    Remote Calendar with email and blackberry

    In school we have remotely held email - using the LEA. It let's me synchronise my calendar and email with my iphone.

    My cousin has a business and is interested in doing the same thing. He has webhosting and this provides him with email which he downloads to his blackberry. He downloads his mail as well using Outlook 2007.

    He wants the calendar function of Outlook 2007 available at all times - so when he checks his calendar on the road it is automatically updated with the same on on his local computer. I assume this has to be a remotely stored calendar as otherwise he would have to keep his work machine on.

    Does this make sense?

    Regards

    Gareth

    Alright Gareth,

    Generally what people use to sync email on a blackberry is BIS because it is FREE, Not the best thing in the world but it does the job all you have to do is specify your OWA URL and Username and Password.

    Problem you will have is that to get your Calendar, Contacts etc. you will need either Blackberry Enterprise Server or/ Blackberry Enterprise Server Express (Free), IF it is hosted by your LEA then this is probably going to cause you problems as the LEA would need to have a Blackberry Server for it to work.

    without BES it's not going to happen unfortunately.

    Hope that helps,

    James.

    Hi James,

    <Send you mail the other day - have you got it?>

    Are there any commercial services out there that would offer the sort of service he maybe after for his business?

    Tell him to buy an iPhone ;-) works out the box, or he could get Nokia Mail that also works unfortunately blackberry requires the above.
