Does that help?
Perfect. My brother is thinking of getting a BB we probably aren't going to be able host Exchange for him on our office server so he's going to have to go the BIS route.
So we will be able to forward his email wirelessly to his BB and sync all other items (Calendar, Notes, Tasks or Contacts) via a USB cable? I think that will work for us.
How does the BIS mail forwarding work? Does it have some kind of web based application that checks POP3 accounts and sends the mail to the BB?
Thank you for your help!
