Default BES Pin signiture

Please Login to Remove!

My boss just received a 7290 that goes through the companies BES server. For emails he has a signiture that gets put onto the end of a message. The problem is 99% of the time PIN messaging is used since a lot of the people in the company don't go through the BES. Is there a way for PIN messages to have a signiture attached? Thank you in advance for any info that is given

Maybe I don't get it. Why use PIN messaging just because the others are not using BES? They are getting email on their BlackBerry handhelds. Right?!? Just send them email like normal.

If he really wants to send PIN messages there are a couple of fairly easy solutions.
  1. Go to Options > Owner and fill in the Information field exactly as he wants his signature to display. When composing a message, type "sig" and press twice to insert the signature.
  2. Go to Options > AutoText and create a new entry. Enter your macro into the Replace field. Something like qs1 (quick signiture 1). Populate the With field with the desired signature. Same as before, type "qs1" and press twice to insert the signature.

There is no way to put a signature on a PIN message, just as there is no way to put a signature on an SMS message.

The way it was explained to me is this: the people that are on the BES the company pays for their service through TMO. The people not on the BES can have any service they want since the company is not paying for. There are people that have nextel, verizon, cingular and some that have t-mobile. The reply to address that shows up in an email is not the correct one if a nextel sends to a t-mobile. So everyone started using PIN messaging to get around this. That's the way my boss explained it anyway. Thanks for the tip on how to get the signiture to work

That makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. On our BES you can choose any carrier that you want. We don't care.

Your boss is REALLY confused.

Lovely. They really should work on getting things properly rather than trying to use PIN messaging as a bailing wire workaround. There's no reason not to have the Blackberries from other carriers on the BES unless the company doesn't want employee's using non-company-paid BB's attached to the BES.
