BIS and BES
2 questions re BIS and BES emails. We have not set up our BES installation yet and I want to be able to go ahead and use the BB for my POP email account in the meantime. Questions:
1. Can I set up POP email access via BIS and then do the BES activation things once that is all set up and ready to go? I think it works OK having BIS and BES running together, but not sure if there are any initial set-up considerations, e.g. must do BES activation first etc.
2. I have read elsewhere in the stacks that the BB mailbox mixes messages from all email accounts set up, but that there are separate icons for each mailbox that act as filters for each mail account. When the BB syncs with the BES, do all POP emails get sync'd back to my Exchange email? I don't want personal mails getting mixed up with work ones on our company's mail server.
i use bis and bes. question 2 is a definate No, Bis mails dont land on the exchange server.
If I understand your questionj 1 correctly, that would be a Yes
Thanks! I guess Q1 should have ended with does it matter if BIS is set up before BES?

Emails from all accounts (BIS & BES) show up in Messages view as well as SMS messages and PIN messages. There are separate icons for each of the BIS accounts (Each icon is named the email account firstname.lastname@example.org) that will show only the messages sent to that account. Like the previous user said, the messages from your BIS accounts are not actually sent to your Exchange server, they are only sent to the Blackberry device itself.
I think your question was answered (which is good coz I had BES before I added BIS)

My thumb wishes me to go off air for a few days.
Re: BIS and BES
See my posts in here and Voda carriers subforum - make sure you get voda to provision BIS and BES to your handsets to avoid frustration when setting up the bes on devices
