    Question Replying to emails that come from redirector

    Advertisement



    Hi there,

    I'm new to Blackberry's and just before I go out and spend money on a Curve i'd like to ask one question.

    My company do not use the BlackBerry enterprise application, so the only way for me to recieve emails is using the director (leaving pc and outlook running which isnt' a problem). Obviously i'm going to recieve all my emails, but when I reply do they still go from my work email address (the redirector source)? I'm asking because my BlackBerry would have no access to the exchange server. This makes me think if you only use the redirector you can only view emails.

    All advise much appreciated!!

    Thanks
    Seth

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~You don't need to leave it running. You would use BIS instead of BES like many of us do. You can still get all your email pushed to your BB! Go ahead & take the plunge.

    thanks for that! I soooo want to get the curve!

    I just took a look at the BIS service. so just to check... using that I can get my work emails (even though they don't use a BES). If I reply to an email using my BB handset it appears as though it came from my work email address?

    sorry for stupid question.. just want to be sure!! trust me the money is burning a hole in my pocket already!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~You will quickly learn that there are no stupid questions here. The emails won't look like your work or home email but you have the option to include a signature that let's them know you're replying from your BB. You won't regret your purchase.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I use BIS & have 6 email accounts pushed to my BB. It's great because I'm on call 24/7 so I can't handle security issues anywhere & anytime.

    Re: Sending emails that come from redirector

    you know what I got an email today from a client of mine.. his signature was...

    "Sent from my BlackBerry Wireless Handheld"

    but the email address was his company one. that's a usual setup then?

    It'll work no matter where the pc is as long as you have web access.
