Is your school account your primary email? -- You can set your outgoing email to appear to be from any email address you whic. In which case you can forget about your [email address] account and only use your existing email.

You are likely trying to set up POP polling. I would just forward your email FROM your school account directly to the blackberry address. Then go from there.

Alternatively you can set up the blackebrry server to check your school's email at 15 minute intervals by programing your account details. If you don't have the server info, you will want to call your school's IT help desk (they definitely have one) and get them to give you the server details and type of server- ie: imap/pop/etc.

if you've forwarded it directly to your blackberry email, it will be real time. If you set it up to poll a pop server, it will be delayed by up to 15 minutes.

Yes, and in practice the 15 minute delay is really a drag. It kind of defeats the purpose of having a Blackberry. That is why, until Rogers installs the new BIS with Yahoo integration (not holding my breath on that), I am using autoforwarding from Yahoo. Yahoo is also designated as my From address as ShaneToronto described above. It makes for a seamless real time system. Nobody even knows that I am using a rogers.blackberry.net address. The outside world communicates with my yahoo address.

I would set up the fowarding.

In the spot where it tells you to put the address to foward it to, put your blackberry address in, which in my case would be: [email address]

the address you got when you signed up for our BIS, is what you would put there. I would suggest doing that. It is an awesome thing.

If you set up forwarding and not polling- ie: the forwarding was set up on your school's end (which it seems is the case), then the delay is dependant on their server. If they forward the message immediately (as most servers do) then yes, your rim will recieve the message instantly.

I guess you'll find out for sure at midnight.

Sadly forwarding is not free with Yahoo. I pay US$20 a year for the priviledge. But it is worth it to integrate my long-standing Yahoo address with my Blackberry. As I understand the new BIS Yahoo integration will allow free real-time POP3 integration. I also understand that forwarding from GMail is free.
