Default Any way to auto-forward BIS email?

Please Login to Remove!

I have BIS set up to check my corporate email, it works fine but I'm curious if there is a way to get BIS to auto-redirect or auto-bcc another email address? OR, is there a way to POP my BIS email? That would also let me pull down corporate email through POP.

I edited the account settings and set an auto-BCC, but it doesn't seem to work? This would solve a lot of my problems, I would appreciate any insight. Thanks.

AutoBCC via BIS only works on outbound email. You'd have to set up inbound autobcc on the email account you're integrating with BIS (in your case on your corporate email).

If your outbound autobcc isn't working properly I'd double (or triple or whatever) check your settings. If they're correct then contact your carrier.

Thanks Takeshi, but if I was able to set up an inbound bcc, I wouldnt be trying to autoforward BIS email. I think my corporation disabled redirect and forward rules in outlook hence I cant set up any rules.

What I want is to get corporate email delivered to a third party email address which is integrated with another smart phone of mine. I figured I can use BIS to poll my company email and then figure out a way to get to BIS email from elsewhere. Can I pop BIS?

You can politely ask your IT Admin if they would mind editing your Exchange Profile settings. Just let them know what your objective is, and ask them to Forward ALL Incoming Messages To: [email address]. Make sure to ask that they click the box "Leave a copy of messages on the server". This will push all of your work email to the device, but still allow you to work with your Outlook/Email program at your desk.

Not sure if this was the solution you were looking for, but this would give you your Corporate emails and your BIS emails on the device. Just make sure to remove the corporate email you setup on BIS (if they do forward it for you) and keep only your [email address] on the page, with the Reply-To address as whichever address you want people to Reply To.

Confusing? Yes. Worth it? Probably. :P

That stinks! Well, what would your ideal email setup be?

Do you want both your company email and BIS email accessible from your work's Outlook? If so, you may want to look into some Microsoft POP plugins. Once you find some information on how to access POP accounts from Outlook, just keep plugging in different settings until it works. My guess is it would be something like incoming.cingular.blackberry.com or something like that.

I'll play around with my Sprint BIS to see if I can get it configured in Outlook. If this isn't the setup you're hoping for, let me know and I'll try to offer other suggestions.
