    What format is email received? POP or IMAP or OWA

    Advertisement



    HI there, I have a quick question. Im currently using my bb pearl to get my email from work (although I use BIS w/TMO). I actually setup my work email account thru my bb and it asked for my webmail address. So is this format POP, or is it a special OWA version? It seems to be slower than POP, but maybe thats just in my head? Thanks for the help on clarifying this.


    Edit: sorry, this probably belongs under the general discussion.

    im not sure im the best person to explain this, but i 'think' i am setup just like you and they call my setup "OWA"...so, im not on the BES, and i push my work email thru to the bb. all i did was set it up like 'normal', entering my email address and password and it setup instantly. i did read on here that there are some settings that have to be set on the exchange server side to allow this...

    as for speed...mine really does vary. i can be sitting at my desk and actually hear the alert from my bb before it appears in my inbox in outlook. other times, 5-10 minutes. i think it really does depend on traffic.

    Thanks cherrichiodo......mine is pretty slow all of the time...usually dont get any emails at the same time I do on Outlook, then again, I get an average of about 300 emails a day. I just figured out today that it wasnt POP. All this time I thought it was POP, but its actually OWA......
