[OT] Mobile Email Connecting

I've been using a Blackberry for over a year now. I was mortified as
well when I received the price for the server software so I just created
a rule in Outlook to redirect all messages to my BB. Its been working
great.

Subject: [Vantage] [OT] Mobile Email Connecting



Awhile back our president saw a Blackberry and wanted a proposal to set
that up for remote email. When I gave him the costs for a server and
the server software (to connect to Exchange) plus the devices and
wireless service costs he put it on hold. Especially since the cost per
user for only 2-3 users is pretty high when the server costs are spread
out.

Now he has seen Verizon's email options that run on the desktop and push
messages out to the phone. The downside is they require the mobile user
to leave their laptop running on their desk -or- setup a dedicated
email client PC to login as them and push the messages out while they
are gone. The upside is no server or server software to connect to
Exchange.

Another option seems to be Mobile Windows with ActiveSynch and Mobile
Outlook but I am unclear about the connection technique, wireless
services required (internet?) and modem type device(s).

All he wants is message text - no attachments or graphics.

Any opinions out there about the best method to allow 2-3 people access
to their Exchange based email via their cellphone? For your favorite
method what is needed to make it happen? Rough idea of the cost?

Thanks,

Todd,
I have 3 BB users and I don't use the BES (Blackbery Enterprise Server).
Each user is using the Desktop Redirector software.
Basically, it runs in conjunction with their email (Outlook - Exchange 5.5)
and receives / sends any email in / out via the internet to the BB user.
Works great as long as their desktop / laptop is on.

Todd,

Why can't you just set Exchange to Copy and Forward the email to the Verizon
email account. That way the email will be at both devices. I use Eudora
mail on my palm phone/pda to access my Sprint email. If I'm on the go and
want my email to follow me - I just set my account at my post office to copy
and forward it my Sprint account. Sorry - don't use exchange - too evil for
my blood. If Exchange is too stubborn to do that then you can always setup
a rule at the end users pc (but it will have to running) to forward the
inbound to the cellphone email account.

If you have an Exchange Server and are also using Outlook Web Access you can connect these devices w/o using the expensive server side software or desktop client. It depends on your carrier. If you use T-Mobile and I think Verizon you can enter the url (on one of the setup screens) for your OWA and it will automatically send email to the device. AT&T did not allow this capability. Or at least, we couldn't figure out how to make it work w/o the add on software.

So for us the cost was zero to set up.

We have several Blackberries. I tried the desktop redirector - I had a
special PC that ran the redirector so the users didn't have it on their
laptops. It work okay. I am now having the exchange server send a copy
of the email to the Blackberries web client (Cingular-Blackberry
solution). It works fairly well.
