Default Blackberry and Lotus Notes

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all! New here, but in desperate need of help!!! I'm trying to set up Blackberry email access with a Lotus Notes account - we don't have a BES, as we only have one user, and we can't load BES software onto our mail server because it is not on a Windows based system.

Has anyone else experienced this issue? Any thoughts??

Thanks!

Do you use iNotes? You can supposedly (not sure how) tie it into iNotes without a BES. Or maybe look at RIM's new offering of a hosted BES server.

ok here are your options:

1) add your account using mail connector - this means that your computer always needs to be on and connected to the internet

2) IF you have BIS 1.8 (and most major US carriers have upgraded to 2.0 so you may be out of luck for this) you should be able to add your account using iNotes. BIS 2.0 does not support this option - unless your account was set up before you upgraded

3) have your work inable POP or IMAP access for your account on your Domino server - i'd recommend IMAP over POP - and add your account this way

4) set up a BIS address then have you work forward a copy of your Domino account to this address

BTW - BES is available for Exchange; GroupWise and Domino Servers - so if you get BES express it's fere for 1 person - it's another option
