Talking Just switched from SKII to 8700g - mail question at bottom

Please Login to Remove!

Wow, can't believe it took me so long. I do miss the sidekick keyboard a bit, but that's about it.. everything else is far superior. The size and weight difference is certainly worth the smaller keypad.

The more shortcuts I learn the better it feels.

Anyway, just thought I'd share.

I've had it about 4 days now and have already got a decent rss reader, gtalk, tethered to laptop though usb, berry411, googlemaps, and am connected to my work though the BES.. so I can see out intranet and get corperate email.

The part I was surprised about (and a bit dissapointed) is the email intergration. I assumed I'd see all my folders and sync between bb and exchange (like imap.. my goodlink friends have this). Seems like the BB only pulls from the INBOX and not other folders (I've got tons of exchange filters to move mail to subfolders and they never seem to get sent to the BB). I get litterally 100s of mails a day though work and filtering is the only way I can manage it. What's the best system when using a BB? I see the BB has filters too.. so is it best to remove my exchange filters and set them up on the BB so it sees all mail ?

Or do I filter anything I don't want to go to the BB on the exchange side and let all others just go to inbox.. Any advice?

Thanks, overall I'm very impressed though. I'm guessing I'll figure out a sys that will work for me

you can set up filters in the redirector settings to allow certain folders w/ email to go to handheld as well
not 100% sure how to do this - but it is possible
