Default BlackBerry - email via Outlook Web Access?

Please Login to Remove!

We currently do not have any Blackberry devices but have a user who wants a basic device to check his email from the road. Since he brings his laptop with him when he travels, the desktop redirector client is not a good option and Enterprise server is cost prohibitive. Has anyone used Outlook Web Access "OWA" to send/receive email using their Blackberry? I'm wondering how the small screen handles formatting? He's looking at the Blackberry 6710.

Thanks!

I use the BWC to push my e-mail from Outlook Web Access. It is a setup you do in the BWC. Very simple.

I would not recommend trying to use the BB to directly access OWA.

Exchange 2000 - OWA uses frames and the BB doesn't handle frames like a browser would, so you can load up the 'navbar' or 'viewer' frame. If 'navbar' you can load up your Inbox from there (with a 7100).

This is EXTREMELY slow.

I believe Exchange 5.5's OWA loaded up just fine from past tests (with a 6710).

Best way is to configure the BWC to pull your emails from your OWA via IMAP. That works.

You get emails pulled to you at a 15 minute interval that way.

Not all Exchange administrators allow IMAP, so keep that in mind. We have IMAP disabled for user access.

jibi - that's a shame. Let's wait to confirm whether he's definitely got IMAP disabled...

If IMAP is disabled, then ouch again. What about pleading the company for a Small Business BES at least? (Will you take Visa? No? How about my Left Arm and Right Foot?)
