Default New user has a few questions....

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

I am starting out as a freelance contractor and have purchased a Blackbery 8700v on a Vodafone network as a way of being connected to my yahoo email whilst I am on client site (it's not allowed on most sites).

I have a few queries that I'm sure are already answered somewhere here but I couldn't find the answers.

I have signed up for Yahoo MailPlus whichi provides POP3 which is needed for the email to appear on my Blackberry. I can read messages but when I delete them on the Blackberry they stay in the yahoo mail account. This is a pain as I have to delete message twice in effect. I think it is probably a yahoo configuration issue rather than Blackberry but it must be a common issue....

The second query I have is regarding desktop software. I used to have a Palm that had a client interface that could be used to access the calendar/address book/memos etc and was the Hotsync'ed on to the device. I was expecting to get that with the Blackberry but having loaded the CD I got with the device all it gives me the abillity to do is back up....

Hopefully I'm just being dumb,
Thanks,
James

Vodafone are still on BIS 1.8, and the only way to get the replication of deleted emails is on BIS 2.0 - currently only available on 02 (in the UK that is). It will be a while before Vodafone migrate to BIS 2.0 I'm afraid.

The local sync is done via the Intellisync icon in the Desktop Manager program. Open it, click on 'Configure PIM' and you can set your contacts and calendar sync in there.
