Default Comcast Email

Please Login to Remove!

OK I have a Bold 9650 and am on Verizon. My Email comes through Comcast. Everything works but of course takes up to 15 minutes to come through. I've heard the best solution is to forward email leaving a copy on server so I'll still get it on my PC and to do this to a BB email address. I've also heard you can configure that email to use Comcast address as reply from email. Anybody have any experience with this?

Default Re: Comcast Email

First, I have all of my mail coming to BIS, including 5 work accounts and a personal comcast account. I have not found the 3 to 15 minute delay to be an issue. I have found the need for email to arrive in near real time. (BTW, I am the CEO of 2 firms and a VP in 2 more.)

Second, there are several reasons NOT to use the carrier email address. First, if it gets out and is "harvested" you will get more SPAM than you care to receive since it is a totally unfiltered address. Second, you cannot transfer that address if and when you change carriers. When you cancel your BIS account, it is gone for good. And third, the only way to read mail to that account is on the BB. Might not be a deal breaker, but you need to keep it in mind.

If you do what you are suggesting, you will still have to log into the PC client and delete and/or mark the mail as read as it will not be so marked if you forward.
