Default Another rookie email question...

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All,
I jumped into the BB world yesterday with the sole intention of filling my email void whenever i leave my office machine. I got an 8700c, signed up with my 29.99 Cingular data service, setup my BIS account with my (comcast) email address and away i went - or so i thought! I can send email OK and only receive a portion of what's coming into my Outlook Express. I was hoping i'd either get none or everything, where the former would mean i need to check settings - but just getting some is frustrating as it defaets the purpose of me having the BB. Are there any rock solid techniques/tips i can follow/read that will justify my keeping this cool tool??? ANy help greatly appreciated and i apologise in advance if i'm re-hashing common inquiries.
PS This is a fabulous resource - keep up the good work!

I've resolved it - In case you're wondering it was a mail account setting which needed to be set to save the messages on the server instead of just deleting after delivery.

It does sound like your Outlook Express is set up to remove mail from the server. There's no way for BIS to retrieve mail and push it to your BB if the mail isn't on the server.
