My question is:
1)What do i need todo to:
A) Sync/ push my work email (Lotus) on it?
B) Sync /push my personal email -pop3-on it?
I mean does what we pay the carriers for the data pay for the BES and MDS services?
2)My corporate IT department charges $35 every month for providing BES/MDS and for pushing my work email / calenders etc to the BB. Do i still need this?
3)Which public MDS/BES server is the best? If i sign up for one of these, will i NOT need to pay my corporate IT deptt to get my work email and calender on my BB?
thanks a lot in advance
1. You need BES to connect to your work e-mail unless you have Outlook Web Access access to your e-mail (I'm guessing this is doubtful in a Notes environment.
You need BWC to connect to your home e-mail. You can connect to 10 POP and other accounts via BWC.
2. Yes, I think you need the company BES. You will not be able to sync your calendar for sure, and possibly not your mail if you don't have this.
3. With the company BES, you don't need a third party BES.
