Default Questions about Lotus domino and BES and redirector

Please Login to Remove!

Hey everyone,

Two questions. At work I use Lotus Notes with a Domino server. I have a BlackBerry 7290 as well. First off, I'm assuming my company uses BES as it's a major computer manufacturer, however, I'm just curious is there any way to filter mail I receive on it? Or will it just receive everything? The reason I ask is because my job doesn't require me to have a BB so I just bought one myself and don't want to pay a lot for data. Just curious if my admins give me BES access, can I still restrict who I get mail from and such?

Second question, if I can't or don't want to use BES, what other options are there? Does Desktop Redirector only work with Exchange? Any options like that for Lotus? Thanks!

When connected to a BES server you will receive any messages that hit your Inbox and Sent folders. I have setup rules in Notes to sort messages to folders I don't want on my BlackBerry. Unless specified, messages that go straight to a folder are not forwarded to the handheld. You can also create filters on the handheld itself, but they are not as flexable.

I agree with d_fisher 100%. Adding the rules on the blackberry would not limit your data transmissions and therefore would not save you data transmission charges.

i've actually got rules set up to only forward email to me if it's sent directly to me or a few mailing lists

as for your question about what you can use if you can't use a BES - redirector isn't an option (it was made for Exchange only)
however, you can set up a BIS account and use mail connector or POP or IMAP access (if your IT enables this) - or iNotes if your carrier is still in BIS 1.8

in other words you have a lot of options

This is not 100% correct. Redirector will indeed work if you have Lotus Notes. We use it and I have used at other companies I worked at. Also, if your company issued that BB to you and set it up to connect to a BES server, you can not disconnect from the BES server without them knowing. you can leave it connected to the BES server and still use BIS. Redirector would be redundant in the case of a BES server.
