Default Server fwrd or set up web client??

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys,

I just got my first BlackBerry, a 7130 and love it. I am wondering if there is a benifet to adding my email accounts in the webclient vs just having my server forward them to my blackberry address. Seems to me to be basically then same. Any advantages either way?

The difference is that having a server forward your email is almost instantaneous, but setting it up on the webclient is a polling process and you will get your mail in lumps every 10 to 15 minutes. You can set it up both ways and you will get 2 copies of each mail about 15 minutes apart to test it if you like.
