Rick,

From someone who just signed up with Exchange My Mail and is also a Cingular user, the answer to your question is no. You'll still need your Cingular Blackberry plan. Exchange My Mail doesn't take the place of your data plan. It's like an add-on to it.

What exactly would be my advantage? I've read the posts, but not all of them have all the info. I run a one man small business, but my clients email me and with Cingular they do not always come through real time.

If I may ask you, what exactly did you sign up for and are you happy so far?

Here's their page on the service for the Blackberry.

http://www.exchangemymail.com/blackberryfeatures.html

I'm sure Dave will chime in here and answer your question. I called their number and spoke to him live. He answered all my questions and concerns.

I've only been using the service for two days but already I see the following benefits:

1. The use of the MDS proxy.
2. Faster internet browsing.
3. The ability to use third party applications which rely on data.
4. Wireless synchroniztion of calendar, contacts, tasks and notes.
5. Outlook web access (access your Outlook from any computer anywhere.)
6. Ability to use folders within Outlook on your Blackberry.
7. Free upgrade to Outlook 2003.
8. Free e-mail account.
9. No need for desktop redirector
10. Triple DES encryption technology.
11. Ability to specify "from" e-mail address on outgoing messages.
12. Real live technical support only a phone call or e-mail away.
13. Immediate e-mail delivery.

I feel I was previously only using the Blackberry to 75% of it's potential. Like something was missing. Now with the service it's being used the way it was designed to be used.

I had a question about this service. The company I work for has an exchange server but not a BES server. I understand that I can have my business email forwarded to the EMM server and have the reply appear to still come from the business email address. Is it possible to integrate a personal POP3 email account as well? Would it require a second mailbox or can the pop3 account be setup with its own from and reply to address like the forwarded exchange account?

DD# - Yes, you can integrate a pop mail account into your outlook profile, but it would use the same reply to address as the main. If you require a seperate reply to address for that pop account, then yes, you would need a second mailbox.

Doubles - that is correct. Right now we do not have the capability to integrate with any other Exchange Servers.

Figured I'd chime in as another satisfied customer. David and the crew at EMM have been more than patient with me through the entire sign-up and setup process. I have BES now integrated with my Outlook 2003 at work using XP and RPC. It works flawlessly!

I'm going to start tinkering with Entourage at home and see if I can make it work there as well.

Thanks to David and the crew at EMM!

Default Great service!!

Here's another endorsement for exchangemymail!

I purchased my 7250 about two months ago and was using it for everything EXCEPT email [probably the only person in history to buy a BB and not use it immediately for email]. I was planning on adding BES service, but I was dreading the setup since I am not really technologically advanced and I don't have an IT department.

After tiring of plugging in every day to synch with Outlook, I decided to go with BES for its wireless synch and email capability. Based on the positive endorsements on this site, I decided to give exchangemymail a try. I finally decided to do it last Saturday and could not be happier with my decision.

After upgrading to Outlook 2003, I called exchangemymail to transfer my email hosting and to set up the BB. It took just a few minutes to set everything up and transfer my existing Outlook information. I had one glitch importing all of my old stored emails, but it was my fault. I called Dave back, and he walked me though the fix in about five minutes. After that, the BB was activated, and everything worked perfect. It was completely painless!

Once it was setup, I wanted to tweak a few settings in the way it handles my email. Since I acquired all of my BB knowledge on these forums, I turned here for answers to these issues. A few searches on this site yielded all of the answers I needed, without the need to start any new threads. Thanks to everyone for your help!!!

I love my new service, and I am 100% happy I used exchangemymail for exchange hosting and BES. Thanks again to Dave at exchangemymail, and I recommend their service without any reservations.

PS - This is the first time I have publicly recommended any product or company, but it's that good!

Can I use this for just the 3rd party WAP access and not email/contact/calendar? I am ok with my BIS email setup, in fact I don't want to do the full sync process as I don't have my outlook running 24/7 so what's the point. But I am getting tired of fighting Cingular for 3rd party WAP access to check the weather/news.

You don't have to have Outlook running at all to take advantage of this service. This isn't like the desktop re-director. That's the beauty of it. All the information is stored in their server. When you do have Outlook opened it syncs with their servers to update the information/content on your Blackberry.

But I am struggling with adding a $20 amount to an already $85 bill each month when all I want is access to 3rd party apps. I could care less about syncing my BB with anything, I just don't use it that way. Yes, that might be cool, but not something I care about.

My other choice would be to go to T-Mobile or Verizon for $50-60 month and dump Cingular all together.

I struggled with the same thing but in then end it's worth it.

For me Cingular's coverage is so much better than T-Mobile's. I'm not sure I'd switch to T-Mobile if it were free. Verizon isn't an option either since I need to be on GSM.

It's just a part of being with Cingular I guess.

You could always try for one of Cingular's lower priced Media Net, Media Basic or Media Works plans and see if they'd let you add that on to your plan. I'm not sure they'll let you add one of these plans onto a Blackberry plan but they'd give you access to the wap APN.

I thought I could add the $10 media net plans myself online but it failed on the last step. I might try again after next month's bill gets here and I have them remove the charges again

We are in the process of looking for a new home, so I hate to switch providers until I know where I settle. I also have to wait until after I get all my credits. I have a coworker who swears by T-Mobile, not at them, but we plan to move to a more remote area, so coverage could be a big issue.

Someone else on the boards just mentioned they called into customer service and tried to have them add a Media Net plan on top of their Blackberry plan but they system wouldn't let them do it. It was telling them a data plan was already added and they couldn't have two data plans at once.

Okay, I am definitely interested in using exchange my mail, but had a few questions.

1) When it comes to wireless syncing, is it possible to sync my BB to two computers? My desktop and my laptop? If so, that would be amazing, that way I have consistent information on both my computers at all times.

2) I have several email accounts I would need my BB to access, between the data plan at cingular, and the exchange my mail would I be able to access these: one gmail account, and three personal domain email addresses? Do I need to know any details about being to access all four email accounts? Would I be able to reply to the emails with their respective address? Or will I have to use one alias to answer all four?

Thank you so much for these answers.

Ironically I am saving up so I can get my 8700c through Cingular, so I don't have it yet. But I do have the plan, the BES, and the case all picked out already. Ha.

By the way I subscribed to the Exchangemymail service Saturday and couldn't get the BES activated on my 8700. I emailed tech support and within a few minutes the problem was resolved by Dave. Thank you for the support and response.

I signed up yesterday as well. I had previously been using a different company for my BES. I figure I may as well support a company that supports this site. Was up and running in a real short time.

Thanks!

I too have T-Mobile, any +/-'s

Also, I don't use Outlook, I use Microsoft Entourage on a Mac laptop that is NOT always connected to the Internet (much less even turned on). Is this service worth it? I'd be willing to pay the monthly fee for the synching benefits of mail, tasks, calendar and address book entries.

Also, not to end up with a competitor, but is there a similar service out there individuals who receive multiple long/large emails with large file attachments?
