Default No multiple From: addrs?!?!

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

I am brand new 7520 user, and even opened a NXTL account yesterday in order to try the BlackBerry. I did what I felt was adequate due diligence and it sure seemed that the 10 E-Mail addr polling capability via BWC would have been sufficient for me.

The problem is, of course, that I can not select a From: address on the device. This is a serious limitation as far as I'm concerned, since I need at least to be able to compose messages from my "work" and "personal" addresses.

So far I really do feel that the device itself is fantastic, or at least has great potential, but this limitation is seemingly a show stopper for me. I need to be able to use multiple From addrs, from the device. I do not use Windows or BES so the various work-arounds will not help me.

I guess this is a rant because I've not seen any other solutions posted yet to the group. If anyone has any ideas or updates (etc) please let me know.. I'd sure like to continue using my BB.

Thanks,
AGR

Default One more thing...

I also wanted to point out that I feel misled because while playing with the BB before purchasing, I noticed that the device help says:

"If your handheld is integrated with multiple email services, you can select the service from which your message should be sent. At the top of the message, in the Using field, press the Space key until the preferred service appears..."

I'm guessing this is for those who have their BB integrated with multiple BES systems???

Do a search on "BBReply". It allows you to choose the Reply To address for difference accounts on the BWC.

The "Using" is if you are on both BES and BWC. You can choose which service to send out on.

Default BBReply

Thanks for the reply.
Yes, I did spend quite a bit of time researching this before posting my rant/question, and I did run across BBReply. I didn't mention it because it does not solve my problem. It does not seem like there is a solution to this problem ATM. I guess that I will politely rant at Nextel/RIM and see what they have to say before I return my BB. I shudder at the thought of going back to a Treo/palm device
Thanks,
agr

Agr, if your work mail is on an Exchange server, you can set up the desktop redirector for that address, and use the BWC for your personal mail. When you send mail under this setup, you can select from what service -- i.e., work v. personal -- the e-mail will appear to have been sent.

Instead of retyping or copying/pasting, let me just direct you to my post here...

Multiple email accounts

Granted, that is with redirectors. I like them much better because I don't want to wait 15min for the web client to poll. Not sure what to tell you if the web client is your only option. I was going to try the web client and BBreply until I realized I could do all I wanted with the redirector.

What about using a program like Pocket Day, this really neat app does a whole lot more but also allows you to select multiple reply addresses with BWC. I have both BWC and BES and when I choose web client I can configure Pocket Day with multiple reply addresses.

Try Reqwireless EmailViewer. Although it is a "pull" solution, It does allow unliimted accounts (with their From: addresses) to send and receive mail. The down side is that you have to manually "pull" your email rather than have it "pushed" to you like in the "standard" blackberry email....
