    Question BES / BIS & Internet email accounts...

    Advertisement



    Let me get this right. We have a BES server, for coporate emails. I have x amount of internet (pop) email accounts setup to send those emails to my Blackberry (setup through the 'setup internet mail accounts, icon).

    Is there a limit on the amount of Internet email accounts one can have to send to the Blackberry?

    Also, if you have a BES server, do you 'automatically' have a BIS as part of it? I don't understand...

    You are allowed 11 accounts on your BB. The one through your work is BES, the ones you set up on your phone are BIS.

    Ah, so companies would not 'really' have a BIS server then, correct? I mean, what would be the point?

    ps: thanks for the reply...

    BES

    BIS

    Also, I have BIS and BES. BIS is for my personal emails, Yahoo, Comcast, Gmail, and BES is for my corporate email. Hope this helps.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    You still get the BIS through your carrier, regardless if you have BES. You can add up to 10 pop accounts as Chris says above. If you need help setting this up lemme know!
    Good luck!

    RIM Provide two "main" services, Enterprise and Prosumer. Enterprise is for connection to a BES and Prosumer is for connection to BIS-E. They also provide a service called Enterprise Plus which is both together. Most carriers have E+ as their default service even for devices provided to corporate customers so you may already have access to a BIS account.

    The BlackBerry BIS servers are SRP connections to the BlackBerry Network so they work in the same way as a BES. But instead of getting mail from your Corporate mail account, it polls your POP3 account.
