BIS and Exchange Email via OWA
I am seriously considering a BB 7130c on Cingular's BIS plan. My company uses Exchange 2003 and we have Outlook Web Access.
I am trying to confirm how I can connect w/ my BB and access company email.
My understanding is that I can configure the BB to access exchange via OWA - with my log in credentials - and I can send and receive email from my company. I understand it's a periodic "pull" and not the instant push - my concern is that I want to be able to hit email without having to run something like redirector 24/7.
With Outlook Web Access - I do NOT have to run any other software for company email correct?
That is exactly how I have mine setup on my 7290. You will need to be running BIS 2.0 to use OWA. Lag time is usually 15-20 minutes, however, last night it was several hours. You can choose to send messages from whatever account you want.
I recentyly purchased an 8700 and set up my BIS account and put in my e-mail address with my and password for my account and it configured for the OWA.
BIS 2.0 and OWA 5.5 - messages marked as READ
i think my problem was discussed earlier in this forum but somehow I can't manage to find the solution.
yesterday i configured my 7100g with OWA account (FYI, my Exchange server still oooolllddd version 5.5 :( ... ) and everything works well until then I noticed that all new messages in my outlook were marked as READ after forwarded to my b'berry..
is there anyway to solve this issue ?
your on BIS 2.1 - this is a reconcile function
w. 2.0 your Exchange email is marked as read/unread; deleted emails from your BB go to your trash on your OWA account - same w/ sent items
it's a one-way reconcile only - bb->Exchange server
if you don't want this turn it off und mesages -> options -> wireless reconciliation
you can also just have your exchange admin forward your email to your blackberry address
interestingly enough, our IT guys just shut this option down (ie. forwarding from exchange). Not sure why, he was talking about pop3 and security risk, yadda yadda...(stopped listening when he went full IT speak).
