I have my business e-mail set up with Exchange and BES, and everything works great.
I'd like to get my personal e-mail on my BlackBerry as well, but I can't find a great way to do it. Right now, I just have an IMAP account for my personal e-mail. The option I've explored to get this to my BlackBerry is to use BIS -- if I understand this right, this means I've forward my e-mail would be forwarded to
, and then they'd show up on the BlackBerry. I don't think this is a great solution due to Cingular's 25 MB storage limit (I'd hit that quickly), a lack of a way that I can figure out to get e-mail out of the BIS system, and a web interface that only works right on certain browsers. I also noticed that you could have it check an existing e-mail account, but that defeats much of the purpose for what I use my BlackBerry for -- I don't want to just read messages that come in, I want to file them and get them out of my inbox for when I sit down at my computer.
Is there some way I can use my own POP or IMAP server and still get "push" functionality, and the ability (in IMAP's case) to move folders around? Am I better off just merging my personal e-mail into my business e-mail account on Exchange/BES? Or is there some better option I'm missing?
