Default BES at work, Exchange at home

Please Login to Remove!

I have a BB8830 setup on my BES at work and now I want to get e-mail and contacts from my personal Outlook/Exchange Server setup - what's the best way to do this?

I tried installing the BB desktop software at home, choosing BES as the e-mail redirection option (as opposed to BIS), and that kind of works because I am now receiving e-mail from both by work and personal accounts to my BB... but - they're all going in to the same folder on my BB and there's no way to a) distinguish between them or b) choose to send a new e-mail from one account or the other. The other problem is that I'm getting RIM network messages in my personal e-mail.

Now if I were to choose the BIS option in the desktop redirector at home, would that break my BES connection with my work account? I guess ultimately what I want to do is to maintain my BES (Exchange) connection at work use desktop redirector+Outlook+Exchange at home for my personal e-mail and be able to seperate the two accounts on my device somehow. Possible?

BIS and BES are entirely separate and have no impact on each other. The only exception would be if you rcompany's BES admin restricted use of BIS.

You really should use BIS for your personal email. The redirector isn't reliable as you've noticed.

As for email arriving in Messages -- all email, SMS, MMS, PIN, etc arrive in Messages. Search on setting up searches to filter messages.

Ahh, I am wanting to do the same thing. I wouldn't mind so much if they did both go into the same message lists, but it would be nice if you could say color code the messages. I see the option to color code the backgrounds, but those background stripes are very bad and I would rather see color coding in the message list.

If you figure anything out, please post it back here. I will keep an eye on this thread. I will also post if I figure anything out.

Thanks

Default Making Progress

Ok, as takeshi recommended in my other post I created a couple searches/filters and assigned a hot key. Now when in the messages list, I just use Alt+W for work and Alt+P for personal.

Now, I saw in the user guide you are suppose to be able to change the from address when you have multiple emails, but I don't see that option. Currently using BES for work email and BIS for my personal POP. Any ideas on what I need to do or check?

Thanks

Just figured out the from address part. When composing a new email, you can choose. If you are replying it will send it from the account the original was sent to.

Basically as mentioned above the searches with hotkey are evidently the best option. I found the links in the post linked below useful for setting it up. I use alt-a and roll the alt-a combination with my thumb.

1 Exchange Email and 1 Yahoo Email

Hi Everyone and thanks for any help in advance.

I have a bb 8800 on bes at work and have an exchange 2007 for my other job. Does anyone know if I can install BES Express edition for my second email account and have my bb connected to both BES at the same time?

Thanks!
