    Question Can I add a second email account?

    Advertisement



    Hi everyone,

    another silly question from a BB noob. I am on BES but that of course is only half my life. Is there anyway to also get my gmail messages delivered directly to my BB so I have both my corporate email and my personal email accounts with me all the time? I know I can access gmail via the browser but would love to get them delivered directly to the email inbox.

    Enjoy the weekend!

    I don'T know if it works with your BES server but you could also check for a BIS set up for your personnal account
    I'm french canadian so I can also help you in french, just PM me
    UNLESS it is for a BETA OS, it's at your own risk and I won't support it

    ~via my new 8703e (wap.pinstack.com)~ I have gmail setup to go right to BB, its pretty simple, and has to be setup through your bis account.

    You can only have one BES email account but I believe up to 10 POP accounts (# may be carrier dependent) through the BIS.

    sambakongen,

    If you don't have an IT Policy that prohibits it, you can set up a BIS account and add your gmail account to it. It will act almost like your BES account for email, but not totally. I believe that the only thing is that deletes on your gMail will not reconcile on your BB.

    For a link to your carriers BIS site,so you can set up an account, check out this thread, Links to Carriers BIS Sites. Again, it will work only if your BB Admins haven't prohibited it in a Policy.

    Hope this helps

    Re: Can I add a second email account?

    Rcbjr,

    there is not much I would rather do right now

    But, when I access my carriers BIS site (Tim Brasil) and try to set up a new account using my IMEI and PIN, I get an error message. Probably my company's IT-dept have already created it for the BES service so I need to talk to someone from there to ask for the username and password they choose. That's atleast how I see it - any other ideas?

    Re: Can I add a second email account?

    First post from a brand new user (just got the 8700c today) - my IT dept set up corporate e-mail on the BB using BES, and that works fine. I read this thread, and then set up my Gmail account using BIS - no problem, seems to work. But, two minor annoyances:

    1) Gmail and corporate mail show up in the same inbox, which is not ideal - can I separate them?

    2) New Gmail messages are appearing in my BB inbox - but so is every message I SEND. That's irritating. How do I make it so it only shows messages sent to me, not by me?

    I've looked at the archive stuff...Sorry, buit what is GMail? As a UK user this means nothing to me. Talk about two nations divided by a common language! I asked recently about differently coloured SIM cards. They're all the same colour here (white) but I now know that they are quite powerful zzzzzzzzzzzz

    NJHitmen, Welcome to PinStack.

    Check out the Understanding BIS 2.x.. . . link in my sig for an explaination of the Message List and Icons. As to getting your gmail sent messages on your BB, you can set up a filter in your BIS to prevent messages sent from your gmail account being forwarded to your handheld. Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with your BB.
