Default Is there a way to get this to work with a blackberry?

Please Login to Remove!

My question is: Is there a way, using 1st party software, 3rd party, anything, to be able to open two outlook exchange accounts at the same time where all the information is "pushed" out to the device using a bb? I think i read somewhere on this forum that this was not possible using the native software but perhaps using 3rd party software.

I am seriously looking at getting a BB, possibly the 8703e from VZW. For a bit of background hehe. I have been a ppc user for many years now and although i am pretty happy I am considering changing camps as i have found that despite all the bells & whistles the most important thing to me is having my email, appts, task, & contacts with me at all times.

My main problem is that i work in a group of people and the way we have our outlook setup is that we use the calendar, contacts, notes, & tasks of the head of our group to keep track of all the respective information which we all enter into that mailbox. What this means is that i basically only use my Outlook Mailbox for my email and then i have outlook setup to open another user's mailbox (the leaders) to access/enter all our contacts, tasks, appts, etc.. Needless to say this has been a syncing nightmare as you can imagine and every application i have tried allows you to open only 1 outlook mailbox at a time. So i have been forced to choose between either my email or everything else. I have tried setting up my device on our group leaders account and then using some type of "pull" software for my email but this has never worked out all that well.

Has anyone had any luck in a similar situation or have any ideas how i could get something like this to work?
