Default Redirector vs. BWC Mail Connector

Please Login to Remove!

For corporate e-mail (exchange server), with no BES, I am trying to decide between using the BB redirector or the mail connector with BWC. Both seem to work on my T-Mobile 7290--4.0 desktop and handheld software--but I need to decide between one or the other. The advantage of the redirector seems to be speed in pushing messages to the handheld. The BWC mail connector, while slower, avoids the need to have my desktop computer always on (and eliminates the hassle of getting someone to reboot when it goes down and I'm out of town). Am I missing anything else relevant to the decision.

By the way, in case I decide to stay with the redirector, does anyone know how to uninstall the BWC mail connector? Does not show up in Add/Remove Programs or the Start Menu.

Many thanks. LP

Default Redirector...

Just to be quite honest with you, I have had plenty of problems with the redirector. I have been out of the office several times and needed a reboot with nobody to do it for me. Also, my ol' trusty internet connection here in the office seems to go down quite a bit. After I started using the connector I have had "zero" problems. I have not found the need to remove the connector so I'm not familiar with removing it. However, if anybody knows why I would also like to know for future reference.

Thanks

very helpful, thanks. When you switched from the redirector to the BWC connector, did you have to reinstall the desktop software with the BIS installation to avoid forwarding of the "network" messages to the handheld?

There is a post about this issue in this forum titled "strange email"--http://www.blackberryforums.com/showthread.php?t=4803

Thanks, LP
