Default New To Blackberry....Question on Email

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everybody....I just got my first blackberry (8700) and will be using it for two Email accounts. I set them up no problem but then it asks me to have an address as the "sent from" address. Sometimes I will need to initiate mail from both addresses. How can I chose (as I would in Outlook or Entourage) which account I am sending from. Also, is a reply going to come from the address that the original mail was sent to. Thankyou in advance for your help.

I think you should do a search first and see what you can find. If I am not mistaken, that question is answered in severalplaces.

The reply to address is only for you default web client address. All other email accounts set up with your BB will have their own reply to address unless you wanna change that one too.

As far as sending emails from different accounts, when you compose an email there will be a "send using" option at the top of the email. Just click the alt button when on that and all of ther options will show up for the accounts you want to use. The two accounts you set up and your default web client address will show up. Just pick the one you wanna use.

When replying to an email sent to you, your BB will automatically use that same email to reply with. Unless of course you download some 3rd party app that will allow you to change that.

Ignore the BS reply above mine. Most people just sit on message boards and wait for someone to post something they can scream "try searching first" about.

My understanding is that the new BIS that Cingular should have be April will let you choose the sent from address from your BB. See my tips page on Gmail and Yahoo!

Oooh, that is pretty nifty.

I think this answered my question I had on a post I just put up, but I am not sure if these solutions work as well for BES. I still need to find out if it will all work the same with the replying back email address.

Default BES and BIS

They are supposed to work together. On BES you generally only have one corporate email, but your BB will be able to use the BIS assuming your corporate IT doesn't shut that down. When on a BES there is something called an IT policy. The company can control much of the functionality of the BB that way.

Yes any BB will let you choose what email account to send an email from. When you compose an email the "send using" option will be above the "to:" line. Also you can change your "reply to" address for your web client only. The other email accounts you have set up will not let you change the reply address unless you download something like BBreply. At least this is how it works on Tmo.

I have the BlackBerry 8700 with Cingular and there is no way to change the FROM address when composing an email.

My friend has a 7290 with T-Mobile and it has a "Send Using" dropdown at the top of the email.

Is this just a Cingular problem???

Default Bwc vs BIS

I think its cause Cingular won't be udgrading the BWC to the BIS until April or so.

You can do it if you use PocketDay.

So T-Mobile uses the new version of BIS which allows you to change the "From Address", and Cingular hasn't upgraded to this yet? =\

Are you sure about that? I’m not certain if that feature is possible with PocketDay.

You can set the "Reply To" email addresses in Pocketday and then when you compose an email or reply to one, you can select which email address you want to use as the Reply To for that email by clicking the wheel and selecting the email address before you send. Has to be done with each email however. Using Cingular, you can also set the reply to under "options" on their blackerry web client site.

Thanks, I understand about the “Reply To” concept in PocketDay but your response of “You can do it if you use PocketDay” to this user is puzzling.

^ He’s asking about the “From” address that appears when you receive an email not the “Reply To” address.

So your telling me that if you 10 email accounts set up on your BB that it won't let you choose one to send an email? It will only use one default email address???? I don't see how thats possible. Even before Tmo switched over to the BIS system you could change what email you wanted to use sending an email. Not when replying but when you first compose one.

Are you sure? I can understand when replying to an email because you need a 3rd party app to that but when composing you should be able to change the sending address.

I'm going to call Cingular tonight to figure out what is wrong.
It is silly that I can only send an email from one address even though I can have up to 10. The help file on the actually blackberry itself says I should be able to select a "Send Using" email address

Hmm, keep us updated on what Cingular says. This feature is very important to me.

I need to be able to reply to emails sent to my business address with my business address, and keep that seperate from personal emails that I reply to with my personal address.

I don't care if it all gets "fowarded" to one email, as long as I can set up alias's that "show" I am sending it from the address of choice is available.

I guess I misunderstood the question. I stand corrected.
