Default Corporate e-mail with Key Fob

Please Login to Remove!

Here is the scenario: my small company was bought by a large corporation and now I am being forced to be on their server. Currently, I am able to redirect my e-mail to [email address] account but when on the new corporate server, they do not allow this. In addition, when logging onto their server to view e-mail, a constantly renewing (random) password is required from a digital Key Fob which means I can't use the redirector software. Is there any way to continue to receive push e-mail on my 7100t? Any help would be greatly appreciated with this Orwellian nonsense.

Thanks in advance.

The only help you can get will have to come from your corporate IT department. Even then I don't see how they can suspend the random password generator requirement for just one account. It's an all-or-nothing proposition once it's implemented. Merrill Lynch uses this system and there is no way to log in without the password. The IT department would have to forward your email before letting it hit the corporate servers. They could probably set up something for the CEO or somebody of that importance, but even he would need a good reason.

Sounds like they are putting you on BES. If so, you will have no trouble getting your mail as it will be redirected from the mail server to your BB via the BES connection.

My company uses key fob's also for remote VPN connections through the firewall and this has no impact on my BB service. Sounds like they know what they're doing and just trying to secure communications.
