    Default POP3 access for Blackberry

    Hi Guys,

    for the first time we are using Blackberry's at our company.

    The Boss has been to the Mobile shop today and the Guy has asked whether we will be accessing the mail through the Internet mail method or on an Exchange style server. The Exchange option is a lot more expensive and our Boss doesn't like opening his wallet too far or too often!
    I know there is a Blackberry connector for Zimbra and I 'm sure it works well but all we require is email access.
    I'm assuming the connector would synchronise the Calendar also, the Boss just wants to get at his mail though.
    So, is it just a matter of opening up the POP ports to the Internet, activating it on Zimbra and putting the details into the Blackberry?
    I'm sure there are many Zimbra Users out there who know far more about such things than I do so please could someone just let me know if I'm talking complete rubbish or not?!

    Thanks
    Russ

    If the boss just wants his emails to be forwarded, he can use the BIS (Blackberry Internet Server) from this carrier.

    You can either give the carrier the account information (account + POP3 password) or use the BIS through forwarding.

    Giving the account information is not a good idea (I read in this forum that user and password were stored in cleartext in the BIS) so you should use the forwarding option.

    The carrier should give the boss an email addresse that looks like phonenumber@carrier.tld (or anything@carrier.tld) and you can put a forwarding adresse in Zimbra.

    This is the way it works in France (with Vodaphone and Orange).
