Default Outlook and Blackberry

Please Login to Remove!

hello everyone,
First let me say, I am not a BB user (yet) , but i am doing the leg work for a friend who is. He would like to synchronize his mail to his device, inbox and subfolders of the inbox. He would like to edit, delete, manage mail on both the PC and his BB, and have changes reflected when he syncs the unit. I can't find anything out there that explicitly says this is what it does. Does anyone know of any software solutions to this? He is not on exchange, but Outlook 2003 on a desktop. Thanks for any help you can give.

M
p.s. if i remember correctly, Dataviz Beyond Contacts did this for the palm OS, or it may have been Intelisync, but I can't find anything for the RIM platform.

The Desktop Manager distributed with the BB does not sync any email messages. The Intellisync only syncs calendar, tasks, memos, and address contacts.

look into BES: Blackberry Enterprise Server

That will provide syncing wirelessly without the need of the computer

although it is a costly option for just one client

He is not on an Exchange server so BES is not ad option. I doubt that a $2,500 software package and probably a new dedicated server is going to be work it.

There are 3rd party suppliers of BES email accounts advertised on BB forums, like Link2Exchange. Pricing is usually $19.95 mo per user.

Ya, there are plenty of BES outsourcers out there, quite a few are sponsors of this forum.

So, as I read replies, I'm begining to see that this may not be just a glich. It may be a real challenge. Does anyone out there have any experience with link2exchange? That seems to be a solution, and I'm not scared of the costs, just curious if it really works.

They work, lots of people on here using them or similar ones. l2e has just been having some issues of late after a number of months of stellar performance. This week most problems are supposed to be going away as they begin to transition people to a new server.

Exchange My Mail is by far the best.

Just got my first BB (8100c), and have been searching around for synchronization stuff. This post seems to kind fit my problem, but is old so I figured I'd check to see if there is any news.

Basically, I do most of emailing from outlook; further, I have the habit of leaving stuff in my inbox if I still need to deal with it (usually 10 mails or so). I'd like those items to be synchronized with the BB, but I do not have BIS. Any recommendations?

A single user BES licence is actually available for free I believe...although you do still ned the exchange or other mail server.

First off, email doesn't sync on any BB -- BES or BIS.

BES does offer full reconciliation but make sure that it meets your needs first. It sounds like it would be as close as it gets to the solution the OP is looking for.

As for hosted BES -- it's definitely a viable option. I've used MailStreet for years and they have always been great.
