Blackberries use a push service to send email to the device, not POP3
which pulls emails from the server. My understanding is there are 3 ways
to accomplish your goal.
1. Blackberry Enterprise Server for Domino - Pretty expensive for two
2. A client running on the PC. The PC has to be left on all the time and
I'm not sure it works with Notes.
3. Wireless Email from This is a filter that once
set up pushes the email out to the blackberry. I have the mail forwarded
to my Verizon account. If I send email from my BB it shows in my sent
mail view. I also have it set up so my respond to address is my Notes
address. For calendar synch I use the USB cable desktop software which
comes with the device.
Contact me off line if I can help.

Blackberry and Domino?

I have a CFO and and a COO that are looking at getting Blackberries and
they want to be able to:
1) Access their email at any time and place via the cell network
2) Access their office desktops at any time and place via the cell network

The only server in house is the IBM i and it is running Domino 8.1 and
the Apache web server with plugin for Domino. All Domino users are using
either the Notes client or DWA.

I thought I had read in the lists that you had to have a Blackberry
server in order for them to access their Domino mail. However the cell
rep is saying all they have to do is load a free piece of software on
any PC.

Is the above true?

How about security if the above is true?

Is there any secure way for them to take remote control of their office
desktop when there is no Wintell server present?
