I have been a BB user for about five years in the US. I host my own home email server which I use to consolidate personal email and then also receive forwarded work email (from a remote Exchange server). These emails are filtered using rules on my hMail server then pushed to my 8100 that is currently on Cingular/ATT.
I have my BIS email account rules set up not to check email but to allow me to send out email. So,
email as well as
emails both come to my 8100, and then I can choose which email account to use when sending from my 8100 as well.
I haven't cared beans about calendar syncing, etc.
Here is the new problem. I have relocated to Denmark and have gotten a second 8100 through the national carrier TDC. I got a rude surprise when I found out that BB service here is ONLY through BES. I do not want my IT guy back in the US trying to install BES Express.
I would like to know if the following options are possible -- in order of preference:
- Hack my TDC 8100 to allow BIS
- Install BES Express on my personal hMail server without Exchange
- Install BES Express on my home email server and also install a lightweight Exchange module
- Use a hosted solution like MailStreet or ExchangeMyMail -- but will it allow that receipt of both my home as well as work email and then forward these seemlessly to my phone so that the original from and to addresses are retained?
- Give up and get a M$ device since our US and Denmark offices already supports these
I still use my US 8100 over here but since the voice is so expensive, I use my Denmark 8100 for voice, so I have to carry both devices for now. If I can get both my home and work email on the DK 8100, I can turn off the US 8100 and leave it until I travel back home to the US.
Any advice would be appreciated!
