Default More people should know they can get e-mail instantly

I keep meeting Blackberry users with POP accounts who set up their e-mail using Cingular/BB e-mail setup and have to wait 15 minutes for e-mails. I just have all my Earthlink e-mail forwarded to my Cingular e-mail address and it shows up on my BB 8700c virtually immediately. I just set it to forward on the Earthlink website. I'm not sure everyone realizes that they can do this.

But not all POP3 providers allow you to forward from their systems. Earthlink and GMail do. But others don't. So the polling features of BIS are appealing.

Absolutely!! It is excellent information. Having e-mail forwarded or pushed to the BB is much faster than using BIS. I don't have anything going through BIS at all. Of course 99% of my e-mail comes through BES.

I wish I could get all my POP email instantly but I can't. My ISP doesn't allow forwarding, so I have to rely on polling.

I thank you for that info, but like many others AOL will NOT forward email. The 15 minutes is seldom a problem and I prefer to use my AOL account for most of my email. My employees and I use PIN to PIN messages and they are instant.

Damn, gadgetman, I like to think I'm pretty smart when it comes to using my BB, but your post just shattered that illusion... I've been using BBs for a few years and relied on polling my personal e-mail accounts - resulting at times in those delays you note. It never occurred to me to forward 'em from the accounts themselves, which my ISP allows! Thanks for teaching this old dog a new trick!

peznut.....since your a mac user, and if you are using a .mac email you can have them forward the message immediately. Log into .mac and look under preferences and there is an option to forward and you can choose whether you would like to leave it on the server (to show up in Apple Mail) or remove it.

Brad: Thanks for the info. That's what I realized when I read the initial post (I do use .Mac) and why I feel so stupid for not thinking of it myself!

And if you're a Mac user, please check out the thread I started this morning just for us: "The Forgotten: Mac Users"

New Rogers is old Yahoo.

Yes, Rogers allows forwarding. It sets forwarding automatically when you add rogers account through BWC Web Client. If you are very long time Rogers user, you may have to delete your Rogers accounts in BWC and re-add them to enable this new functionality.

To verify, login to Rogers WebMail and in your account configuration you should see forwarding to blackberry.

It is true forwarding which means instant delivery to blackberry, and your email will be left in your inbox, it will remain on Rogers mail server and when Outlook downloads it from Rogers you'll have it on desktop PC, too.

Rogers (a.k.a. Yahoo) is one of few ISPs which is extremely well integrated with RIM's blackberries, and for blackberry users who live in Canada Rogers is strongly recommended.

As I was told by my Canadian friends it is almost cable monopolist in Ontario and may be other provinces: Canadians would not have hard time choosing Rogers.

What about attachments though? With the web client, when I receive a large important file, I can forward it to other people via the web client and never have to download it to my BB. How would that ever work with the forwarding method?

What I did was I got my own domain. The nice thing about having your own domain is that you can move it around if you need to but the address always stays the same. You can also name it whatever you want....like [email address]

Right now I have made2own.com hosting me and I pay them $3.50 a month. I think their cheapest plan is $10 a year.

I have them forward my email to gmail just to get it spam-cleaned and then forwarded over to my blackberry email.

The email doesn't get taken off the server by my BB so I receive it on my desktop at home also which then takes it off so that I can have a permanent copy.

It arrives within seconds on my BB.

Yup, I do this as well with one of my domains on my hosting plan. Works great. So when someone sends me an email, it goes to my laptop Outlook, as well as a second copy which gets sent to blackberry.

And another tip....

Here is what I just did recently... basically created my own "sent email" exchange sever. All I did was create another email account with my hosting plan for all SENT emails. So, using BIS, I have it CC every handheld message I send to this address. This address is setup in my Outlook and with a rule that automatically adds all email sent to it to my SENT folder within Outlook. Therefore, I always keep a copy of all the emails I send from my handheld within Outlook as well (rather than just on BIS), so it appears within Outlook just as if I sent it directly from Outlook on my laptop. It's definitely clean and organized!

Can I check my BIS account using an IMAP program on my mac? I'm thinking that if I have my mail forwarded to my BB, I'd still like to have access to it at a desktop. I'd also like to avoid have 2 *copies* of a message, but rather just have one copy I can access using IMAP. Any ideas?

Question pin to pin? Text messaging

I am new to this page and a real green blackberry user. I just ordered my unlocked 8700 to use with T-Mobile. Can anyone be kind enough to tell me the difference of me sending a pin to pin message or simply just send a text message. I have never used the pin to pin, and while Im at it what is this edge technolgy, I hear T-Mobile has it but wont advertise it. What is this mms? Sorry for all the questions at once....but there is know better way to get educated other than by other blackberry users.

PIN to PIN is a message sent from one BlackBerry to another BlackBerry. Unlike SMS text messages PIN to PIN does not have a message limitation. Since they are unique to each BlackBerry they can be sent between carriers.

Another option if your ISP does not allow forwarding (or deletes the message from the server when it forwards-- thereby not having it available to download to your desktop ISP) is to set a computer to download your messages from your ISP every 1 minute and use the "rules" in Outlook or Outlook EXpress to forward the messages from your desktop to your BB. You can use the Outlook Express settings to tell your desktop to leave the messages on the ISP server until you delete them or for a set number of days so the message will be there for the BIS to forward when it polls every 15 minutes. The forwarded message will have you as the sender so it is a little bit of a hassle to reply but you will have the same message sent vis BIS within 15 minutes as well, with the proper sender and can reply normally. Downside is tha you will get every message twice
