Can Blackberry E-mail sync with GO?

Talk about anything that doesn't fit in the other catagories :) (and of course is about Group-Office)

Can Blackberry E-mail sync with GO?

Postby jhsdurham » Wed Mar 05, 2014 2:54 pm

Am I correct in thinking right now, Blackberry users cannot sync e-mail with GO? Has anyone out there made e-mail sync with GO for a blackberry work?

I was able to sync calendar data. But as I look in the logs for any effort to sync for e-mail, I see paths that reference \OWA and \Exchange which do not exist on our server

We don't use Exchange. We use hMailServer for our mail server software, and nutsmail (ensignia) for a web interface. Most of our users prefer that over the style of the Group Office e-mail tab (and GO can't do vacation message setup where as Nutsmail/hMailserver can).

Works here with BB10 either via ActiveSync or IMAP.

We've tested a Z10 here successfully.

How about earlier devices though... like Blackberry Bold 9900 or Blackberry Curve 9300? That's the phones we have, and are stuck with for at least a year more before our contract allows for a cost-free upgrade.

And if it's Active Sync, is there a need to download an extra app for this to work (such as the need to install Funambol on the BB for calendar sync ) ? If so, what app is recommended for the phone to install for this to work?

We used funambol before on older BB devices.

Hi,

I've already been using funambol to create the sync for the calendar events. But I see no options anywhere inside funambol for telling it to sync e-mail. It has options for pictures, contacts, files, etc.. but not mail. Any other suggestions? Or is it some weird thing of "choose contacts" and it would then also sync email even though it's not mention as such?

why don't you simply use IMAP?
