Default Email Address - Send from Desktop
I am having an issue with my blackberry when composing email. I use BIS, I had the desktop redirector going for my work exchange box, but that has been disabled/uninstalled. BIS shows no connection to my work email, but still by default when I compose a new email from my BB the default sender is my Desktop. If I send from it, it never goes through but I get this message in my exchange inbox:
How do I stop this, I do not want my work email to have anything to do with the BB any longer.
This message is used to carry data between the BlackBerry handheld and an associated server. Please do not delete, move or respond to this message - it will be processed by the server.
From your home screen, go to Options>Advanced Options>Service Book. Look for the e-mail address in question. There should be two entries.....one for CICAL and one for CMIME. Highlight each one, press the BB menu button and select Delete.
Then you'll want to go back out to Advanced Options>Default Services and set this to what you want your default e-mail address to be.
You might want to reset your device after you have done all this.
Please post back if you have any questions.
Thanks for the advice. I tried following it but my service books do not list the work-desktop related email address.
I did change the defaults per your instruction however - that gets rid of most of the headache really. But I'd like for the work email to have nothing to do with it at all.
I hear ya. Do you have an icon on the homescreen for this e-mail address?
I'm not familiar with desktop redirector, but have you tried uninstalling that application from your desktop? Perhaps this is something your IT department can help you resolve.
At least from now on, when you send an e-mail from you device, it will default to what you have set in Default Services.
No icon or evidence that the email was ever used on the phone, that I can find - other than the option to send from Desktop.
I have uninstalled the redirector - does not seem to make a difference.
I am the IT department... lol
My problem is I don't know Blackberries very well.
LOL! Well so much for that.

I think I have made a little progress but still not quite there.
I reinstalled the desktop software and redirector, went into the settings and it still had all the information there. I disabled the redirector, removed addresses and such, and then uninstalled per RIM's instructions.
The problem is DESKTOP is still an option to use as sender, logging into my BIS account there is no record of my work email address, and service books do not show anything related to DESKTOP or that specific email address.
If I send an email using DESKTOP to myself - I get the RIM server notification on my exchange mailbox, but it never processes and I never receive the email. So it still has some sort of connection to it.
Well, I fixed it - though I am not happy with how I had to do it.
I was reading everything I could find - general consensus has been, uninstall Desktop Software and Reinstall choosing the option for BIS instead of BES/Work Email. Then Delete service books.
I tried uninstalling reinstalling multiple times, and even though I would choose the BIS version, it would still install the redirector and it held all my information from the initial set up.
I uninstalled again, reinstalled, chose BIS but it still prompted me to choose an outlook profile, this time I just closed it with out choosing and it made the redirector unavailable.
However I still had the option to send from Desktop. So I backed up my device and wiped it. Upon recovering, I no longer have the option to send from desktop, so it appears that it worked.
Wow, what a pain. Sorry I wasn't around earlier. I was going to ask you what version of Desktop Manager you were using. Since I always choose the BIS option, I don't know if newer versions of DM even have the option to install redirector.
Yes - Certainly not the route I would have preferred to take.
Thanks for trying to help
