Default I will be travelling with my 7250....

Please Login to Remove!

my job uses lotus notes but I want to get my email on my personal blackberry...any thoughts? We also have webmail, but when I went to add the account to my nextel sites it did not work. Is there anyway to get my Lotus work email without forwarding to my personal home email account? my job uses Cingular for their enterprise server.

tks

I'm confused. Does your company have a BES server? If so why are you not able to have them add your device to the server?

The BES server does not care what your service provider is. All they need to do is add your account to the server and if they/you are running 4.0 then you can do an Enterprise Activation and you're all set. You'll have to contact your BES Admin and have them set up your account and give you an activation password.

if you can detail it to me step by step, I can tell my IT guy because he said he does not know how to do it.

If they have added other devices to the BES then they can add yours. There is no difference in adding a Nextel devie (a 7520) and a Cingular device - NONE AT ALL.

Tell him to just add your account to the BES server like he would for any other user. There is nothing special he'd have to do because your service provider is Nextel. I am a BES Admin and we have users on 5 or so different carriers. All of them are added to BES the same way. Sometimes I don't even know what carrier they have and I really don't need to know.

Under Email Settings you could set the 'Send Email to Handheld' option to 'No'. I believe this setting is configurable for both your BES email and your web client email.

Another option would be to create a filter that says anything sent to your work address should not be forwarded. You could turn this filter on and off as desired.

But I'm not sure why you would want to turn it off.

I am clear how it works with web client but I guess i am lost as to how the BES works. If I am at work, will my emails still come on to the blackberry?

BES email will work the same way as it does with the webclient. It will always go to your blackberry as long as it is on and in coverage unless you tell it not to.

cingular came back to my IT guy and said:

"Unfortunately, it can not be done, you are correct. The technologies are different and it doesn't work on our system."

Question

Wait what are you asking him to do? Transfer your bb device to be on the cingular network or just add your Nextel device to your company's BES server?

Thumbs up

OK. That is what I thought. I think you just need to explain that to them and ask him to add your Lotus Notes account to the BES server and give you instructions on how to activate your device. You can do that without being on the Cingular network. It is possible that they have a corporate policy to not allow personaly purchased devices on the corporate BES server (we have a similar policy) but it doesn't sound like that is what he is telling you. Maybe you should just lie to him and tell him you now have a Cingular device and ask him to set you up. It would make no difference so long as he adds your account to the BES server and gives you the instructions (ie: password) to activate it.

sugar apple... i don't think you understand ANYTHING that is being said in this discussion.

1. Is your company using BES? (Blackberry Enterprise Server) Note: This has NOTHING to do with Cingular, Nextel, or any carrier. BES would be installed on your companies Lotus Notes server. Your IT guy would most definitely know if you are using BES.

2. If you are using BES on your Lotus Notes server... just ask your IT guy to create an account for you on the BES server. It's very simple. It does not matter if you are Nextel, Cingular, T-Mobile, whatever. At most, he might need your PIN number from your Blackberry device.

3. I don't know where billing came into this discussion. That's just funny to me.

Penguin..I understand 100%. I just could not figure out why the IT guy and the cingular rep were saying it could not be done. Keep in mind it was cingular that brought up the part about not being able to do it because of the difference in technology-not me. I went and spoke to my IT director and he gave the ok, I think the reason they were not saying it was possible was the corporate policy part. The part about my bill came up because when this company gives you a blackberry they pay for the service, i was just reiterating that i wanted to see email on it not get my blackberry service paid for. I thank you all for your help. He asked for my pin and he said he needs my laptop in the morning so I should be all set. I love this forum!!
