Default Email Synchronization via USB lead BB 7290

Please Login to Remove!

Please excuse me if this is posted in the wrong location. I have searched the forum thoroughly but have yet to find a clear answer to my problem which is; I have a BlackBerry 7290 for which Iíve configured the web client that forwards email to the device (Service Provider is Vodafone). I use the USB lead to sync with my desktop. This works fine for calendars, contacts, diary ..etc, however this will not consolidate my email. Changes made to my email via the BlackBerry will not sync with the device.

Do I require BES service to consolidate email, even when I only wish to do this whenever I sync with the USB lead?
What set-up is needed to sync email with the USB lead and would I still be able to use the web forwarding service?

Bit of a Newbie

You can not synchrozine emails, however you can reconcile emails. There is a difference between the two.

With email reconciliation, when you mark an email as read on the handheld, it will mark it as read in your mailbox and vice versa. If you move an item to the deleted items folder in you mailbox, it will remove it from the handheld. If you delete from the handheld, it will send to the delete items folder on your mailbox. Same with filing emails.

However, if you have emails on your handheld but not in your mailbox, you can't "synchronize" them so that they appear in your mailbox and vice versa.

If you're on a BES, you can take advantage of wireless email reconciliation. You can also wireless reconcile with your BIS account but not any integrated POP/IMAP/OWA accounts with your BIS account.

I'm not too sure about the wired email reconciliation though. I still think you need an Exchange/Domino/Groupwise email account and be on a BES to take advantage of that but I'm not sure.
