Default 8700C & Outlook

Please Login to Remove!

I just got my company 8700C BB, and now I would like to send and receive emails from it. The setup was ok, I've managed to get it running, but for my sadness I can not sync my emails ( specially the sent box on my BB). I will be repplying a lot of emails from my BB while out of the office. We are not using Exchange or any other email server, so my options are limeted, perhaps.

Please someone point me how to get out of this nightmare.

Thanks,

from your first message it sounds like you've got a BIS account set up
have you added your company address to it? if not this is your first step
(sign into your BIS acoxxxx to do this)

with BIS you cannot sync your emails that are in your Outlook with your handheld - it pulls the emails from the server to your handheld and it will only pull new emails; not old

Hope this helps

Default outlook sent box sync

I've done all that, but the whole idea is to sync my emails (specially) the "sent box" since I'm in the office two weeks out of the month.

Thanks,

Just search for synching sent items without BES or synching g-mail and blackberry, or something along those lines and you'll come up with several methods using cingular's BIS and the BIS 2.0 which is what tmo uses.

I think I'm having the same problem. I am a personal user with an 8700g on T-Mobile UK and haven't found a way of syncing it with Outlook 2003 for calendar/contacts etc. I assume it is not possible, is this correct? (I have searched the forum and Help folder/instruction with came with the BB but to no avail). If this can be done, does anyone know how to set it up?

since you have an 8700C i'm assuming your carrier is Cingular
what you want isnot possible w/ BIS 1.8 (which Cingular has)

w/ BIS 2.0 wireless reconciliation will mark emails as read/unread; deleted emails from the handheld will delete from the server and emails sent from the handheld will show up in the sent folder on your server. This only works for IMAP and Exchange accounts (and Domino if you use mail connector)

POP will not do this.

if all you want is to get a copy of the email that you sent from your handheld to your Outlook then set up your auto BCC. You can set up a filter in the BIS site to not forward email sent from your address to your handheld (so that you don't get them back to it again)

Default outlook sent box sync

Well, The solution you've mentioned will do it, but in a long run it will be very confusing. I would like to find a solution that will sync (or send) a copy from my BB sent itens to my Outlook sent itens. Perhaps a third party software or service? I'm confused already Thanks for your help, but pls let me know if I can make iot happen with a software and or software.

Thanks,

There have been some step by step tutorials to do this on the forum... The only other option you can look into is a 3rd BES/Exchange provider which is what alot of us, whos company do not proice this do. for 17. 98 with a forum discount I get all the beneifts of exchange, and a BES. www.exchangemymail.com can answer any questions you have about this method, as well as offering a 10% discount on your service since you are a BBForums member. Basically you forward your email to your EMM service, and they set up a reply to address. You also get the benefirts of wireless synchronization of calendar, tasks, notes, MDS (no charges from cingular outside your BB UNLM plan, for use of 3rd party software) etc.

I also use http://www.exchangemymail.com for a hosted BES and it adds much more functionality to the BB. Great for organizing your emails, calnedar and tasks.

Great... It looks like for someone that does not have an email server in house theres no other option that works perfect than exchangemymail.com. Now Im wondering what the code for discount price is, anyone?

Thanks,

You can enter 'DISC10' in the discount code field of their order form. This gives you a discount on the monthly fees, but not the one time licensing setup fee.

I've been contemplating moving over to exchangemymail. I'm with Mailstreet right now but over the pass few months (growing pains) there have been delays in the messages being relayed to my Blackberry.

Every one always has good things to say about EMM so I might just migrate over to EMM, but I have a lot of domains attached to my e-mail also.

I love how you can enter contacts in your Blackberry @ they instantly are there on your exchange account and vice versa. It's so awesome. I sure do not miss the Activesync days. Good bye Windows Mobile.

You should contact Dave in tech support at EMM if you have questions about transferring your email domains. He is a great resource.

I was not able to get any discount with exchangemymail.com they said that they have no idea what the code is, and if I type the blackberryforums it wont give any discount. Any idea what the code is?

Thanks,
