Again, I apologize if I'm asking questions that sound ignorant but I'm the learn by doing type and I haven't really played with one of these yet. Also the more I read in other threads the less clear it is. So here goes:
xxx8226; Will the BIS service still push my emails to me if they're not POP/IMAP? I keep seeing those listed in other threads but nothing about exchange server emails. (it doesn't matter if they're delayed 15 minutes, etc.)
xxx8226; Will I be able to see/edit/get reminders on the outlook server's calendar wirelessly or is that something I have to "sync" with my laptop's outlook client?
Using BIS, you will need to sync with Outlook. Wireless sync is only available with BES. You will be able to get alarms/reminders if they are set up in Outlook's calendar or on the BB calendar.
xxx8226; I don't have to log into my OWA outlook server through a web browser every time in order to get these emails correct?
That is correct. Email is viewed in the Messages folder on the BB.
xxx8226; Setting up the BIS service can be done through my laptop when it's connected and such and it'll copy my current settings from my outlook client?
I think you will need to log into your BIS account and set up each email account there, similarly to what you have to do to set up and Outlook email account. I do not know if the new Desktop Manager will do that for you or not.
I think I'm pretty close to picking one of these up if this is true.
thanks for your reply penguin3107!!!
