Default Question regarding BIS 2.0 and Forwarded Emails

Please Login to Remove!

I will upgrade soon to BIS 2.0 on Rogers. I am quite certain that it will integrate with Yahoo since Rogers has already outsourced its standard webmail accounts to Yahoo and those are sending emails to Rogers Blackberries in real time.

Here's the issue: In addition to the Yahoo MailPlus autoforwarding that I currently use, I also have my work emails autoforwarded by our server to my rogers.blackberry.net account. We do not have BES.

I do not want to poll on our work server. Forwarding is real-time (and there would be other problems using POP3).

Will I able able to compose emails that have my work address as the From Address (not just reply-to; I get that with PocketDay) if I am not polling on my work address but just using forwarding?

(Follow on wild idea: if a POP3 account must be integrated on BIS to do this, could I perhaps create a fake one for my work From address on BIS but give it false information for the POP3 and SMTP access just to enable the From address on my Blackberry?)

Thanks in advance!

i'm pretty sure when you change the "reply to" on the BIS 2.0 carrier account (i.e. @rogers.blackberry.net) it changes both the from and reply to

Thanks. But can I just create any new From/Reply-to address? Or does it have to be an account that BIS 2.0 is polling on? I want to autoforward emails from my work to my Blackberry adddress, not integrate my work account with BIS.

So I think that this is going to work great with the new BBReply utility. I get work emails forwarded to my Blackberry account but can change the From address to my work address in my reply .
Also look forward to Yahoo integration because Yahoo has great spam filters and they're completely bypassed with auto-forwarding. (At least I hope the spam filters can be used...)

From what I recall, using fowarding on your Yahoo Plus Mail account does NOT use the filters. It sends everything, junk and all.

I don't think it's changed since last year.

Agreed. That's what I use now. But I'm hoping that Yahoo integration with BIS 2.0 will bring the filter into play. The integrated system deposits a copy of your email in your Yahoo inbox (unlike with autoforwarding). The question is whether that means it goes through the Spam filter before it forwards it to your Blackberry...

I think the Yahoo Plus Mail has a feature that if you POP your mail to your computer via Outlook or other mail app, you can opt to pull ONLY filtered mail... or everything (spam + wanted mail).

Under Yahoo Plus Mail > Options > POP Access & Forwarding, this is what I see:

Quote:
Web & POP Access [POP Settings]
Access Yahoo! Mail via the web interface and through any email program using POP3 (e.g., Eudora, Outlook, or Netscape Mail).

When downloading new messages:
( ) I don't want to receive any messages that SpamGuard thinks are spam

( ) I want to receive all messages, including those that SpamGuard thinks are spam

( ) For messages that SpamGuard thinks are spam, add [Bulk] as a prefix to the subject
If the POP controls let you do that, I wonder if the BIS 2.0 integration does the same?

That is indeed a good question. I'm going to do the upgrade to BIS 2.0 as soon as Rogers allows it. I'll post back with the answer.

as long as the emails aren't in the inbox on the server you won't receive them on your BlackBerry

personally i've got my filters (on the BIS site) to not forward to my handheld unless the email was sent directly too me; no spam for me

i'll run a test though to see if this changes when i have no filters set up on the BIS side - don't think i'll get spam from my bulk folder though
