For two users, keep it simple initially and use mail forwarding or a
product such as Wireless Mail. If that doesn't suit your needs then look
into the BES option.

Re: Blackberry and Domino?


As Gregg said you can use POP/IMAP for accessing the mail, but it will not

do the calendar functions. We have ours set up that way, although we are
in the process of going to a BES server.

I am not familiar at all with the actual set-up of Domino and the
Blackberries for this, but it is not exceptionally difficult to do. One
caution I would offer is that if you use this approach you will need to
keep a careful watch over the IMAP process. If you don't, it will take
over you system and cause some major processing headaches.

I should have listed that I think calendar is one of the things they
also want on their Blackberry and that I don't really want to open the
firewall for IMAP. Never taken the time either to make sure if you have
to open SMTP for sending or if it is a capability of IMAP. They won't
like POP as they want to keep emails in their mail files and have some
folders with 100s of messages.

I can hear the screams that they shouldn't be keeping that much in the
mail files and should at least be using an archive file, but they have
saved $k by being able to quickly retrieve an _old_ moldy email to prove

their point. And they are C-level.

such that:

You can use POP/IMAP to access Domino mail. But you have to open the
on the firewall and enable the service on Domino. You also have to
the Domino mail file for IMAP by issuing the following command:

load convert -e maildirectory\mailfilename

They can send and receive mail as if they are connected to your
But there won't be any calendar integration.
