  • Blackberry BIS access to free/personal Google Apps mail?

    Does anyone know if it's possible to connect to a free Google Apps mailbox using BIS? I'm led to believe that it's possible since my associate swears blind that he's not paying for Google Apps for his domain. However on the feature comparison for the different editions of Apps, Blackberry connectivity is only shown as available with the paid-for editions. Ditto for access from mail clients, which suggests that IMAP etc is not available on free accounts.

    Those who know me may be surprised that I'm even considering Google Apps but sometimes even Google can be the lesser of two evils...

      short answer:
      Yes.

      I just logged onto my BIS portal (http://www.instantemail.t-mobile.co.uk/) using the relevant details (you may need to speak to your mobile provider if not sure - or it may Just Work from your handset)

      and chose to add a new account
      It asked for the email address, and password.


      Now my handset has told me i should get my email in about 20 minutes.

            Aha, same as a standard Gmail account then. Thanks

            Long term, I'll be moving this domain to SBS, but an emergency has come up in the last few days (crap service provider became even more crap) and there's been no mail flow since Tuesday last week. Now just wrestling with a DNS propagation issue to get Google recognised as the MX.
