when I sync (with the USB cable), aren't the deleted or filed emails supposed to be deleted or filed in f Outlook?

Also, even though I have the box checked to not download emails to my BB when connected to my computer, I still am receiving emails.

Lastly, for the Redirector to work properly, does Outlook need to remain open, or does it matter?

I'm probably being an idiot about this, but I would appreciate some help!!!

Thanks,
Brian

You probably don't want Redirector with a personal PC and yes I believe your PC would have to be on 24/7 for it to work.

For the fastest email on the receive side, go to your mailserver and forward a copy to your BB addy. Then you will get your email in 2-5 seconds from when the mail server sends it. If you set up the mail in the webclient, it takes up to 15 minutes, as that process only polls your mail every 15 minutes. On the webclient, you can change the "send from" email from the BB addy to your regular addy. (If you have already added your email to the webclient, you will now get your messages twice and you can see the difference in speed).

With this set up, I only use the DM software to sync addresses, calendar, tasks, not email. I get the email during the day on my BB and reply or delete them and then at night receive them again on my home pc and file them in folders or whatever.

The Redirector is designed to work with an Exchange e-mail account. Other configurations, while they may work, are not supported. There is a very nice sticky thread about the different ways of getting e-mail to your BB, can I suggest you start there.

Can you explain this a little further, or point me in the right direction?

Thanks

If I could explain it to you, I would have to kill you ;)

See this thread: FAQ: What Are The Methods of Receiving Email On BlackBerry?

Bo, Forwarding email to your BIS address means that the BIS gets the email as soon as it hits your regular email account and is forwarded to the BIS and then will go on to the BB right away. If you set the BIS to pull the email from the regular email account, it does so only every 15 minutes or so, and then all of the emails pulled from that attempt get pushed to the BB at once. So, its a matter of seconds with forwarding and can be up to 15 minutes with the BIS doing all of the work. JT

Thanks for the info.....

After playing with this for a while, I assumed that the Redirector was not the way to go. Also, the web client was a bit slow.

My only issue is that if I forward my email from my SBCglobal.net account to my BB, according to SBC, I will not get a copy sent to the main address. If that is the case, all emails will be on my BB and not on my home PC?!?!? That's not any good.

My only option may be the web client, but that stinks!!!

Thanks,
Brian

I just have a POP3 account, but I was able to add a forward "copy" of the and leave message on the server. I read my mail from multiple PCs with outlook, but one my Home PC is defined to "delete from server".

I guess that I could make a rule in Outlook where all messages that come to me are automatically forwarded to the BB address. That should happen immediately....I think.

I find it easiest to set up a NEW pop account and set up a rule in outlook. That way you don't have the CC'd mail appear on your rim.

Shane,
Can you elaborate a little more? Not sure what you are talking about.

Thanks,
Brian

Setting it up in Outlook only works if your PC is on 24/7 and Outlook is running and even then only when Outlook gets the message.

forget redirector in your circumstances.

What you need to do is forward all of your email to your carrier.blackberry.net account.
If you want to keep your outgoing messages in your outlook, Set your auto BCC to a new POP box that you've set up specifically to BCC these messages to (ie: [email address]) and set a rul in outlook to automatically mark these as read and move them to your sent messages folder. That way they appear under sent messages in outlook and you never see them in your inbox or on your wireless handheld becayuse the pop account associated with them doesn't forward to your rim.
You don't need to leave your outlook on as it is all taken care of every time your send/receive runs (ie: every time you open your outlook) and your sent messages will automatically 'reconcile'.

Hope that helps.
Shane

I'm migrating from a Treo 600 (Verizon) to a Blackberry 7100g (Cingular). First thing was to use PocketMac to port my 1 MB VCAL file to the 7100. It runs fast on the Treo (as fast as I can click through the data), but to go from one day to the next on the BB using the '>' key takes FOUR SECONDS. To complete a new event takes more than a second to be entered after keying in the info. This BB is not for me and it's going back. However, can anyone provide me with some speed specs on the 7100 vs. 7290 vs 8790? I checked the benchmarking section in this forum and noticed maybe a 30% improvement from the 7100. That's still dismal. Can anyone provide some assistance on this? Thx.

I have used the 7100 and it's much faster than my 7730 ever was. If you want something faster than the 7100g, I would suggest Verizon's 7130e with their BroadbandAccess, TMobile's 8700g with EDGE, or a Sprint BB with EVDO.
