Default BES Gmail Integration

Please Login to Remove!

I want to thank everyone for their feedback on my original questions about the 8700c. I've got one now and and am pretty happy with it except that I want to add on some 3rd party apps and it seems that I'm going to need BES to get Webmessenger or Verichat to work properly (tried out the demo and it took several minutes for messages to be delivered). I have a few questions about BES though...

First, would I be able to keep my Gmail integration with BES the same way I can with my Cingular BIS? I like that mail sent to my Gmail account is pushed to and reconciles with my Blackberry with out having do any forwarding. Will I retain this function with a hosted BES setup? Maybe someone from Exchangemymail can comment.

Second, what is IM performance like on the Blackberry with Webmessenger? Is delivery instantaneous or is there a noticeable delay? I've noticed that Google Talk works like a charm right now, even showing "so-and-so is now typing" in real time. I'm looking for something like that.

Neither Verichat nor Webmessenger need BES and having a BES will not improve their response time. For both, messages are sent to their servers before going to the destination IM service and that can add some delay. Having said that, I've used both and have had only minor delay. Google talk doesn't need to go through intermediate servers so it's going to be the quickest. What kind of delay are you seeing?

Gmail account will work exactly the same with BES. There's no interaction between the 2.

Alternatively, you can use the google talk client and follow the instructions in the sticky at the top of the "Aftermarket Software" forum to get access to other IM services.

You can also buy the Webmessenger Jabber client for a one time charge and use it with Google Talk or another Jabber service and still get to the other IM services. This is what I do because I like the Webmessenger interface better than the Google Talk interface.

Never used Webmessenger.

BIS and BES can always live together, no matter what BIS accounts are integrated.
